London was by far, hands down, my favourite place in England. If you’ve been you understand. If you haven’t been yet please don’t write it off as being another “big” city. It’s so unique, so beautiful, so historical and incredibly easy to navigate.
Best time of day to see Buckingham Palace? Early morning, there was literally no one else there. I wasn’t as impressed as I thought I would be but it’s worth seeing. Green Park which runs alongside the Palace and Hyde Park are gorgeous and worth strolling through.
I was there about a week before the Olympics started so all throughout the city were these things, the mascot of the games, and each were painted in a different motif.
There are so many landmarks to see in London and most offer paid tours if that interests you. Westminster Abbey is the most breathtaking piece of Gothic Architecture I’ve ever seen. And it’s massive, I couldn’t fit it into one frame, this is one of the best shots I took.
Big Ben and the Parliament Buildings were amazing to see. Trafalgar Square (the Canadian Embassy is also right there) was bustling, there was to be a huge outdoor concert there the next night.
Next, I’ll show you where my favourite part of London is…
