On Sept 9, 2018 I went to see Buckingham palace. It was a mad house! Throngs of people, much like myself, standing outside the palace gates taking pictures. To be honest, it was somewhat of a disappointment. On my way to my next destination, Churchill's...More

We visited this museum with the family on our recent trip from Australia. The cabinets were full of very interesting items and the audio tour was quite informative. The kids enjoyed trying the clothing on in the horses stables for a bit of fun.

Nice little museum charting the history of the Guards and the conflicts in which they took part. Displays are mainly made up of the uniforms through the ages, with a few interesting bits and bobs on the side.

This is a very nice museum. It features the history of the Guard, the different divisions and a lot about how they were each formed. There is also a lot about the meanings of the uniforms and the different markings that they contain. There is...More

We stumbled across the Guard’s Museum on the way to Buckingham Palace via St James Park. We didn’t go into the actual museum as we didn’t know it existed when we were there. It was purely by chance that we stumbled across what we did....More

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
