Day 2 in London was one of my favorites. As planned, we went first to Westminster Abbey . This place of worship is impressive. Its Gothic architecture alone is awe inspiring. Add to that the names of kings, queens, and famous figures buried or memorialized there like Edward the Confessor, Elizabeth I, Mary Queen of Scots, Sir Isaac Newton, Charles Darwin, Charles Dickens, Rudyard Kipling, and Sir Lawrence Olivier to name a few, it is one unbelievably amazing historical edifice.
This day, we got to visit all (okay, except one) places in our itinerary. From Westminster Abbey, we walked to Westminster Pier for a River Thames Cruise. We alighted at Tower Pier for the Tower of London Tour.
