In Picadilly where Eros aims his bow into rain clouds...
... Hatchards is a cosy and welcoming refuge
its windows drawing you in irresistibly
to a warm, book-stuffed interior
Right next door is Fortnum's
with delicious windows set up for the new season
And across the road the Royal Academy
gives a glimpse through to the courtyard
and a newly opened exhibition
Back outside as an iconic red bus rumbles past
Richoux beckons for hot chocolate
Victorian Princes Arcade is a refuge from the rain
Sorry, did I suggest we might be going inside any of these places? No time, it's back to work...
