Visit to the Tower of London

Wednesday 19th June 2013

After a long wait, today Gina & I finally got around to visiting the Tower of London. A most interesting as well as historical place.

It was a gloriously hot day, and we had a great time, which we finished off with a meal outside a restaurant in the nearby St. Katherine’s dock.

We definitely recommend the Beefeater tours !

Visit to Blenheim Palace

Tuesday 18th June 2013

Today we visited Blenheim Palace, near Oxford, ancestral home of the Marlborough family.

During the day we had two guided tours of the stateley home, which also included talks and exhibitions on the 1st Duke of Marlborough, and his most famous decendant, Sir Winston Churchill.
