    London Day 2

    September 12, 2018 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ⛅ 14 °C

    It’s our first time in London so we are checking out all of the iconic places and one or two less so. Today we started at Buckingham Palace and used the London Underground with our first experience of the Tube station and were impressed and with the buses. We got off at St James Park and that was a lovely walk to the palace. Watching the changing of the guard was too “touristy” for my liking and we moved onto Westminster Abbey. We were debating about which was more impressive Notre Dame in Paris or Westminster and I’ll reserve my judgment till we arrive in Paris again soon but I’d say Westminster. Then we did some walking past Churchill War Rooms and headed down Fleet Street had lunch at a pub and then to St Paul’s cathedral- that’s impressive also. Lots of wonderful buildings mixed in with some modern. We headed home on the underground Bank station for the big event watching the Lion King on London’s West End. That was a fantastic show and experience.Read more
