GoGo Hares in Norwich

Yesterday, we took a trip to Norwich to find some GoGo Hares! This is an art trail in Norwich, running for 11 weeks this summer, where 50 hare sculptures are all around the city for people to find. We managed to find 29 (although I only photographed 28 as I was worried about missing our train home!). It was an extremely hot day so I think we did rather well.

We used the Jubilee Greenway route guide from Transport for London (Section 3) as our reference, which takes you through Camden, King’s Cross, Barnsbury, Islington, Hackney and Bethnal Green.

Regent’s Canal Walk, Part 1

Gosh, it has been absolutely ages since I have written a post on here! I have no excuses, just life! Anyhow, this post is about a trip on Saturday we did to a part of London we had never been to before. The Regent’s Canal Walk, as part of the Jubilee Greenway, takes you through Little Venice, past Regent’s Park and London Zoo, finishing at Camden Town.

Unfortunately, we didn’t quite complete this walk, because one of my sandals started to fall apart as we were going past Regent’s Park, so we did a detour that involved meandering around Primrose Hill, before getting to Chalk Farm tube station to go home.
