Talking of the London underground I just want to tell you about the London Transport Museum here in London. The museum is undergoing major refurbishments at the moment but failing that there is the depot out to the west of London in Acton that has open weekends. I have been along to this and my son was thrilled to see very old trains dating back to the turn of the century and even old buses too. On the open weekends there are many activities going on to suit young and old alike. Check the website for details of the open days!

The problem I have is a case of missing statues. There used to be on the front of the building some beautiful statues standing very proud looking out at London. Where are they now? Gone! I only hope that as this is a grade 2 listed building the statues are somewhere being restored and will soon be back in place looking wonderful!

The whole area has become very trendy indeed despite being rather run down in some parts to being so upbeat in others. It is also Jack the Ripper territory but that is another story in itself. The whole area was originally a Jewish area and now that seems to have changed and favoured by Bangladesh families hence the wonderful food on sale!
I am now dribbling at the thought of a salt beef beigal and might just have to jump in the car and drive over there!
