Next was a visit to Borough Market in Southwark. We had visited on a Saturday on our previous trip to London, but this time were visiting on a Wednesday, so there were only about half the number of market stalls open. It was still wonderful seeing all the fresh produce, and we bought various bits and pieces for a picnic at Green Park.
By the time we made it to Green Park Tube we could see that the pavement was all wet. It had been raining. We nearly gave up, but realised that the ground under the trees was still dry - it must have been a short shower - so we had out picnic lunch.
We were almost finished when we started to feel a few drops of rain. Instead of going on the walk we'd intended (in case it poured with rain) we decided to do our own leisurely walk back to out hotel. First detour was into Fortnum and Mason's. I love that store, but Andy had never been there before. Amazingly, it was him - not me - who pointed out a couple of things he wanted to buy. I was happy to just look.
After leaving there we continued walking to Leicester Square, where we bought tickets for the theatre that night.
We found a wonderful place for pre-theatre dinner - San Carlo Cicchetti.
