I used the last of my holiday leftover days yesterday.
I toured North London starting at Alexandra Palace. I was disappointed that the BBC tower was cover in scafolding so you cant see much. I had forgotten how many hills there are in this part of the city. It seemed that the buses didn't line up, so I had to take some strange routes to go west.
Here is a view from Alexandra Palace down to the City and on the right is the Shard beginning to take shape.
And a view of the huge Olympic rings at St. Pancras International.
