Wellington Hotel, Lambeth (Waterloo), London   Leave a comment

We were heading off to a Thai place on Lower Marsh but decided to stop in the Wellington for an apéritif. The house was rammed — just after 6 pm on a Friday, and just across from Waterloo Station, so no surprise there — but we were able to find a small table at the far southwest corner of the pub. Unfortunately, we only found one chair but I was able to convince some guys at a nearby table to render the one they were using as a coat and bag rack and we took our seats. Less than five minutes later, a 3-spot in the window buggered off and we returned the borrowed chair and took up residence in the nicer neighbourhood.

This part of town is, surprisingly, devoid of tourists but the people watching is no less eclectic. Lots of street people (I think the modern term is ‘homeless’), and not nearly as many suits as on the other side of the river. The sunset lingered over the rail station and cast a pink and orange glow on everything this last weekday before the clocks spin forward for British Summer Time.

Map, here.
