Big Ben and Westminster Abbey

A very good Saturday to you! Today is my cousin Kate’s wedding so my whole family will be there! It’s about a two hour drive and we are going to head out around 10:00. I spoke to Michael yesterday and he is headed to a strawberry and flower festival today, sounds like fun! Yesterday Brian and I wandered around London again. We took the train in from my cousins, about an hour to get in. Stopped at my Uncle’s and then set off. I have taken loads of pictures and these ones are from Thursday. After we got off of the London Eye we walked past Big Ben…

Love the fact that I got the bus and the guy with the Union Jack sweatshirt in the picture! LOL!

Next up we went past Westminster Abbey…

It really is amazing when you think how long all of these landmarks have been there! Next up is Trafalgar Square, a much smaller version of Times Square!

We have been fortunate with the weather so far. It has rained just a little bit at night and been overcast with little peeks of sun from time to time during the day. I’ll have more pictures for you tomorrow, now I’d better go and get ready for the wedding! Have a super Saturday my friends! πŸ™‚

  1. Justin,
    Thanks for sharing your photos. London looks lovely. No naked painted ladies there as in Times Square.
    A wedding in England sounds like lots of fun. Hope you post some pics of it.
    Enjoy!

  2. Hey Justin, looks like you’re having a great time – love the photos! Trafalgar Square looks a little sad compared to Times Square huh!?! No naked cowboy either? Hope you enjoyed the wedding too! XOXO πŸ˜€

  3. Justin, I’m so jealous! But, I am enjoying “travelling” along with you through your pics! Have a great time, and keep those pictures coming!

  4. I’m sorry Justin, but this looks more like Piccidilly Circus. Trafalgar Square has a a fountain and a huge statue like thing with lions around it.

  5. Oh my gosh Justin! Did you go inside Westminster Abbey? Isn’t that where all the Royal weddings take place? That would give me goosebumps. You are so lucky to be able to walk around London and I am so thrilled that you are sharing photos with us! I am absolutely green with envy!

  6. Congratulations to Kate!

    Amazing architecture, huh!!! It boggles my mind that massive cathedrals, castles, and other structures were built in Europe centuries ago without modern technology. And they’re so beautiful. Thanks for sharing the pix! I love them.

    1. Thanks El! Yes, I am always in awe of the beautiful things that they created all those years ago! Glad that you enjoyed the pics! πŸ™‚
