...And then we went to London!

Hmm. So I'd reached the grand old age of 47 and I'd never seen Buckingham Palace or any other of the London iconic buildings, despite us only living an hour away from London! So, we decided to have a tourist day. Very Picture heavy.

Trafalgar Square.

The Blue Cockeral... a gift from France apparently. It's very bright.

Along the Mall now, and Horse Guards Parade.
The wording above the arches reads...In the tenth year of king Edward vll to Queen Victoria from most grateful citizens. 1910

Buckingham Palace.

We had lunch in St James Park.

On the way to Downing Street.

The very impressive Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament.

The London Eye (only Justin and Matthew went on it)

The Shard.

Tower of London, Tower Bridge, and HMS Belfast.
