We took the Tube to the South Kensington stop and came up right by Big Ben. Our hotel was right across the River Thames looking at Big Ben.
The first get off stop was Saint Paul's Cathedral where Lady Di and Charles were married. They wanted 18 pounds about $30.00 to just go inside, we said pass.
Aaron and I got this birds eye view of the Tower Bridge as we went over. Everyone knows London Bridge from the nursery rhyme but this is THE bridge in London.
|Dr. Nat is trying to get the Queens guard to notice her, but he stood very still. They also have a huge armor museum which we liked.|
The Beef Eater told the ladies to leave their gloves on when you look at all the Queens jewels and crown because it would make this guy look like a cheap skate. Know kidding the diamond in the crown was probably 3 inches square with tons of rubies, pearls and more diamonds.
Westminster Abbey is the most historic Church in England dated from 1065. So many famous people are buried at Westminster - monarchs, politicians, scientists, artists, and so many literary giants. I'm not sure why they like to bury their dead in a Church, I think it is a little creepy.
They actually still have working telephone booths. These were the first ones we saw so we took lots of pictures. Our hotel was super nice and we slept pretty hard the first night catching up and trying to get our sleep on there time.
