And Finally London!

Next day was our trip into London! We took the train in from Windsor and it took about an hour with way too many stops. This added 2 hours of traveling into the day we were not expecting.
However, when we arrived and walked onto the bridge and saw the city it was quite amazing.

There is so much to do and you really need about a week if you are wanting to see everything or as much as possible. So with only a day planned we mapped out a walk that took us to all the sights we really wanted to see.
Big Ben~

Trafalgar Square, which was one of my favorite places. We were surprised how much freedom they gave everyone to climb all over the statues and sculptures outside the National Gallery.

Most of the museums are free in London but again, you need a lot of time.
At the National gallery we saw paintings by Picasso, Di Vinci, Rembrandt, Monet, and many others that I had never heard of :)

Buckingham Palace

The London Eye

House of Parliament, with protesters camped out on the lawn out front.

West Minister Abby

The National Horse Guard

St. James Park, where we had a picnic lunch.

After a long day visiting the city of London, we headed back to the train for the ride back to Windsor.
It would have been nice to see some more of the museums and go to a show, but we both felt we were able to see enough for the first visit!
