Our Trip To London - Part Three

We kept seeing the most gorgeous old buildings!






And this plaque commemorating Sir Richard Westmacott in South Audley Street; he was a famous sculptor who did the reliefs on the Marble Arch and the first commemorative statue of Admiral Lord Nelson.






The Grosvenor Chapel again.



And inside....




A detail of the arch.




The Rood Screen and High Altar.





A very bad close-up of the Rood.


There were several icons dotted around the church......




And the plaque outside to say that American troops worshipped here. The Chapel maintains strong links with the USA to this day.



We sat down in Berkeley Square and enjoyed the sunshine, peace and birdsong....





The trees were lovely.



Can you see the face in the trunk, where the left branch joins the main trunk?





The end of the Changing of the Guard.




And lots of tourists taking photos of the Guards entering the Barracks!




                            This is a much more normal shot of tourists around Buckingham Palace!




Big Ben  - or rather, the Elizabeth Tower which houses Big Ben :-)




This pretty little shell-encrusted building was in a square
 we walked past, and caught our eye.....



And this was my calzone for lunch, at an Italian brasserie close to Victoria Station. It was delicious and kept me well filled on the long journey back home to Wales.
