YOUR TOUR GUIDE TODAY WILL BE ~ EMILY
London, Windsor and Eaton
Continuing with my travel posts, today we will visit London, Windsor and Eaton, UK.
With so much excitement about the Royal Wedding I thought it to be the perfect time for me to pull photographs from trips to London, Windsor, and Eaton. Windsor is about twenty miles west of London, and Eaton, just a walk across the bridge from Windsor over The River Thames.
While on a trip, Jim and I usually visit the popular tourist destinations, and we also venture off the beaten path to see the places important to us. We like to take day trips from our base city, this way we get a feel of cities and country villages. The people we meet along the way are as different as the towns we visit.
Today we'll tour London, then we'll take a day trip traveling by train to Windsor and Eaton.......I hope you enjoy your tour.

Walking toward the college we catch glimpses of the students wearing their traditional white tie and tailcoat and pinstripe trousers. This is not for special occasions, this is their uniform. It looks like everyone is dressed for the Prom!

All the ducks in a row
Back to London
Westminster Abbey is where Prince William and Katherine Middleton will marry on Friday. Jim and I attended Sunday Service and Evensong here several times on our past trips. We toured the cathedral and visited The Poets' Corner where we saw the burial place of some of the most famous poets; Dryden, Tennyson, Browning , Dickens, Kipling and many others. If you get to London you don't want to miss this tour.For more photographs of Westminster Abbey click Westminster Abbey
Westminster Choir Boys
Such angelic little faces
Westminister Boys Choir to Sing at Royal Wedding
I feel very fortunate to have been in the Abbey to hear this beautiful music and boys choir sing. According to news reports the Westminster Boys Choir will sing at the wedding of Prince William and Katherine Middleton.
Please scroll down and turn off the French Hutch Playlist to listen to Westminster Boys Choir.
