|THE ST PANCRAS STATION FLORAL CHRISTMAS TREE|
Above and below is the rather impressive floral festive tree that
stands on display in St Pancras International Station.
The 47ft tree was designed by luxury florists Moyses and features
roses, petals and pine cones instead of string lights.
The tree will stay up until January 3rd.
Below: The John Betjeman Statue as well as The Lovers Statue.
|Now here's a festive novelty. A private Vintage Bus Company is running a free vintage|
bus ride service in the Capital on Christmas Day.
With all of London's buses taking the day off for the holidays, a 1950's RT double
decker will ply part of the 430 route, from Putney Bridge to Roehampton.
Running from 9.00 am to 4.00 pm, the route terminates at Danebury Avenue in
Roehampton Village, close to a community centre which is hosting a free lunch
and dinner for those who would otherwise be spending Christmas Day on their own.
I do miss the old Routmasters even though one or two still run around the Capital,
but just not in my part of town. The current crop of new London buses still seem to
be having problems with their stop and start quick breaking. And any older passengers
navigating their way to a seat might just endure a touch of whiplash when these
new buses slap on those rapid breaks.
For more information on the Christmas Day Vintage Bus visit their website at....

Below: Yet another London Bus novelty tour that takes in the sites
around the Capital while you tuck in to tea and cakes, but at quite
a hefty price.
LONDON BUS AFTERNOON TEA TOUR
Below: There's even a special holiday Bus tour around some of the
capital's festive sights taking in the street lights and many
of the decorated Stores.
