Rich in it’s multicultural diversity and history. Oh the history of the place was fascinating. So much history - the events, the dates, the times, the influences they have today because of their history, so much to absorb in such little time.
I was a little overwhelmed but I was determined to take in every moment.
We did the typical tourist stuff – London Eye, Big Ben, Madame Tussaud’s, British Museum, the Changing of the Guard at Buckingham Palace, Windsor Castle, St. George Chapel at Windsor castle (sorry no photo’s-not allowed), and Stone Henge. Oh I nearly forgot - the Roman Baths. I never knew that the Romans travelled there and settled. It was amazing to see the bath and how it was constructed. And the water from the bath – uggh it looked filthy. Apparently it’s the same water since back in the day!!
I know for certain there is so much more to do and so I hope to go back there again one day. I would have loved to see more museums, maybe an art gallery or 2 but I thought it would be pushing it a little with a very excited and hyperactive 2 year old.
I have more photo’s but I won’t be posting them here, but if you are interested you can find them over at my other blog. I should maybe open a flickr account but don’t feel like it right now!
I loved London and I really do hope to go back.
