Queens Pub.

One of the oldest buildings in Oslo. Converted into a pub by a friend of mine who hails from Ipswich. Good pool table, so I'm here almost every friday!

Akershus fort.

This view towards Oslo centre from 'Hovedøya', a small island in Oslo fjord. The Island , once settled by Scottish monks is now protected but can be reached by a three minute ferry ride. The fort is the burial place for Norwegian kings, and also contains the Armed forces and resistance museums.

Stortorvet, central-east. The older building at the centre of the picture is a pub called 'Stortorget Gjæstgiveri'. A mecca for jazz enthusiasts and with a cosy backgarden in summer.
