Surfmom,
Loving your report and especially your photos. Where is the beautiful bar in your collection of Hairy Goat photos? We will go to London in June, so reading with interest!
Thanks,
P

I love St. Clement Danes! Idle googling led me to this - I thought this was a pretty cool link to have for the next trip.

@oduncan - yes, St. Clement's Danes is correct. those are the details that I immediately lost, but I loved that little chapel!

@309 - the bar is The Counting House. We ended up for a meal there the following day and it was very good! They are on Cornhill in 'the City' (financial district). I've lost my distances a little, but I think it is relatively close to St. Paul's. I would eat there again.

here is information:

@flygirl - thanks for the link. Fun to look at and realize how many of those cool statues I saw.

@see. yes, the Gherkin is a big pickle... or in this case, a large building in London. below is a photo.

St Clement Danes is the St Clements of the nursery rhyme "Oranges and lemons, say the bells of St Clement's".
