England - London, Oxford, Bath, Brighton Finally got a chance to go through all of my photography from my recent travel photography adventure in England. England is such a magical place and I can only hope that I will explore more of the United Kingdom at some point. Curious about viewing all of my photos? Here is an album’s worth: England Photography (you can tap or click on each photo to view larger which is always recommended) Here is a little compilation :): This is Leadenhall Market in London. It is a covered market that dates back to the 14th century. But you may recognize it as where the entrance to the Leaky Cauldron is in the first Harry Potter film since this is where that was filmed! I spent a good amount of time on foot in London exploring various alleys and mews… Both of these alleys happen to have establishments that date back to the 1600s which are still in use today. My photography was also on display at Somerset House in London (here are photos of the exhibit). Somerset House was stunning on a rainy day… I managed to pry myself away from London a few times to take the train to visit various cities like Oxford… …and Brighton…. …and Bath… Bath, the city of Jane Austen, is also the home to Roman Baths that date back to AD 60 as well an abbey whose restoration dates back to the 12th and 16th centuries… In between these day trips, I fell in love with Shoreditch where I stayed in a pretty incredible apartment via AirBNB. The street art in Shoreditch is ridiculously amazing… There was a visit to the historic Dennis Severs house that took my breath away as it was one of the most unique places I have visited… And I managed to go on a Jack the Ripper tour that took me into parts of Shoreditch in the evening that made me feel as if I was in another time entirely.. I also managed to visit all the key touristy spots too like the Tower of London where I took this photo of Tower Bridge from a window Medieval Palace… and the Thames across from Big Ben at sunset… And I will never ever forget the kindness extended to me by Shangri-La at the Shard who graciously invited me to afternoon tea and to take photos of London at night. This is a view of Tower Bridge and the HMS Belfast from high above London. There are more photos. This was just a brief compilation. The rest are here: England Photography Hope you enjoy! And make sure to check out Visit Britain for everything having to do with traveling in England (and the United Kingdom!)
