Compare and Contrast: Tales from the Travel Guide

London by Tube
Christopher Winn

On the pleasures/strictures of Tyburn Convent:

Tyburn Convent is one of those places that make London such a uniquely fascinating city. Here, within spitting distance of London’s heaving shopping mecca of Oxford Street, and one of London’s busiest road junctions, is another world, a haven of peace and devotion where gentle nuns glide through quiet cloisters and contemplate in silence — how different from Speaker’s Corner, just across the road, where they never shut up.

I like how the passage places silence at the centre and surrounds it with the hurly-burly of the city.

And so for day 2451
