The crown jewels were great but it was the buildings themselves that blew us away the most. So much history. Extraordinary. I didn't think I'd be so moved by being in the spot where, for example, Anne Boleyn was executed. The inscription and poem on that memorial was a treat - I wish i'd taken a note of the words on that...
Ok, so after that we moved onto Tower Bridge - again I missed getting photos but that was great too. The machinery that runs, or used to run the bridge, was terrific.
Then, onto Westminster Abbey. Damn. It closed 10 minutes before we got there! Nevermind. We sat outside for a while and just enjoyed the outside of the building. Oh and I did remember to get a photo here!
So we then moved onto Buckingham Palace after getting a little lost, and took a few photos there.
And now we are back at the hotel. I thought I'd take a couple of shots to show what our view is like.
Hmm. Maybe they don't show off the view so well but it's all the iPhone will do! :-)
We are packed and ready for an early morning start at 5am tomorrow! Off to Paris via the Eurostar! Woohoo! Only one down side to today; no really useful box...
Much love to all,
Mick and Liv
