London. When the “happy hour” stopped.

It was the first Monday since the pubs and other venues for social gathering have been ordered to close temporarily due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

While on my way home from work (I work for the NHS), I decided to get off the bus, and walked from Picadilly Circus to Waterloo Station at 8 pm.

Here are some of the photos that I have taken from my phone.

Even the longest running musical at the West End has to temporarily shut.
Almost everything is closed in China Town.
The Statue of Eros, one of the most popular meeting place in London is almost empty.
Leicester Square with the police on patrol. No we are not in the total lockdowm… Yet?
A touching photo of a busker and just one touris at Leicester Square.
Empty Trafalgar Square except for a few homeless people.
The fountains are off in front of the National Gallery
A closed pub.
Inside the pub.
This is how Londoners talk to each other now.
You can count the people at the usually very busy Waterloo Station
I passed by three tourists at the Jubilee bridge.
Deserted Southbank
Both side of the river bank was full of people during the new years eve but now it’s empty.
When this is all over… Let’s meet during the happy hour again
