London (29 June 2008)
Writing the last two posts about our trip to Europe and London in 2008 was difficult. Part of me did not want to write the last bit because I don’t know when I will be able to take another trip. While I won’t be writing more posts about London or Europe soon I will read and plan for that next trip.
Our time in London was quickly running out. After spending most of the day in the Tower of London we took the tube from Tower Hill to Victoria and walked to Buckingham Palace.
The palace was built as a house for the Duke of Buckingham in 1705. It in 1761 became the residence of Queen Charlotte. It was enlarged and became an official royal palace in 1837. Read more about the palace here.
We ended the day by walking to Green Park and Hyde Park. It was about 18:00 and while the sun was shining through the clouds is was cool outside. In Hyde Park we found some chairs at the Serpentine and relaxed for a while.
