day 5

Here is an abbreviated post for day 5. I woke up late! We started off at the Tower of London. Always an amazing place to visit, the beefeaters almost steal the show. Great storytellers and bring the history of the place to life. The crown jewels are amazing, as you would expect. Not sure if I like the new display though. Kind of liked them all piled in one case like they used to be.

From the Tower we went to St. Paul's. So different from Westminster, but beautiful. We toured there and hubby climbed to the top. I took a break in the cafe. No where near as good as the Cellarium.

We walked from St. Paul's across the Millennium Bridge to the Globe Theatre. No tours when we arrived, bummer, but we explored that side of the Thames and saw quite a few things. Would have loved time to make it back that way and go to the Borough Market. Didn't happen.

From there we caught the tube back to the flat to meet the girl for dinner. We were pretty exhausted by the end of this day after several days of sightseeing. It was an early night as we needed to be up and ready to go by 7 AM on Wednesday, Day 6, for our bus tour!
