9.30am Meeting point in front of The National Gallery, Trafalgar Square. Don’t be shy, meet & get to know fellow members, take photos while we assemble to set off at 10.00am sharp ( after Group photo on the steps ) We go through Admiralty Arch then down the Mall. If were lucky a sea of Daffodils may be in bloom the stems are up already. We will be taking in St James Park, watch out for the pigeon eating pelican ( good viewpoint of Buckingham Palace & Duck Island from the Blue Bridge across the lake ).Opportunity to catch birds in flight at eye level here. Then Horse Guards Parade and Parliament Square. After passing Big Ben, look for Boudiccan Rebellion statue and head down along Victoria Embankment past the Battle of Britain Memorial . Pass through the Gardens past the Ancient Tree ( I’d love to see how our top photographers tackle this). Finally we cross the Golden Jubilee Bridge with views up the Thames and finish at The Classic Car Boot Sale at the Southbank Centre adjacent to Jubilee Gardens.
There is a St Patrick’s Day festival at Trafalgar Square between 12.00-14.00 for those not going to Classic Car Boot Sale, just complete the loop on the map at the Golden jubilee Bridge.
The route is about 50 min walk so feel free to walk off-piste, there is plenty of time for photographing many iconic scenes along the way. There is no end time to this walk so you can arrive at the destination at your own pace. If you feel you are running late simply take the shorter route over Westminster Bridge.
The Boot Sale opens at 12.00pm ( £4.00 ENTRY FEE ), expect to queue but once inside its worth it.
There is plenty of choice for food and drink, If the Big double decker Bus Pub is open I’ll see you there.
You can enjoy the experience for as long as you like. There are many photo opportunities inside too.
For those that like to dress up 40′s and 50′s style you wont look out of place.
I hope that many will participate and post photos of thier Classic London Photo Walk day out.
Feel free to wear your London Photo Walk Lens/wrist band so the group is easily identifiable,
