From there we followed a group of schoolkids in green uniforms as far as Trafalgar Square, down the Strand to Fleet Street, past the Law Courts, pausing for a coffee, then into the Courtauld Gallery. The bad part was that tghe second floor with the impressionists was closed until the afternoon but the good news was that entry was free. This is a beautiful small collection, well displayed in exquisitely decorated small rooms.
Plan B was to back track to Portsmouth Street to find the Old Curiosity Shop, made famous by Charles Dickens. This is an interesting building almost hidden away by the London School of Economics.
To get back to Paddington we used our Oyster Cards on the top deck of a No. 23 bus. This was much cheaper than the Hop-on, Hop-off tours and we saw a great deal:
Charing Cross, Trafalgar Square, Regent Street, Picadilly Circus, Regent Street Oxford Street, marble Arch and St. Mary's Hospital.
