In & Around London: 12 Days of Xmas

Monday is mute on the London Walks Blog (well, almost mute) – because Monday – Tuesday for Christmas! – is the day when we post five – twelve for Christmas! –images captured in and around London by London Walks Guides, London Walkers and Facebook friends. Collated on a theme or an area, if you've got some great shots of our capital and want to join in send your pictures to the usual address.

We're playing fast and loose with the Twelve Days of Christmas…

PEAR TREE Court in Clerkenwell

Short of TURTLE DOVES in our old town, how about a grubby Cockney pigeon instead? 

We're pretty sure that's a FRENCH HEN on this pub at Haverstock Hill

What is a COLLY BIRD anyhoo? Will a Kensington Flamingo suffice?

Three Olympic Games, more than  any other city. Worthy of FIVE GIOLD RINGS we'd say

North London GEESE at Waterlow Park

SWANS by the river (oh, and a large Canary behind)



They're from Westminster, they may well be LORDS and they're definitely A-LEAPING

PIPES are outlawed on the Underground, even if you are Sherlock Holmes at Baker Street

Of all the DRUMMERS DRUMMING we know of only one with a plaque – Keith Moon at the old Marquee Club on Wardour Street

A London Walk costs £9 – £7 concession. To join a London Walk, simply meet your guide at the designated tube station at the appointed time. Details of all London Walks can be found at www.walks.com.
