We were in London recently for a wedding. It’s a long time since we were last there and it was great to catch up with my cousin (Thank you Louise, you looked after us wonderfully during our stay), and to do some sightseeing.
With a population of 8.3 million, it is the largest city in Europe and the twenty-first largest in the world. It receives 15 million visitors a year. It is a city where over 300 languages are spoken. (Nicky Gumbel)
It’s a big place and coming from West Cork, the bigness is all the bigger! Here’s a small selection of the many photos we took… Perhaps the most famous house in Britain…
The Natural History Museum – one of the favourite venues of my childhood…
The Great Court at the British Museum.
Columns at the British Museum
Wonderful Lion detail on the entrance door to the British Museum
View over the houses of Parliament from the ‘London Eye’.
Uh oh, been spotted!
