I spot a cattle trough that has been converted into a flower bed.

I doubt that many Royals have been here.

After getting to the end of King’s Cross Road I reach King’s Cross St. Pancras underground station.

Outside Euston mainline station are a number of war memorials.

Soon after the Euston mainline station is one of the Euston Square underground station entrances.

Near Regent’s Park is Great Portland Street tube station.

Along the way to Baker Street is Regent’s Park Crescent and this tribute to Charles Dickens featuring some of the famous characters from his books.

I turn into Chapel Street and then arrive at the station. The Circle line Edgware Road station isn’t actually on Edgware Road – but the Bakerloo line Edgware Road station is. Perhaps TFL should rename this station to make it less confusing.

Edgware Road to Paddington

Along Praed Street you can see modern flats and traditional brick houses.

Just before getting to Paddington station I pass St. Mary’s Hospital.

Paddington to Bayswater

On the way to Bayswater are colourful houses as well as the stucco fronted houses that are common in Lancaster Gate.

I spot this NYPD car which seems to have got lost and ended up in the wrong continent.

I turn onto the Queensway and pass the Whiteleys shopping centre before reaching Bayswater underground station. This is the end point of my Circle line walk and as it happens it was also the start point.
