London

Quick update - we left Spain on Sunday evening and arrived in England for a few weeks stay.
Today we joined the crowds on public transport and caught a train from Gatwick to Victoria Station. We then changed to the Victoria underground line for our journey to Darren's family in East London.
Non of it was very scenic, but all of the stations on the Victoria line feature original tiled decorative panels.
I am posing next to Queen Victoria's head at the start of our journey, and we tried to spot the tiles at the stations along the route.  We missed a few, but we went through Warren Street station and saw a maze, the Blackhorse Road motif was obvious, but Seven Sisters was not as expected and appeared to be seven trees.
Our final destination of Walthamstow showed a wallpaper design by William Morris who was born in Walthamstow in 1834.
