One of the most common mistakes a tourist will make is to confuse Tower Bridge with London Bridge. I made such a mistake, but thank goodness for learning from Google in the comfort of my blankets.
London: Old Spitalfields Market
I started writing this post thinking that I could somehow figure out how to explore and explain London’s area guides sequentially but I GIVE UP THEIR NAMING SYSTEM IS MAD.
