The Household Cavalry have a museum-£6 entry. You can look in to the stables and try on their armour.
They have a changing of the guard here at 11am.
Then I went to Wellington barrack, where the Guards have their museum. If you arrive about 11.15 you will see the new guard marching off to Buckingham Palace, and there is no crowd of tourists.
The old guard arrives back about 12, and there was no crowd when I came out of the museum. However a lot of people ran over when they saw them arrive.
I headed to Parliament.
Parliament wasn’t having tours when I went for some reason. I walked over to Westminster Abbey but the queue was long and it was expensive.
I caught a train to London Bridge. Someone coming out of the station at Westminster thought the first building he saw was Buckingham Palace, so he will be showing his family a lot of pictures of the Treasury.
If you like design you should go here. They change the exhibitions regularly. When I went they had a good gallery of Kenneth Grange.
They also had an exhibition of archetypal designs.
I crossed London Bridge.
I didn’t go to the Tower because it was £20! I went back to Harrow. It was my host’s birthday so we all went out for ‘Thai’. Some of it was Chinese and some was very Anglicised- tomato sauce in the pad thai!
