Bird's-eye View from the 15th Floor



This post is for Six Word Saturday where you describe your life in six words- don't you just love the little hyphen, making one word :-) .  You can then elaborate if you wish and seeing as I like words and can use thousands instead of 10 or 6, I have elaborated. I decided to share some pics from last Sunday when we had a family get together in Chelsea. I would've loved to have visited more of the places I knew so well as a child but once the photo albums come out, there's just not enough time. 


Birds-eye View from the 15th Floor




Ok, not quite a bird's-eye view but as close as you'll get without flying into Heathrow. Standing on my Aunt's balcony, last Sunday, on the 15th floor on the iconic World's End estate in Chelsea, SW10, you can see right across London. In the distance is the Wembley Arch, below, the streets of Chelsea.

I used to stand on this balcony as a child and that excitement of the view has not diminished even though the views have changed.





But one thing has never changed and that's seeing Chelsea football stadium, Stamford Bridge, from the balcony on the 15th floor.

            


Turn in another direction, you can see The Royal Albert Hall (bit blurred that one). Then in another direction, you can see across the Thames to Battersea in 'Sarrrf' London.

I love visiting London. And will never tire of it; the buzz, the noise, the excitement, and especially those places that mean so much and were a huge part of my childhood, like the 15th floor on the World's End estate.

  1. There is something fascinating about good views over cities. I was very pleased with myself having spotted the Wembley arch in your first photo before you told us! :)

  2. Tall buildings; yet another great way to get high. I'd hafta drive almost two hours to find anything 15 storeys high.

  3. A pair of binoculars and you could watch Chelsea for free- if you were that way minded! :) Nice to meet you, Lizzie.

    1. Oh yes, most definitely that way inclined; Chelsea is the family team seeing as right on its doorstep. x

  4. I've got a high balcony, but all I can see is the horizon and a boat or two!

  5. I used to envy the folks whose homes allowed them to watch test match cricket at the Oval! Londoner born and bred, I'm happier in the country nowadays.
