Form and Function - London, UK
several chimneys, perhaps for each floor.
A melange of rooftops and chimneys. Wish the picture wasn't blurry.
A handsome building with a rooftop with a railing so you can enjoy the view.
No picture of the Underground station which we eventually found after a missed turn. London streets take many unexpected twists and turns so it's easy to get lost. A trusty map is a must.
London has an extensive subway system. They started building it in the 1800's so they've had lot of time to expand it. It's a great way to get around but if stairs are an issue, then the buses are a better option, as many of the underground stations do not have escalators. You can buy an Oyster transit card,usable for different lengths of time, which is good on the buses and subways. Very convenient.
