I was on a course in London for Thursday and Friday of this week and decided I would walk to the venue from St Pancras each day. And then back again, at the end of each day. I think it was a longer walk than I expected, and it turned out to be good exercise. I did it in my Merrell Trail Gloves, and they felt really comfortable, so now I need to take them out for a proper run.
I started coming out of St Pancras station and headed past the British Library up to Euston Road. The whole route was on pavements, but it is amazing what you can see if you keep your eyes open. Lots of wonderful architecture, so many churches both in full view and hidden away, and even within this built up City there is greenery. I went down Eversholt Street to go through Euston Station, and came out on to Drummond Street before turning left into North Gower Street. I then rejoined the Euston Road and could see what I will always call the Post Office Tower peaking out over the top of the buildings around it. I am walking past Warren Street station, and then Great Portland Street, and I have Regent’s Park to one side of me as I come on to Marylebone Road. I head down to my left on to Marylebone High Street just before I reach the Royal Academy of Music, and continue all the way down until I reach Wigmore Street. Then it is right on to that and I keep walking along Seymour Street, passing by Marble Arch, until I turn left into Stanhope Place. That brings me out on to the Bayswater Road across from Hyde Park. It is a straight walk along there, past Lancaster Gate station until I turn right into Lancaster Gate and find the hotel venue.
