This magnificent tribute to our fallen, is an absolute must, on any visit to London, but Remembrance Sunday, it is unbelievable, a sight to behold.

This is a rather somber monument, that is somehow overlooked by many tourists. However, it is well worth to stop next to it, pay your respects and continue your stroll in Whitehall.

I made a point of walking down the entire length of Whitehall to properly pay my respects to the men & women who serve our country and keep us all safe, past, present and future.

I visited on rememberance day to pay my respects. The first time I have been in London on this day so it seemed fitting. Very emotional seeing all the wreaths and people paying homage.

Right by the Abbey you can't miss it. Worth the 2 minute walk to see it in person and pay your respects to all those who gave all.

Westminster
If you only had an afternoon to experience London on a
grand scale, Westminster would be a wise place to
start. The ornate Houses of Parliament and Westminster
Abbey sit adjacent at a corner of Parliament Square,
and a short stroll along The Mall leads to Buckingham
Palace. Trafalgar Square and Nelson's Column are just
up the road as well. As captivating as the
architecture is, the wonders of Mother Nature are
