Today we planned to do all the standard “touristy” London sight seeing before checking out of the hotel and meeting our good friends Blake and Peter.

From the tube, we got out at Westminster which put us right in the heart of things. We made our way over to Westminster Bridge and enjoyed the view of the Thames taking in this iconic view which includes the London Eye and Big Ben.

We decided to have breakfast at St Stephen’s Tavern which claims to be the hangout of the local politicians. Sure, there were probably cheaper places but the Tavern is absolutely gorgeous and we couldn’t resist.

After breakfast we explored Parliament Square, Big Ben and Westminster Abbey. Walking up Whitehall Street past 10 Downing Street and the Horse Guards, we made our way to Trafalgar Square.

We had a wonderful day, the weather was perfect and we reluctantly made our way back to the hotel to pack our bags and check out.

In perfect London fashion we walked out of the hotel to find the weather had gone from perfect blue to pitch black and it was pouring. This didn’t bother us as it was a perfect excuse to get an iconic black London cab to meet the boys at The Crabtree in Fulham for drinks and dinner.

It was awesome to finally see our good friends and catch up over a couple of pints and a lovely meal.
