Here's the home of Parliamentary democracy. Looking good, on the outside at least.
Tower Bridge looked really good from the river boat.
Boris's office, all very modern and glassey. Impressive and interesting to see, but not sure I like the modern style of it over much.
HMS Belfast, still looking good. I sometimes wonder, if we brought these old ships out of retirement, refitted them, slapped modern missile systems on them, could we rule the waves again? Or at least our own waters?
The Tower of London, this entrance hasn't been used for a while.
The Greatest Briton Ever.
Some scruffy types exercising their democratic rights.
That chap Oliver Cromwell, creator of the New Model Army, General, Parliamentarian, Lord Protector and so on. Being a bit of a Loyalist Royalist myself, I do wonder if he could have tried just a bit harder to sort things out with Charles, maybe over a beer or two, and all that nasty beheading business may have been avoided.
The Cenotaph. God Bless them all, past, present and future.
The RAF Memorial, near Windsor. This is a large, wonderful peaceful building, it really pulls at you, with all the names and ages on the walls, of people from all parts of the Commonwealth and beyond, who lost their lives.
An enjoyable time was had, seeing the above and other places besides. A trip to Duxford Imperial War Museum on the way up was a good way to finish the week, I'll post up those pictures later.
