We started the day off in Trafalgar Square. St. Martin-in-the-Fields is being renovated. You can see the scaffolding in some of the shots. They also had funny pictures of the church members in hard hats.
We tried to do the Original London Bus Tour today, but none of the buses came by. So instead, we walked down to the Banqueting House (another of the Historic Royal Palaces). Fantastic! It was really an awe inspiring place. After that, we walked to Westminster Abbey to do the tour.
Last time we were in London, we found George Washington in Trafalgar Square. This time, we found Abraham Lincoln in Westminster.
We took the Tube to Harrods for some shopping. We went back to the hotel for a while, and then that evening, went to the Ceremony of the Keys at the Tower of London. This was an amazing experience, if you are going to London, write ahead and get your tickets. When you exit the tube station, you can see some of the original Roman wall.
We got some great shots of the Tower at night.
They had an ice skating rink set up in the moat.
We also got some general shots of the area while we were waiting on the ceremony.
