London Day 3

First thing in the morning on Day 3 was touring the Westminster Abbey, which took all morning, and we had to go back for a little bit in the afternoon before they closed.  It was definitely one of the highlights of the whole trip.  Many important people were buried in the Abbey, like kings and queens of England, Handel and other composers, David Livingstone and William Wilberforce, etc.  Unfortunately, like most fascinating places we’ve been to, photography was not allowed inside.

After the tour we grabbed some lunch in the area.  Then we walked through St. James’s Park to Buckingham Palace.

Horse Guards

Then we walked back towards the Parliament building and took a walk on the south bank of the Thames River.

We went to Chinatown by Leicester Square for dinner.  After dinner as we were heading to the tube we heard a lot of commotion and saw huge crowds on the square.  We decided to be good tourists and check it out.  Turns out it was the premiere of “The Karate Kid”.  Guess who we saw?
