More of London

On our second full day in London, we went to the Tate Britain art gallery, where they were having a Van Gogh exhibit. Of course, Starry Night was one of the biggest attractions.

The Sunflowers painting was also nice -

But this rendition made out of 1 pound coins was really cool.

We then took a boat down the Thames River a little way -

Where we got a view of poor little Big Ben Tower under renovation -

On our way to Shakespeare's Globe Theatre.

This building is actually only 22 years old, but is built like the original Shakespeare Theatre. The ceiling is amazing.

They had tiles on the floor honoring those who contributed to the reconstruction, and were surprised to find one for the high school that my kids went to!

After that, we had to stop for a snack...

We then went to St Paul's Cathedral.

Just magnificent!


Looking up into the dome.

This is where Charles and Diana got married in 1981.

The pulpit was beautiful.

There were 2 large sculptures to commemorate the 100th anniversary of World War I to remember those who died in the war.

And our day wasn't done! That evening we attended the performance of Part I of the Harry Potter play, "Harry Potter and the Cursed Child."
