Jolly Old England

What a fun place to visit! London is a grand city, multicultural, sprawling, lots to do! Our city tour with a private driver took us to the tourist highlights- changing of guard at Buckingham Palace, Tower of London, Marble Arch, Parliament and Big Ben, Westminster Abbey, as well as through many neighborhoods- Westminster, town of London, Camdentown, Russell Square

We really got a feel for the city and knew where we wanted to go back to visit more deeply. Our first stop was The British Museum  near Russell Square. Highlights include the Rosetta Stone, Egyptian artifacts,  the Elgin Marbles from the Parthanon, Lewis Chess Set,
