    History
    Scotland Yard (officially New Scotland Yard) is a metonym for the headquarters of the Metropolitan Police Service, the territorial police force responsible for policing most of London.

    The name derives from the location of the original Metropolitan Police headquarters at 4 Whitehall Place, which had a rear entrance on a street called Great Scotland Yard. The Scotland Yard entrance became the public entrance to the police station, and over time the street and the Metropolitan Police became synonymous. The New York Times wrote in 1964 that just as Wall Street gave its name to New York's financial district, Scotland Yard became the name for police activity in London.

    The force moved away from Great Scotland Yard in 1890, and the name New Scotland Yard was adopted for the subsequent headquarters. The current New Scotland Yard is located on Broadway in Victoria and has been the Metropolitan Police's headquarters since 1967. In summer 2013, it was announced that the force would move back to the former site of Scotland Yard, the Curtis Green Building, which is located on the Victoria Embankment and the headquarters will be renamed Scotland Yard.

    The Explore
    Visited with @Porker of the night , @The_Raw and @Maniac . I kindly received a message from TheRaw and Maniac asking if we wanted to jump on the band wagon to London to check out a certain rooftop. First stop was a lovely cold pint in the pub. Time to set off, when arriving I certainly did have a smile on my face, access was a laugh to say the least. Once at the top the view certainly didn't disappoint! I don't head up to London much so this was a special moment indeed.

    Heading out wasn't as stealthy with a couple of us stacking it across the road on the way out o_O

    On to the pictures.
