For those wondering what the inside of a London cab looks like, well here is an example.

|One needs a Gloucester when talking of London|
|And a Grosvenor|
|Not to mention a Hyde Park Corner|
I wanted to capture pictures of those iconic buses for you. What better then framed by the window of the cab.

Then later in the day I abandoned wheels and used my feet. With friends I went on a walking tour of Whitechapel and the Ripper Tour. This tour took in the locations associated with the Jack the Ripper murders. Yes, a bit grim I know but a very popular excursion. It starts outside Tower Hill tube station, near the Tower of London

In contrast we also walked along this street of run down houses and shop fronts dating from the era of the murders. It's like time stood still.
The sun set and dusk arrived as we walked. This alley is the site of a further murder and is still much as it was in the era.
Our tour finished in Spittlefield Market
