This post is not a cruising blog, more a tourist blog. We had a week in London and this is a taste of the some of the places we hit over that time.
With our Australian friends in tow it was off to the London tourist traps. It's been quite a few years since we were last at Madame Tussaud's and things have changed, now you get to mingle with all the wax figures. Here's a few of the many pics we took.
It was off to the theatre at the West End to see Mousetrap.
The next day it was off to the London Museum. A couple of the highlights of the visit were the Rosetta Stone, the key to deciphering Egyptian hieroglyphics.
And, a dedicated room, built in the shape of the Greek acropolis to display the controversial Elgin Marbles. Just one of the many panels here.
A visit to the London Museum wouldn't be complete without a pic of an sarcophagus.
Rather than show you a pic of us with a Beefeater at the Tower of London there's nothing like a good old chopping block. This was housed in the White Tower and guaranteed to have been used to remove several heads.
After a great week, including some great dining out, we started to retrace our steps northwards.
