Favorite thing: The oldest piece at the British Museum is located at the beautiful library, and is something like 1.8 million years old and it's a chopping tool.
Favorite thing: Dotted throughout London you'll find these phone booths. Many are being eliminated and it makes for a nice pic.
Favorite thing: Here are some more pictures from the British Museum. I hope they give you some idea of what this fascinating museum is all about. Next time you're in London, do stop by.
Favorite thing: National Maritime Museum is the largest of its kind in the world, with over two million items in its collections. It's a place for a visit for almost a whole day and very inspiring.
Favorite thing: For 200 years this tower was known as the Jewel Tower because the Crown Jewels were displayed here from 1669 to 1841. Today the Martin Tower houses the exhibition Crowns & Diamonds
Fondest memory: I did not get a chance to go in, but was intrigued by the name. I have been told it is one of the oldest pubs in old London town.
Favorite thing: This is a memorial for those Canadians that died in WW2...its in Green Park...and is subtle...but cool!
Favorite thing: This is a recent memorial sighted in Whitehall that finally recognises the role women played in the 2nd World War...I like the fact that its an impression of hats & coats...they've just popped out...
Favorite thing: I was just imagining how fantastic it could be for those days people live during the period romans and greeks!
Actually, all that's left is the steeple, which Ian Nairn called Christopher Wren's best.
The rest of the church was destroyed in the Blitz.
Just to the east of Holborn Viaduct.
Favorite thing: Looking through this window you can see the courtyard - the site of the most politically sensitive of executions. Not a cheery vision for the prisoner within these walls!
Favorite thing: The yeomen warders still perform their function of Royal Guards. ...Its not just a pretty picture, there are the most fabulous pieces of the royal jewels inside!
Favorite thing: There's a legend that the Monarchy will continue as long as the ravens inhabit the Tower of London...so these pampered guests put up with a bit of wing-clipping in the interest of national security!
Favorite thing: Visit the National Gallery. It's right next to Trafalgar Square. Just look for the towering Lord Nelson.
Fondest memory: Trafalgar Square in 1968. Police stopping a religious group from making an unauthorised meeting/demonstrration from the base of the Nelson monument.
