Anywhere in Europe will have more, or at least older, places to explore than Ontario. It would be nice to see them. More than nice but I can’t think of the right word at the moment.

Where would you start exploring if you were suddenly in London? I don’t know. I definitely need Katie’s book.

In my book, Abandoned London, experience these awe-inspiring ruins, humble former shops and pubs as well as factories and offices that have been left to rot.

Arranged thematically from transport to industry, residential to commercial, these entries cover both the modern city and the historical metropolis, from hidden reservoirs to deserted tram stations, from bombed-out churches and forgotten factories to ice wells and eerie docklands.

Maybe I’d start with old shops and ghost signs from shops. Also, I don’t know what an ice well is. The Tower of London and of course, London Bridge would be somewhere on my list, but those are not very forgotten. An old garden and neglected cemetery. Those would be places to find the things I like, old brickwork, and all the trimmings.
