Our day in London was jam-packed with attractions. We started off with a visit to Buckingham Palace, and to our delight, we had arrived 15 minutes before the Changing of the Guard! It was like nothing we had ever seen.
Walking through St. James Park and by 10 Downing Street (the Prime Minister's residence), we arrived at the House of Parliament. Not only did we see the beautiful interior halls of the historical building , but we were permitted to watch the proceedings in both the House of Commons and House of Lords.
Westminster Abbey is just across the way and touring the historical church is an amazing experience. Many former kings and queens are buried there, and almost all have been coronated there.
We finished the day with stops by St. Paul's Church, Trafalgar Square, and the National Gallery of Art before an evening of pub-hopping.
