Picture 1 of 32


My goodness. We really packed it in during our London Trip.

We rode around on a double-decker bus tour to get an overview of the city. Took a ferry up the Thames from Big Ben to the London Tower. The older kids saw Shakespeare’s Alls Well That Ends Well at the Globe Theatre. We rode the London Eye. Visited Big Ben. Got familiar with the London Underground. Saw Harry Potter at Leicester Square. Took Afternoon Tea at The Orangery at Kensington Palace. Went shopping on Regent Street. Swam at the hotel. Saw the Changing of the Guard at Buckingham Palace. Met up with our brother-in-law (and Shakespeare Professor), Bruce Young. Toured the Tower of London. Saw the White Cliffs of Dover. And walked through lots of rain! rain! rain!

Today, I thought I’d share some photos we took while we ran around town. Tomorrow, I’ll tell you about the Tower of London — it was right by our hotel!

P.S. — Note to self: next time, pack wellies.
