#WanschurasHopThePond: London Part 4

Thursday began at Westminster Abbey. The final resting place of kings, queens, statesmen, and soldiers; poets, priests, heroes, and villains, the 700-year old building is a sight to behold.

The main attraction for me was seeing this statue of one of my heroes - William Wilberforce. Part of the inscription underneath reads "His name will ever be specially identified with those exertions, which by the blessing of God, removed from England the guilt of the African slave trade and prepared the way for the abolition of slavery in every colony in the empire: in the prosecution of these objects he relied, not in vain, on God..."

We missed the changing of the guard ceremony at Buckingham Palace, but caught the tail end of the parade.

Afternoon tea! 

Dan composed and shot this one

Wow! Herrods in incredible. Floor after floor, room after room, item after expensive item.

It even has a grocery store inside

The fish counter

This wedding cake would only add 3,000 pounds to your wedding budget

Royal Albert Music Hall

We ended the evening by attending The Queen's Theater's production of Les Miserables.Wow! What a phenomenal performance. By far the best play acting I've ever seen. If you're ever in London...Watch.This.Play.
