Tour de France

I had to go into London today for a meeting, and when I set off home was in time to see some of the Tour de France taking place around Trafalgar.

They came speading down the Mall into Trafalgar Square, before turning down Whitehall.

I hung around for a while watching, there were tv screens hung on the front of the National Portrait Gallery, with commentary being broadcast.  Along with the crowds of people this made for a good atmosphere!  It was so crowded that when I went to catch the tube to St. Pancras the station was closed briefly until the platforms were less crowded!  Never mind, the weather was lovely so I enjoyed hanging around Piccadilly Circus for a little.
