London has always been on my travel bucket-list so visiting the sights had me grinning from ear-to-ear. We began our morning adventure outside Buckingham Palace to stare at the guards, but the crowds quickly had us retreating to our next stop – Big Ben!
After snapping a few photos with Big Ben and the London eye we grabbed lunch at Café Nero and ate on a set of steps over looking the river thames. Once refueled we walked down the road to Westminster Abbey. Being crunched for time, we were only able to oggle at the abbey’s beauty from the sidewalk. Next time we are in London we will have to book a few tours!
On our walk to the Tower of London I made Ian stop and take a few stereotypical photos – one in a phone booth and another next to a set of red buses. Yes, this was super touristy of me but can you blame a girl?!
Ian and I both agree that the Tower of London is at the top of our tour list next time we are in the city. We peered longingly through the gate entrance for a few minutes before we had to run back to our hotel and get on the train back to Edinburgh. Our time in London was short, but we felt we made the most of the time we had in the city.
Check back in tomorrow to see what we got up to in Edinburgh!
