London, United Kingdom
Oh… London… London… Lovely London…
This is my second time to London and I really love this city. Firstly, it is very easy to explore this city with the extensive underground tube network. Secondly, there are so many great places to visit that make you fall in love with London again and again.
If you can remember the footage from the Royal Wedding, this is the very place where Prince William and Kate kissed twice on the balcony of Buckingham Palace. So sweet…
Next, we went to Windsor Castle. It was an impromptu visit to Windsor Castle as we happened to walk past a poster about Windsor Castle outside the Buckingham Palace. It was raining heavily so we decided to visit Windsor Castle instead of sticking on to our planned route and get drenched.
Windsor Castle is the largest and oldest occupied castle in the world and is one of the official residences of the Queen. I wish I could show you the interior of the Castle and not only the exterior but photography is not permitted. I have never been a artsy-fartsy person but I gape in awe at the Royal Collection that was displayed.
St George’s Chapel is a place of worship at Windsor Castle and the resting places of many Kings and Queens. It is one of the finest examples of gothic architecture in the United Kingdom. The interior of the building is really magnificent and beautiful but I can’t show you any pictures because photography is also not permitted in this area.
Gosh.. The guard is so freaking young! He is just a young and handsome little boy. Can you believe that this little boy is standing there and not moving for the whole day? I think I am even older than him. Maybe this is his holiday part-time job? Lol!
We went back to our originally planned route to see the London Eye and other attractions around the area.
Beautiful lights up! I took the London Eye on my first trip here and it was really breathtaking. An amazing feat for someone like me who is so scared of heights! I have not tried taking Singapore’s Flyer though.
And…This was how we spent our Day 1 in London and stay tuned folks for Part II. 🙂
