London, Day 1

This past weekend was yet again another 3-day weekend for Phillip (that is 3 in a row now!), so we headed over to London!! It was AMAZING!! There is so much to see and do there; so much so that I am splitting my posting into 2 days so that you can see more pictures of all we did.

We started Day 1 at the Tower of London. Of course you have to pay to go inside of anything, but it was well worth it here! Not only do you get to see the castle, but they also had lots of memorabilia displays, as well as the Crown Jewels!!

Here is Phillip outside the main entrance.

Rockin the audio tour! An extra charge, but at least then we knew what we were looking at. There were a total of 5 different tours, but we only made it through 3. Just that took us 2 hours!! My favorite part though was seeing the Crown Jewels! They are incredible, and you are allowed to view them right up close!

Tower Bridge. We would later go out on it.

Having Fish n' Chips and a Pint at the Dicken's Inn! Heard about this place from a guard at the Tower of London and it did not disappoint.

Parliament and Big Ben. We also went over and visited Westminster Abbey. Only got exterior pictures as it was getting late and things were starting to close down.

We also went over and visited the original Hard Rock Cafe'. We went inside the vault and saw all of the memorabilia, but we didn't stay to eat because the line was too long. Either way, the collection of items was worth seeing!
