A tourist in London
I did several of the usual tourist things.
Went to see a show in the West End – Billy Elliot – excellent.
Walked to Buckingham Palace, along The Mall, round Trafalgar Square and visited Westminster Abbey.
It’s amazing to see the tombs of Elizabeth 1 and Mary Queen of Scots among so many others.
I particularly enjoyed a boat trip down the Thames to see the Thames Barrier and visit to The National Maritime Museum and Observatory in Greenwich.
