London - Day 4

We didn't have much planned for our last day in London, but we started off the day by visiting the British Museum.
The architecture of the museum was pretty neat. All of the columns and details were pretty interesting.
The museum was free (which was nice!) and was filled with a lot of interesting things. The main attraction is the Rosetta stone. (Pictured on the above right.) You could definitely spend a good chunk of your day exploring the British museum. We saw a mummy and a bunch of sarcophaguses which were kinda neat. There was a Japanese art exhibit that my brother had wanted to see, but unfortunately it had just left the museum.
Reconstruction of the Balawat Gate. I'm not sure if the metal part is original or not, but I know the door itself was reconstructed.
We spent the morning and early afternoon exploring the museum, then headed out to walk around the area around the museum. We stopped by a few tourist shops to pick up some souvenirs before heading back to revisit St Dunstan-in-the-East.

I was glad that St Dunstan-in-the-East was open this time. I was excited to get in and take some pictures. I know most people have probably never heard of St Dunstan in the East, and it certainly isn't a popular tourist spot, but I had read about it online and thought it sounded neat. The church itself has an interesting story, and I thought it would be cool to check out some ruins.
We stopped by Pret a Manger for dinner, then sat by the Thames and ate. The weather was just right for eating outside. Not too hot and not too cold. We then decided to walk by the Tower Bridge one last time to get a few more pictures.
So that is the end of our time in London! Even though we did a lot while in London, there is still SO much more to see there! We all really enjoyed it and I would definitely visit London again! 

Check back next week where I begin to post about our time in France!


  1. You got some interesting shots of the Tower Bridge, we should have walked to the other side when we visited BUT it was getting late and I was just wiped. That church kind of looks like the one Ross and Emily I think was her name, almost get married in on Friends.

    1. Thank you! There is SO much to look at it is hard to get everything in! I feel like we did a lot but there is still stuff I am wishing I would have done! Oh well, I guess there is always next time!

  2. These pictures were so awesome. Hey, here's a question for you... would you like to follow each other?

    1. Thank you very much! And I would like it if you followed me as well! I just followed your blog :)
