    Depends where on Borough High Street, it's quite long :-)

    Two to three miles - you should have plenty of time as long as you don't get lost.

    Its a good hours walk but a good one. Lunch and a drink in Borough Market. Great food to be had there but not cheap (it is London)Or a drink in the George Inn, one of the oldest pubs around

    A couple of minutes away is the Shard - you cant miss it. There's a viewing platform on one of the higher floors but I'm told its very expensive.

    Oh and mind the roads at both Victoria and London Bridge, there is a lot of construction work going on

    Thanks for taking the trouble to post that. It could help me In the near future. I have a new smart phone and I'm serious, I haven't worked It out yet. Yesterday, my husband bought me a brand new Notebook Windows 8... No doubt that will be months before I get around It.

    Well everything went very well today. I am flat to the boards. Just 3 hours sleep last night and had to get up at dawn this morning and not been home long.
    Getting to Victoria coach station, I was parched so decided to have a cuppa before finding a cab. I went In one of those trendy continental cafe's. In there, I had one of the most bizzarre, strange experiences I have ever had In my life. I'm no shrinking violet but It could have been quite disturbing to some. If anyone cares enough, I'll write a brief version.

    Got a cab straight after that and It wasn't that far. Took about 20 minutes I'd say In heavy traffic. Great venue, great hospitality, lunch and drinks provided.
    Hailed a Hackney In the street right outside the venue, had a right crack with a lovely cheeky cockney. Coach trip home was a dream. But sooo tired now,... Back to East London tomorrow.
