The Royal Room tour was really something to behold. The art display was worth the price of admission on its own. Took some memerable pictures in the outdoor area. Good stop !

A beautiful place surrounded by a garden. And there are several Statues and fountain in front of it. Also you may sit down to have a rest as well as to enjoy the beauty. Recommended for anyone who is visiting London.

If you only had an afternoon to experience London on a
grand scale, Westminster would be a wise place to
start. The ornate Houses of Parliament and Westminster
Abbey sit adjacent at a corner of Parliament Square,
and a short stroll along The Mall leads to Buckingham
Palace. Trafalgar Square and Nelson's Column are just
up the road as well. As captivating as the
architecture is, the wonders of Mother Nature are
