London Walks (2) : New Cavendish Street

After visiting Dickens Museum, I went back to Russell Square Station and got on the tube to Regent’s Park Station under some showers and cloudy weather. Here I caught up with my schedule to 96 New Cavendish Street to find that Wilkie Collins’s plaque. It was difficult for me to find under rain. I kept wandering into Weymouth Mews and Hallam Street, still not realising that I had to walk straight down the road to find New Cavendish Street instead of going into the alleys! After 1-2 hours I had found the Street as well as the plaque!

I stood before the plaque to my heart’s content and started my way near BBC headquarters.
