Westminster Abbey (28 June 2008)
I still have a few posts about my trip in 2008 to London. In my previous post about this trip we explored London with a bus tour from “The Original Tour”.
It was difficult to get started on our third day in London. After spending a day watching tennis at Wimbledon and seeing the changing of the guards we were tired. But there was still a so much that we wanted to see and we dragged ourselves out of bed to get ready for another day of exploring.
We started the day by walking to Holborn station. (Russell Square station was closer but it was closed over the weekend for repairs). We then took the tube to Westminster and walked to Westminster Abbey.
It was more expensive to enter Westminster Abbey than we expected. The price included a very interesting audio tour and this tour made a big difference to our visit. We planned to stay a few hours but then spend the whole morning in the Abbey. We listened to all the information and lost ourselves in the history.
