 A morning trip to the East India Docks by DLR to listen to a music piece composed to play for 1000 years non-stop.
The Longplayer has been going on for 13 years and 233 days when we were there.

This is the light house at Trinity Buoy Wharf  where the music is playing - one of the London's secrets.

The wharf is extremely quiet - with old warehouses are making ways for these quirky boxes.

From the wharf, a good view of the business district at Canary Wharf.

And the Millennium Dome - where people were seen climbing on top - like the Sydney Harbour Bridge.

 First time for me taking a river cruise on the Thames starting from the Eye Pier and ending at Greenwich.
 On one of these Thames Clippers
 passing by the iconic buildings of London
 The Shard at London Bridge -a 87-storey glass skyscraper completed in 2012 and
presently the tallest building in the EU. 
Quite a few high rise buildings under development are seen sprouting up among the old low rise chimney buildings in central London

The changing skyline - from Toby's flat in Greenwich

View from Greenwich Park

Besides these outdoor locations,  the art places - Royal Academy of Arts where the summer exhibition was on, National Portraits Gallery and Tate Britain is part and parcel of our round in London. 
A new Turner Gallery was open at the Tate. 
Another place we visited this time was the Sutton House at Hackney - a tudor house built by a courier of Henry VIII in the 16th century.
