A few days in London

June 16th - June 20th, 2014

I went to Europe on a guided tour with my family and many strangers in the summer. We arrived in London a few days earlier so we stayed at a hotel for three days and ventured on our own before joining the group.

When we were on our own, we bought tickets for one of the big red buses (The Original London). Basically you pay a certain amount and you can ride a bus to tour London, and you can hop on/off at any time!

The London Eye seen from the Thames River cruise.

One of my favorite parts of London was Westminster Abbey. The architecture is amazing, and there's so much to see. Unfortunately, pictures weren't allowed inside. 

We went again when we joined the tour group but didn't have time to go inside again.

Buckingham Palace! 

Big Ben.

Tower of London.

Tower Bridge is probably the most beautiful bridge I've ever seen.

The two photos below were taken from our hotel window, which we stayed at for just one night with our tour. The view was absolutely beautiful, and it was also the best hotel we stayed at during the whole tour.

London was amazing but we definitely didn't stay long enough. I hope I can go sometime! :)
