Merry Christmas to all. Here are some of my favorite Christmas photos from England. Most of these were borrowed from various pages on Facebook, such as English Heritage, The Queen's English, The National Trust, Anglotopia, and English Houses. If you'd like to see more photos like these, go to Facebook and "like" their pages.

I'm having trouble formatting my posts, so sorry for the rough look of the posts. The information is still there - it just doesn't look very pretty. I will try to fix this over the weekend. Anyway..... If you're in London and you're hungry, you gotta go to Borough Market. Here's a video I found by Migrationology that is recent - from June 2014 - and Mark goes into good detail and also gives you the prices. I was getting pretty hungry at about 3 minutes in. Borough Market is located at 8 Southwark Street, London, SE1 1TL. If you're taking the Tube, get off at the London Bridge station and it's right there. Borough Market's official web site is: http://boroughmarket.org.uk/

Welcome back! It's been a while (at least two years) and I have no excuses. Well, I do, but I won't bore you. I am planning on reviving this blog, but I am also expanding it to include posts on all of England, not just London. For now, the name of the blog and address will remain the same. If you've ever complained on how crowded London gets, here is a neat yet slightly creepy video on what London would look like if the entire population had been removed. For a link to this video from the hosting web site, go to the Londonist at this page.

Sorry I've been away - it's been an overwhelming month with too much to do. But I haven't forgotten Londonholic; indeed, one of my projects is pulling some finances together so I can visit London later this year - after the Olympics. So wish me luck! For now, I'd like to recommend another blog, DISCOVERING LONDON, which, in this post, shows us some photographs from 1901 of the area in London where Aldwych and Kingsway were developed. Here's a photo of what it looks like now, which is basically your typical residential London neighborhood.
