Only 1 walker was there on time, but 4 others trickled in within a few minutes, ie n=5 on a w=warm-for-the-time-of-year evening, with clear skies and no wind.
We walked for a bit more than an hour through Hyde, Green and St. James's Parks, which were all near deserted, so quite eerie to walk through, and with lots of the grand buildings surrounding the parks well lit and providing for some fine scenery, to end on Whitehall, where the first pub was closed, the second one had all in-service tables occupied, but the third one (The Old Shades, a Young's pub) had tables available. So we enjoyed a meal and a few drinks. 2 then walked on to London Bridge/home.
