Yesterday I journed to central London, primarily to attend the AGM of Prudential plc, and afterwards to become a tourist.
The Board of Prudential plc presented an excellent report of trading for the last financial year, after which attendees enjoyed a small stand-up lunch, and had the opportunity to talk to the board members, both of which yours truly took advantage of.
I wandered round Parliament Square, up Whitehall, past the Treasury, past Horse Guards Parade, into the Mall, then into Trafalgar Square, finally ending with a short visit to the National Gallery.
Parliament Square was populated with tourists, as was St James’s Park, and Trafalgar Square. With warm sunshine to accompany their tourisical adventures, happy faces abounded, including mine too. There’s so much to see in these parts of central London.
I did get to sit in front of Seurat’s painting of The Bathers in the National Gallery, though not for long. It was like meeting an old friend. Here are a few of photos of my tourist adventure.
