The Abbey

Thursday, October 20, 2016
London, England, United Kingdom
We spent a few hours this morning touring Westminster Abbey. With an audio guide narrated by Jeremy Irons, The tour takes you through the famous church and all of the monuments and tombs within. We also saw the cloisters but decided to skip the gardens. It is October, and while sunny, it is a bit chilly and past season for the garden tour. 
Next we set off for Buckingham Palace and, of course, the gift shop . Here we paid our respects to Canada Gate located across from the Victoria Memorial, before heading east on the Mall to Trafalgar Square. We had lunch on The Strand at Bello Italia, a restaurant we enjoyed on our last visit, and spent the rest of the afternoon walking around and enjoying the very busy city.
Supper at a local pub in Earl's Court and a quiet evening ended the day.
