The architecture had certainly changed and yet seemed equally grand.
The Serpentine was a popular spot on this warm, sunny day.
At this point we both agreed that we were surprised to be enjoying London more than Paris. The streets seemed much quieter and the drivers a lot less crazy, we hadn't seen any smokers (loads in Paris) and the gardens were just lovely. We also noticed that in England you can walk and sit on the grass, though, of course, deck chairs are the go.
