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.
