Piccadilly Circus



Piccadilly Circus is synonymous to shopping so I loved, loved it! If you ask me, the time I spent here is a little short. Considering I just spent the whole day shopping the day before, I still felt my time here was short. Haha. We saw some girls doing a survey and we were told that they closed down the street for traffic for the first time that day and it was a Sunday so it’s not a usual walking street.



Windsor Castle



Windsor castle is also an official royal residence. It is a bit far from London. We didn’t take public transportation since we were fortunate enough to have our friend drive us there. From Central London, it took us about 45 minutes to an hour to get there.






Nando’s is a popular restaurant that specializes in flame grilled peri-peri chicken. We ate at the restaurant on the street outside of the Windsor castle. We had decided to get lunch here first before visiting the castle and it didn’t disappoint.



London Bridge, Tower Bridge and the Tower of London



I thought this was the London Bridge too. But no, this is the London Bridge..



Big Ben, Downing Street, Westminster Abbey and the London Eye



From Buckingham Palace, we actually walked our way to the Big Ben. We passed by St. James Park. We passed through a few places which I will narrate below with pictures. ^^



Buckingham Palace

Buckingham Palace


The Buckingham Palace is the official residence and administrative headquarters of the reigning Royal English Monarch. It is located in the city of Westminster. Actually, we walked from China Town to the Buckingham Palace which was took about 10-15 minutes.



London’s China Town



From Trafalgar Square, China Town is only a 2-3 minute walk. We went this way actually for lunch. The place is strewn with all you can eat Chinese buffets for cheap. I also a couple of theaters around the area.



Trafalgar Square



Trafalgar Square is a public square and a very famous tourist attraction. You can also find theaters around this area, the China Town is also close by as well as other famous tourists attractions which are a walking distance from here.



Camden Town



Camden Town is one of my favorite places in London. It’s very eccentric and colorful. It is hugely associated with the alternative culture. The late Amy Winehouse was a resident.



Kensington Gardens and Kensington Palace



Kensington Gardens is a huge park located on the west of Hyde park. It was once the private gardens of Kensington Palace. It’s 111 hectares and also includes the Princess Diana Memorial Playground
