Our first day in London we walked about 6 miles. In the rain, of course!
The sun peeked through a couple times but it has been mostly gray. The city reminds me a little of Washington D.C. The architecture style is similar with not too many high rises.
We walked past Buckingham Palace and took lots of photos. Hope to see it again later today on a bus tour.
The most exciting part of the day yesterday was finding a Mini dealership. 🙂 It was right on the street just like a clothing shop.
More later after the tour…
And here is the tour bus. We did drive past Buckingham Palace again but didn’t stop there a second time. We did stop and see Trafalgar Square,
And Westminster Abbey.
Tips for eating out in London: DO expect to seat yourself most places. If you ask for water with your meal expect it to be tap water with no ice. If you order salad with your meal – expect to get it WITH your meal and not before. DO expect to have to ask for your bill after the meal. We are learning…
After Fish and Chips we decided to try and figure out how to catch a bus to Abbey Road. It turns out we were only about 2 1/2 miles away. AND they were OPEN – we thought. The gates were wide open and people were coming in and out, so we just walked right up to the door. We managed to get a few shots before they ran us off.
Now, it’s 1:00 a.m. and time for bed. Tomorrow we leave London and head for Plymouth.
