The visit to the War Rooms brought home the reality of what the British and others were involved in during the height of the war. Well worth a visit.

A fascinating insight into how the Battle of Britain was one. It must have been awful for those hundreds of people to have to live like moles for prolonged periods.

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
