Continuation of my posts about our recent 10th anniversary trip to Iceland, London, Geneva, Milan, Venice, and Colorado. Click here to see all the posts, and click here to see the recent post about our first two days in London.
On the advice of a friend, we decided to spend our last day in London at Windsor Castle. The 45 minute train through the English contryside is wonderful in itself. What a nice break this was after two busy days in London!
We especially enjoyed seeing the childhood home (and current weekend home) of Queen Elizabeth II after watching The Crown!
The line to buy tickets and enter Windsor Castle was long (I would recommend buying tickets in advance – that was my error!), but we were able to see the changing of the guards while we waited! Once inside the gate, there’s a free self-guided audio tour, which we both enjoyed. No pictures allowed inside the buildings, but trust me that it’s really beautiful! The tour took us around two hours.
When we got back to the city, we went to one of my must-sees: Victoria & Albert Museum. It was Saturday night, when they have extended late hours. The museum is beautiful – and free! I’ve never seen a museum arranged in such a way. We felt really immersed in the atmosphere they created.
Then we went to Harrod’s. Honestly, it was a nightmare. The Saturday night before Christmas is not the time… We got in and out as fast as we can. At least we checked it off the list!
