London was all bright and shiny, what with the Queens Jubilee (60 years on the throne) and the Olympic Games happening. Here are a few snapshots from my visit there prior to the games in early June 2012.
There is always a buzz of activity around Piccadilly Circus and Leicester Square.
A couple of London icons
And London Taxi’s of course!
Many of London’s famous landmarks can be found in Westminster and it’s surrounds.
Westminster Abbey (the current church was begun by Henry III in 1245)

Around Tower Bridge is an interesting mix of the old and the new in London.
