Next we travelled along a wall, over another set of steps, along another wall,
over some porta-loos and onto the side of the cabinet office. This luckily was
built rather like a ladder with excellent hand and foot grooves. Eventually
we made it round to our first port of call with a view to Trafalgar Sq. Learning
about hidden treasure and the smallest police station in the world, we then
held our breath and dashed through Admiralty Arch and back to the flowerbeds.
Taking a different course we jumped up onto a wall that ran up the side of
some steps, climbed along some railings and around into Carlton Terrace. Here
we swung along ralings, doorsteps and fences until we made it around to Waterloo
Place, the second stop on our tour.
Home to statues of famous adventurers Robert Falcon Scott (antarctic explorer) and John Franklin (Discoverer of the North West Passage). This road also has a gravestone to Hitler's ambassadors dog, Giro.
We then climbed along a wall, held our breath and crossed the
road to come to the The Reform Club 104-105 Pall Mall. This is the site where
Philieas Fogg made the fateful bet to travel around the world in 80 days!
Pall Mall is home to a large number of gentlemans clubs, all of which seem to have the same scary architecture to climb on. This consists of a pillored wall next to the pavement with a massive drop on the other side and the building set back about 3m. Creating a kind of moat effect between the posh clubs and the general public. Unfortunately for us this meant balancing on the top of the wall with the pavement on one side and a drop of doom on the other. However we all held our nerve and travelled on in true adventurer style.
