Flag of United Kingdom  ,
Thursday, September 26, 2013

Just arrived and settling into The Grosvenor, Buckingham Palace Road. Here for two nights before Paul and I move onto France; Dave and Janet to Belgium. Waiting for Paul and Dave to return via the underground after delivering the rental car back after 3000 miles (whoops kilometres!!). Then we hit the streets!

So we headed up Buckingham Palace Road to the Palace. The Queen had left her message on the flag pole to say she wasn't home, and was enjoying her holiday at Balmoral. We walked (about 5 kms) up to Leicester Square to validate our London Pass and enjoyed walking through St James Park and Trafalgar Square which was full of people enjoying the sun and various other activities. Found a nice place for a coffee and planned the next move! We were by this time in West End so the obvious thing was to take in a show. Jersey Boys for the third time for the Blacker's (twice in New York now London) - first for the Buxton's. Early dinner, show and back to the hotel in a London taxi. Jersey Boys fantastic! Taxi service - impressive. Cannot understand why Melbourne does not follow London's example.
And we fitted in 6pm communion at St Martin's of the Field, a busy city church near Trafalgar Square.
