While otherwise locked away from public viewing, the Foreign and Commonwealth Office unveiled its splendor during the Open House event. Tip: Get there early and be prepared to queue but it’s worth the wait!

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

architecture is, the wonders of Mother Nature are
