A walk around Fitzrovia and Regent's Park
A Saturday afternoon stroll from Oxford Circus to Regent's Park

London's a fantastic city for walking around, and you're never far from a hangover-curing riverside walk or a pleasant park to picnic in.
After grabbing lunch at the Photographers Gallery, we went for a short (4.8m) walk from Oxford Circus to Regent's Park and back. Here's a few photos.
We stopped off at the Getty Gallery in Fitzrovia to check out the excellent 'Londoners Through a Lens' exhibition.
Stuck in the middle of Cavendish Square is this empty plinth.
The original, lead-made equestrian statue of William, Duke of Cumberland (second son of George II), was placed on the plinth in 1770 but was removed in 1868 and the plinth has remained empty ever since (see what we got up up on Trafalgar Square's empty plinth!).
We passed what looked like a gang of tree buffs, studiously making notes.
Regent's Park has some beautifully tended flower beds and is a lovely place to take a stroll.
One of many fountains in the park.
A veritable cornucopia of colours!
Wedding photos in the rose gardens.
Yellow flowers with Telecom Tower in the distance.
Weeping willow over the lake.
Empty deck chairs.
Pedalos on the children's boating lake.
External church pulpit on the 1826 Holy Trinity church, Euston Road. The pulpit was erected in memory of the Reverend William Cadman in 1891.
Curious sign by Warren Street and Euston Road.
