Where I stayed
We walked on to Westminster Abby and then Parliament. Being Saturday, the MP's were not in session. We moved on to the London Eye - the giant Ferris wheel 440 ft tall. Lines were long, but they moved pretty fast and we got to see the city from a unique perspective.
From there, we went to the theatre district to get tickets for a show. We passed by the Calvary Museum and Trafalgar Square on the way. You can't throw a stone without hitting something famous! We got tickets to see Oliver. It was great. The set was unbelievable. The cast and orchestra were very good. We noticed a couple of things we weren't used to: At intermission, just about everyone got little cups of ice cream and standing ovations are not just given away!
