On my first day in London I couldn't visit as many places as I planned because the way from the airport to the hotel was pretty long (especially when you have to search the hotel :D) and I forgot about that.
I've started my visit with the Symbols of the capital, Westminster Place, Big Ben, Westminster Abbey.
The second day was...royal because most of the time was spent in the Buckingham Palace ( 3 hours).
The interior of the Palace is great, the Throne Room is imposing and the Faberge Collection is littlle, sweet and very precious.
If you love art, don't miss the Queen's Gallery. For me it was an interesting experience... I never knew how to "read" a painting, but the audio-book offered a great description and kept me captivated for 1 hour.
I wanted very much to visit the wax museum and the first stop of the day was Madame Tussaud.
For the evening, something childish followed: M&M's Candy Store...It's colored, funny and full of life. Even if you have kids or not, you will love it, I'm sure.There are so many cute things, toys and candies...see pictures at my M&M's section.
In the last day I tried to decide what to visit because there were so many places...but little time left :(
I wanted very much to see the Tower of London and the Crown Jewels, so it was on the top of my "to see" list. Next to the Tower of London is the famous Tower Bridge that was my second option.
I've enjoyed also a walk on the Thames Bank, for relaxation...I was very impressed by the Mayor of London and the 30 St Mary Axe ("the Gherkin").
There is something that you should not miss!!! You will not understand how rich was/is England until you see the Crown Jewels. After you will pass in one of the most secure places from London, you will see real crowns from 1600, scepters, rings and swords.
The most famous of the crowns is the Imperial State Crown which includes "the diamond known as the Second Star of Africa (the second largest stone cut from the celebrated Cullinan Diamond), the Black Prince’s Ruby, the Stuart Sapphire, St Edward’s Sapphire and Queen Elizabeth’s Pearls Remember).
I'm sure that you will love the St Paul's Cathedral...it's huge and has a great interior Gothic style.
If you are history lover and want to know more about the England History, you should know that the crypt is home of many famous British figures like The Duke of Wellington, Lord Nelson, Sir Winston Churchill.
You'll never guess what is the best thing that St. Paul's Cathedral offers!!! A breathtaking view...After you will climb 528 steps (85 meters from the Cathedral Floor) the city will be at your feet!
