Wednesday 23rd May.
What a wonderful day,Westminster Abbey was amazing and I cannot begin to tell you of the quilts that are growing in my mind since seeing the wonderful ceilings, floors and windows. Unfortunately, I was not able to take pictures so had to buy a book instead.....shame! We walked around the Houses of Parliament and were blown away by the architecture of this palace. Shame the politicians get to monopolise it. We then took a turn on the London Eye which was fantastic. What a fabulous piece of engineering and knowing a guy who was part of the design and building project made it even more special. It was quite hot today,so a cool beer was most welcome and whilst sitting there discovered the London Lying-In Hospital,which,as the name implies,was a maternity hospital! We then travelled back to London Bridge by river taxi where Simon visited HMS Belfast whilst I did a bit of shopping and then dinner at an oriental restaurant by Tower Bridge. Not so amusing was finding our journey home complicated by discovering that the tubes on the Jubilee Line were stopped due to a broken down train! I think all of London tried to get on the No 47 bus back to Adam's flat.
