In November 2013, my family took me on a birthday trip to London, which happened to fall on memorial weekend, 11.11.2013. I expected busy streets on the Sunday; however the whole weekend was filled with magic from the Lord Mayor’s parade, with fireworks on the River Thames, to seeing the Queen and Royal family paying their respects outside Westminster Abbey, during the minute silence.

There as a magnificent sense of unity throughout London, an unforgettable experience; this was topped off with a West End performance of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and visiting Baker Street, home of Sherlock Holmes.

London has a lot to offer, being the capital of London it is full of historical landmarks. For example the Houses of Parliament at its heart, the iconic Big Ben clock tower and Westminster Abbey. Which are all across the Thames from the London Eye. London is a leading Global city within Entertainment, Arts and Fashion, but overall it is one of the most Historical Cities of our time.
