It was time to leave Ealing and head home. Before leaving I decided to go for a walk up to see the Hoover Building, as it was such a lovely morning. The Hoover Building opened in 1933 and is Art Deco in style. I’ve seen it from the car many times, so thought I’d go and take a proper look. It’s a gorgeous building, which has now been developed into luxury apartments – the smaller building, which was also part of Hoover, is now an Indian restaurant. After my walk we headed towards home, stopping on the way at Walton-on-Thames, which is a market town in Surrey close to the Thames. We didn’t have time to explore – we had a bite to eat, and visited Waterstones which is in a modern shopping centre. With its pale shelving and high ceilings, it has a nice light and airy feeling.
