We had such a great time in London. Here are a few last photos I took on our last day.
We made a quick trip to the British Museum. Can you believe that it is free?
The fabulous interior lobby. The round wall circles the reading room. It was finished in 2000.
A photo in the Greek section to give you an idea of how enormous this museum is.
The Elgin Marbles, figures from the Greek Pantheon. It’s very controversial that they are in England and not Greece but Elgin probably saved them from being destroyed or stolen so in many ways it’s a good thing. There was a man there making casts of the marble statutes to be sent to Athens. No exactly the same thing but a good idea. At least they can see them there.
Just look at this overload of flowers on this pub, the Churchill Inn.
I liked this park entrance.
This struck me funny.
We took this old fashioned bus to get back to get our suitcases and leave. It is really fun to sit on the top of a double decker bus and get a look at London as you drive along.
