Day 15 of our trip and Day 6 in London. We had 2 day left in London.
The next two days we spent utilizing the London Pass we had purchased before leaving the states. We chose the 2 day pass which gave us entry into several attractions and it allowed us to skip some lines.
We started the day making our way to Westminster Abbey and spent some time touring the beautiful church.
From Westminster we got on a Bus to St. Paul’s. We made it a quick stop and didn’t stay long.
From St. Paul’s, we walked across the Millennium Bridge and enjoyed the views overlooking the Thames. We were thankful for a beautiful day.
We tried to go to Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre (included in the pass), but it was closed to the public for a private event. Whoops. So, we walked to the Tower of London from there. We made sure to participate in the Yeowman Warders Tour (commonly known as Beefeaters), well worth the time spent, but you could also choose to walk around on your own. The tours usually start every 30 minutes and last about an hour. We were entertained with stories and jokes throughout the tour and really enjoyed learning all the history.
There are good views of Tower Bridge from inside the Tower of London. There were rooms filled with multitudes of armor and weapons. My favorite part was the tour through the Crown Jewels. You’re not allowed to take pictures, but the jewelry and crowns were unreal.
Look at the size of the Ravens! They are well taken care of.
From the Tower of London, We walked in the direction of Tower Bridge and walked across. This site was the end to our day. The next day was Day 2 with the London pass.
