LORD NELSON & THE RED LION IN LONDON

Days Four and Five

This has been a whirlwind first week, and still another to go in LA, with some book-related meetings that have blown my mind, and an opportunity to walk the streets of London in between. One of my favourite pubs is in Westminster, called The Red Lion, and when I dropped in there this week, I had a great chat with the staff who were thrilled to hear that their cosy venue is featured in Defender and Hunter!

I hope you enjoy the latest installment...

My favourite landmark in London: Nelson's Column, Trafalgar Square.

At the Sherlock Holmes museum. Unfortunately there was a line of 250 people down the street waiting to get in, so I saw it from the outside only.

Can never go past a plate of bangers & mash at The Red Lion, and a pint of Guiness too!

I was thrilled to be able to catch up for a 3Para reunion lunch with my great mate Bill. Just like old times!
