It is our last day in London, and we had a leisurely day planned at the nearby Victoria & Albert, our favorite London museum.
Like New Yorkers, Londoners do not give in to threats from those who resent our freedoms. So today was almost a normal day, and we spent it doing normal tourist things.
…we would have been at Parliament this afternoon. Wednesday is the key day to visit, as the Prime Minister often attends that day.
Today, the female partner in Lambert Tours worked with her Northern associate to plan a lovely day for me in Liverpool.
Today was the first damp and gloomy one of our trip, so we thought it was a good day to visit Westminster Abbey and to reacquaint ourselves with the good, great and famous buried there.
Weren’t we just at the sites of her beheading and burial in the Tower of London? Ah yes, we have been thinking quite a bit about Anne Boleyn lately. So, how wonderful to be able to visit Hever Castle today, her family home in Kent.
Today we had the privilege of traveling with Lambert Tours, a full-service bespoke guide organization providing unique insights into British history and cultural life. Can’t recommend them highly enough, though very few will have the opportunity to command their services. (We have them fully booked for this weekend, so don’t even bother.)
For two thousand years, the site of the Tower of London has played an important role in the life of the city and the history of England. We thought it was definitely worth another visit.
Okay, relax. I am not so far gone that I would let anyone supplant William Shakespeare as the master of language and creator of worlds.
Yesterday, I finally had the opportunity to see “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child,” Parts One and Two.
