24 BUS HAMPSTEAD HEATH TO TOTTENHAM COURT ROAD London Bus top deck Camden tour



Just realised... this whole journey is in the London Borough of Camden.
Took a 24 bus from Waterloo station all the way along the route to Hampstead Heath... with my retired London taxi driver Dad.
I grew up in Camden, and we drive past all the places we remember.
Funny looking at it now, as it was shot a few days before The Great Shutdown of 2020.
