|Big Ben and The Parliament Building|
I don't like cities at all. I prefer the country side where it's quiet and more laid back, but London was something else! I now have a favorite city! We flew into London in the late afternoon and spent most of the evening trying to find our hostel and find somewhere to eat after our journey. The next day started early at 8am! We started off by taking a guided tour bus through London to get an idea of where everything was! I was in disbelief that was in London, especially when I saw Big Ben, the Parliament Building, and Westminster Abbey! For lunch we stopped at the Sherlock Holmes Pub and enjoyed fish and chips! Later we saw a museum, traveled more on the bus, and then took a cruise from Big Ben to the Tower of London down the Thames River!
|Guard at Buckingham Palace|
The next day we took a trip down to see Buckingham Palace and saw the changing of the guards! I've never seen anything like it! It was this long drawn out process, but they had a marching band playing, the guards marching down the street and into the palace gates! I was right outside the gate so I had one of the best views! After the changing of the guard, we walked around Big Ben and the Parliament Building to get a better view especially since it was sunny out!
