Tips

Places to stop along the way

Any other places that interest you. Turn around and look behind you as you may see a better view.

Best time of day

Any time of day is fine, but no later than two hours before sunset, in order to avoid losing all daylight before finishing. The route is roughly 90 minutes when spending 10 minutes at each prescribed photography spot, but you might see things along the way that add another 30 minutes.

Precautions

Be aware of your surroundings and belongings, especially around tube stations.

This was fun to do. As a life long Londoner I really like having things I've missed pointed out to me. 2 issues - first this ISNT Bloomsbury. Bloomsbury is the area to the north of New Oxford St around (unsurprisingly) Bloomsbury Sq. This is St Giles Circus and Covent Garden. Secondly some of the GPS triggers need to be set ahead if and not at the location - esp. around Seven Dials.
