Some sightseeing in London

It’s already been two weeks since we left to enjoy London for a week. We had such a fun time in this metropole and drank so many good flat whites, enjoyed a whole bunch of museums and gallery’s and drank beers in typical English pubs. I sorted out the tons of photo’s this weekend and I’m totally ready to share them with you guys! You’re looking at the first post of the series which covers the sightseeing we did. We didn’t do this much since we love to discover the ‘undiscovered’ and less touristy things when we go on a citytrip. However you can not say you’ve been to London without seeing things like the Big Ben (also known as the Elizabeth Tower), the Tower Bridge, the Eye of London and Westminster Abbey. My favorite sight however was the St. Pauls Cathedral which really impressed me. When you’re walking away from the Eye of London towards the Tower Bridge it’s not hard to spot the beautiful dome of St. Pauls.

The Eye of London. We’ve seen it with some really dark skies hanging above it and some nice blue skies. I prefer the blue and it is quite the eye catcher if you’re strolling along the Thames.SONY DSCbig benThe Big Ben / Elizabeth Tower is something I wanted to see for quite some years. Love the colors and details it has, mass tourism walking if you’re walking towards it though!

I recommend the little streets behind it because the houses are so cute here!SONY DSCSONY DSCSONY DSC

A less touristy sight is St. Pancras, an international station in the heart of London. We looked this up at home before going and decided we had to see it because we both fell in love with the roof. And it sure was spectacular! SONY DSCThere are a lot of nice bridges to cross along the Thames. This was taken at the Golden Jubilee Bridge.
