Westminster Abbey, London

SINCE IT WAS OUR LAST DAY IN LONDON, we wanted to cover as much as we could... and so our walk continued on from St. James Park to Westminster Abbey.... and one famous icon that Aaron mentioned we must take a picture like this.... below....
Iconic scene of London.... 
Must not leave London without taking this picture, so he said... LOL.... 
As we walked to the Abbey, this is the surrounding scenery... 

It was a Sunday and people just love the sun!
But I took this picture hiding from the sun!  LOL... 
Big Ben at the background... 
The Westminster Abbey against the sun... 
Every year Westminster Abbey welcomes over one million visitors who want to explore 
this 700 year old building... It is open from Monday till Saturday but on Sunday, 
it is only open to those who want to worship.... 
So we just stayed around the vicinity before we walked on... 
Next time we must go and visit on a non-Sunday... 
Forgot what building this is... 
It is just opposite the Westminster Abbey... 
Before we walked on, we need some refreshment for energy... 
One last panorama view before we proceeded on to 
River Thames!

  5. Nice pose with the red phone booth and Big Ben in the background. Westminster Abbey is beautiful and so are the other buildings.
