A short wander around Horniman Gardens, Forest Hill, London

Only a brief post today, but hopefully the few pictures make up for the lack in quantity. I had the opportunity to venture south of the river last week, and actually quite far south, to a part of London where I'm pretty sure I've never been to before, Forest Hill, The purpose of the visit was to go to the Horniman Museum, but I did manage to find a little time for some wandering.

As we left the Overground train station, I caught sight of a couple of ghost signs, but alas they would have to wait for another day. What particularly struck me about this part of London was the sheer abundance of parks and other green spaces. These three pictures are all taken in Horniman Gardens, looking back towards London.

We did walk down through the gardens into Dulwich, but as you can see from the last photo the day was beginning to close, so unfortunately no pictures of that part of the wander. Another time perhaps.
