          Our last day in London. This was the view of Windsor castle from our hotel room.
After riding on the train and the underground, we were able to see another of the Queen's houses, Buckingham palace.
The last time I was here was the day that Diana died. I was on my way to Holland and got to Buckingham palace early in the morning, flowers were only starting to be laid at the gates.
It must be strange to grow up always having people gawking at you.
I tried to get everyone into this shot, Kiki didn't want to pose because she was cross that we didn't go and ring the queen's doorbell to say hello. She thought that we were being rude :)

We then walked back into the hustle and bustle of Piccadilly circus.
Here was Hubby looking rather short next to the model of the tallest man :)

And a two headed calf, poor thing.

Then over to Trafalgar square

Nelson's column

Where the children climbed onto the lions

Helping each other climb the steps

Out of everything, they were most excited about spotting Big Ben!
Next time we will get much closer to Big Ben.

No, we didn't, that's why it was so quiet, well, London can never be called 'quiet' but you know what I mean :)
