house in Bermondsey, London

A couple of weeks ago, I joined up with The London Brunch Club Instameet group for the second time, for a stroll through part of Bermondsey, near London Bridge.

I was expecting more of a “rough and ready” London, so I was surprised by how trendy and pretty the area is. I suppose the whole of central London has been “gentrified” by now…

We had lots of fun taking photos of other people in the group in front of buildings that matched their clothing (#WhenPeopleMatchPlaces), and at the end of the walk I filmed a group “jump” in the cloistered walk at Guy’s Hospital (above) which was hilarious – I can’t wait for the next meet up!

  1. Hi Julia,
    I’ve just been enjoying catching up with your posts in a boxset-like binge after a spell offline. (Family death with domino effects.) I just wanted to say, yet again, that you’ve given me a great gift; I can now see why people love London so much. Your focus on the details, the inviting cafés, the architecture, the life of it all – and oh, that wisteria draped window and gorgeous front door! – have made me feel like a happy tourist who hasn’t had to pay a fortune or collapse in a hotel room at the end of long, traipsy days!

    Hi Janice
    Apologies for taking so long to reply to your comment – like you, I’ve been off-line a lot lately.
    So sorry to hear of your bereavement. I hope you’re OK.
    I’m so glad you’re enjoying the videos – I’m enjoying discovering London myself, after more than thirty years of living here!
