Iconic Sites of London

Tower Bridge on the River Thames, a drizzly day that showcases the beautiful blue and gold highlights on the bridge.  Hop on the river cruise to really appreciate the view.

1566

 

Elizabeth Tower (you probably know it as Big Ben) and the Houses of Parliament, a beautiful building to appreciate from all view points.  Daytime, nighttime, any weather conditions you can spend hours taking in the details on this building.

Westminster Abbey on Remembrance Day.  A time to appreciate all the fallen soldiers that gave their lives for the freedom we enjoy today.  Never forget.

1602

 

Buckingham Palace the official home of the British Monarch.  We didn’t have a chance to tour the palace, when we are in London again it will be on the list.  We did watch the Changing of the Guard.

A quaint alleyway with small shops.  What caught our eye was the man in the top hat and overcoat cape.

A different view of the British Museum, the architecture reminds me of something in a James Bond movie.

1653

 

A Royal Horse Guard.  The bright red uniform stands out against the surroundings.

The London Eye, the giant Ferris wheel in the background.  As the weather wasn’t particularly good that day we decided not to venture onto the London Eye.

1717

 

Regent Street is one of the wonderful streets to shop along in London.
