We took a leaisurely stroll down Grey Street from the Monument to the Quay on a bright March Sunday morning. It was a really good time to admire the buildings and architecture and consider what they may have been in times past. Sunday morning meant that there was little traffic and not too many people to spoil the photographs.

Grey's Monument stands proudly at the top of this street which is full of beautiful buildings. It is home to the Theatre Royal and a number of bars and restaurants. Worth walking from the monument right down the bottom to the quayside.

A lot of nice architectural buildings, a pity that they are not cleaned up. There is quite some “dirt” on the outside walls.
