Big Ben, Westminster Abbey And St. Margaret’s Church

Can you believe it is now Day Three?  I can’t.  I am already feeling sad just writing this as if I was still there.  My trip to London is half way over (almost).  I need to get out of this pessimistic mood and make the most of it!  So what to do, just go out there and see it and soak it in!

Well, hopefully, you remember that this is close-by to my hotel in Trafalgar Square, so you may have seen Admiralty Arch pictures that I have taken and posted before, but since I walked past this area quite a number of times during my stay, it is befitting to add some of what I saw on the way today to Westminster.  We are headed in the same direction as yesterday, as there is nothing wrong with repeating what you just saw yesterday.  Today is another day, and you always get a new perspective on the location on different days.

Admiralty Arch again.

Look what’s in the neighborhood of Trafalgar Square, here is a pub named after the great English detective!

Look at this great street – this was the location – well, the rear entrance of the original headquarters of the Metropolitan Police Service of London.  It’s within walking distance of Trafalgar Square.

Now, we are in the Big Ben area – what a stunning looking clock and housed in such a magnificent building!

Of course, I had to take a picture away from my current focus of Westminster Abbey, Big Ben and St. Margaret’s Church – but this is London, and why not get a London bus?

Here is a lovely church – St. Margaret’s Church – right next to Westminster Abbey

Do you like the name Houses of Parliament of Palace of Westminster?  This building is known by both names, but I think most commonly…..Houses of Parliament.  I once went in here and loved seeing Members of Parliament debating with each other – quite entertaining!

I love Dean’s Yard – I find it so picturesque!

 Well, I really must stop now.  Do you know I will probably have another post with more pictures of Big Ben, Westminster Abbey and St. Margaret’s Church featured in it again?  Either you will dread it or look forward to it, I hope it will be the latter.  Well, until next time!
