The famous red telephone box in London

Although London is a very popular tourist destination, it wasn't until last month that I was sort of able to explore a bit of it. The United Kingdom surely has a lot to offer but for now, London is the only British city I've been to. Here are some of the places Mike and I visited during our short layover in London.

Palace of Westminster with the world famous Big Ben (the Great Bell of the clock)

London Eye, a giant Ferris Wheel that is synonymous to London

The Buckingham Palace, the official Royal Palace of the British Monarch

The Victoria Memorial, a monument to Queen Victoria which was completed in 1924, located just in front of the main gates of the Buckingham Palace

10 Downing Street also known as the Prime Minister's Office

Cabinet Office White Hall

National Gallery in Trafalgar Square is one of the most visited art museums in the world

Nelson's Column is a monument in Trafalgar Square, a square used for community gatherings like the New Year's Eve celebration

Tower Bridge is one of the most recognizable structures in the whole world and is one of London's icon

Piccadilly Circus is a square not to be missed in London. The neon advertising will remind you of New York Times Square

Taking the "tube" is one of the best ways to feel you are in London!
