Having finished Shirley’s Trail outside Tate Modern, we undertook a walk along the south bank of the Thames to the London Eye. This was the only trail we undertook in the recommended order.
So to the first Shaun. The App indicated that Ewe-nion Jack was in the gardens, however it is not. It is on the main pathway away from the Thames and London Eye.
Instead of retracing our steps along the bank of the Thames, when headed to the British Film Institute (BFI) along Belvedere Road.
From the BFI we took the steps onto Waterloo Bridge and crossed the Thames to Somerset House.
From Somerset House, the next two Shauns are in Covent Garden, so crossing The Strand we headed into Theatreland, past the Lyceum Theatre and along Wellington Street. At the Royal Opera House we turned into Russell Street to enter Covent Garden from the east.
Walking the the market area to the west side of Covent Garden we arrived at the Shaun in the City stall, before heading to the next Shaun in a very crowded West Piazza.
The last two Shauns in Timmy’s Trail are north of Covent Garden, with the penultimate one in St Martin’s Courtyard.
And so to the final Shaun in Timmy’s Trail and a Cathy Kidston creation in Earlham Street.
It took us around 50 minutes to complete Timmy’s Trail, against the target time of 35 minutes for the 3km.
We then headed to Trafalgar Square for something to eat prior to tackling the Shaun’s Trail – the final Shaun in the City trail in London.
