Travel: London – part 1

Oh what a dynamic and vibrant city London is, with plentiful to see and do that I have to recap in three posts. Today’s part is about getting around main tourist attractions.

bustling street + red double-decker buses

Tower Bridge over The Thames

Canada Gates – I had to show you this exquisitely detailed entrance gates to Green Park, situated right across from The Buckingham Palace.

Buckingham Palace is the Queen’s official residence and has been the official London residence of Britain’s sovereign since 1837.

Tickle-me-don’t smiley if you would like to watch the changing guard military tradition, you can do so by getting to the gates at 11.30am every day in the summer and every other day in the winter.

Nelson’s Column in Trafalgar Square. The National Gallery which houses great arts from Leonardo da Vinci to Van Gogh is also here. I nearly forgot to mention that access is FREE.

The ‘Tube’ is London’s underground rail network. It is the quickest and easiest method of travelling around.

Westminster Abbey. This 700-years-old gothic church is precious to British history as it is where many royal ceremonies, including the marriage of Prince William and Kate Middleton, took place.

Palace of Westminster aka Parliament House.

Big Ben is the name of the bell in the Elizabeth Clock Tower.

London Eye is the tallest Ferris wheel in Europe. A 30-minute ride for an adult starts at £17

This cool truck drove past just in time for this shot! Good night London, see you in part 2 & 3
