Day Two in London--10/2/11

I had bought tickets several months earlier to tour Buckingham Palace on Sunday.  In addition to touring the palace, they had a special royal wedding exhibit.  On display, they had Kate's wedding dress, shoes, tiara, veil, earrings and a replica of her bouquet,  in addition to their wedding cake.  They wouldn't let you take pictures in the Palace so unfortunately, I'll just have to remember it myself.  Her wedding dress was gorgeous!

After the Palace tour, we walked through Green Park toward Westminster Abbey and had a light lunch at the Red Lion Pub.

 After lunch we walked to see Big Ben, Parliament, and Westminster Abbey.  Unfortunately, the Abbey does not offer tours on Sundays because of church services, so we had to come back and do the tour another day.
