Kensington - Buckingham
Morning walk from Kensington to the Buckingham Palace. The Albert Memorial in Hyde Park. Royal Albert Hall Wellington Arch Buckingham Palace. The State Quarters are open to visitors, but not to cameras.
     
Queen Victoria Memorial      
Belgravia
Weekend specials made it possible to move to Belgravia -- home of Harvey Nichols, Gucci, Prada and Armani. The streets are littered with Aston Martins, Ferraris and Rolls-Royces. A row of multi-million pound townhouse on Eaton Place. Historic landmark on Sloane street.
City of Westminster
The City of Westminster is home to Westminster Abbey and the Houses of Parliament. Most of England's monarchs have been crowned in Westminster Abbey. Some of them are also buried here. Across the street the Houses of Parliament, seat of the British government. Two London essentials: The Tube and Big Ben.
   
  Across the river: the London Eye.    
St. Paul's Cathedral
St. Paul's and the Millenium Bridge seen from the Tate Modern. The Cathedral was designed by Sir Christopher Wren and took 35 years to build. View of the interior from the gallery (no cameras allowed, hehe). View from the top. In the background: Tate Modern and the London Eye.
