Although the Elizabeth Line has been open for some months, Bond Street station didn't open until today. And while we were on holiday, the new link between the DLR and the Northern Line at Bank opened, as did Battersea Power Station (which every Jodi Taylor fan knows is the Time Police HQ) and, I believe, a knew entrance to Knightsbridge station.
We do plan to go to Battersea Power Station very soon - it's a direct bus ride from here - but today was about the first two of these. We started off by getting a bus to King's College Hospital where a friend is currently incarcerated after a fall. After visiting her, we took another bus up to Elephant and Castle, and caught the Northern Line (neither of us has used this station before, as far as we are aware) to Bank, where we eventually found the rather shiny new escalators down to the DLR. As we wanted to go on the Elizabeth Line, we took the DLR as far as Canary Wharf, and enjoyed seeing the Elizabeth Line station there, which apparently has roof gardens, which I decided not to bother visiting.
The Elizabeth Line duly took us to Bond Street, where we admired the huge new station,
and then came out and had a snack in Prets. I had their Chocolate Moose (sic) which I don't think I've had for nearly 20 years and every bit as delicious as I remember it! And then just a short walk to Oxford Circus, where we got a Victoria Line train home. At least, I did a bit of shopping, and the Swan Whisperer went off to do something else. And so home.
