Brilliant, used to go to Hornimans a lot when I lived in London. Now in Brighton simply had not registered it is a stones throw from London Bridge, they have great summer events too. Lovely post lovely pics. x
Having awarded ourselves some days off the question was where to go?
Firstly we went for a hike in the beautiful Surrey Hills to Leith Hill tower, a folly built in the 18th Century which adds the missing 64ft to Leith Hill to make it a mountain, 1,000ft above sea level. We love eccentricity and apparently the landowner/builder was buried underneath his gothic edifice. The base of the tower is a tiny café – just a hatch in the wall serving coffee and cakes – and usually there are a few walkers munching and slurping as reward for the short climb. Others must have had the same post-Christmas exercise idea and the top (sorry, the summit!) was busier than usual with folk on horses, dogs taken for walkies and lots of good-natured chat. It was too misty to see the thirteen counties you can view on a clear day…
