Day 28 the No 52

After visiting the Metropolitan Archives for a talk and then taking my wife to the Duke of York's theatre I took a Bakerloo tube train to Baker street and then crossed through the tunnel to platform 10 to catch a Jubilee line train to Willesden Green. It was then quite a long walk from here to Willesden bus garage.

The No 52 lays over in the yard on the Southwest side of the bus garage and the starting bus stop for the route is exactly the same bus stop at which I had alighted from the No 6 in the Autumn.

The No 52 I caught left his bus stop at 1654 and was a very recently introduced Metroline number VWH2402.

The route is a mirror image of the No 6 at first before joining that route southeast of Willesden towards Kensal Rise. Heading south through Ladbroke Grove the routes part company and continues south through Notting Hill Gate and on to Kensington High Street. Beyond this it turns left to run towards the Royal Albert Hall and then to Knightsbridge, Hyde Park corner and finally to Victoria railway station where the bus arrived at 1752. Quite a quick journey given the time of day in Central London.
