It came as something of a shock! Having a bit of spare time between meetings I wanted to see something outside the National Gallery on the edge of the Company Gardens.

Well kept gardens with an interesting history. Nice place to take a picnic for lunch, perhaps purchased in Greenmarket Square food lovers hall.
