Thursday 28 July
We visited Westminster Abbey  in the morning for several hours - really interesting building with memorials to prime ministers, kings and queens, musicians, and of course Poet's Corner.
We then continued exploring the sites of London including Trafalgar Square commemorating the Battle of Trafalgar (1805). Nelson's column with a base of lions is a central feature.
Trafalgar Square is at the junction of a number of major London roads including The Mall, Whitehall and The Strand.
The National Gallery at Trafalgar Square. As in many parts of London there is much rebuilding being undertaken to be ready for the Olympic Games next July.

Marble Arch at the entrance to Hyde Park and Hyde Park - a restful place in a busy city.
