St. Paul's, Windsor, and Spamelot
We had a great second day here in London. Our day began with a visit to St. Paul's Cathedral in Central London. The church was designed by Sir Christopher Wren and built in the late 17th century, replaced the medieval St. Paul's that was burned in the Great Fire of 1666. It was most recently made famous with marriage of Prince Charles and Lady Diana in 1981.
We then proceeded to Buckingham Palace, residence of Queen Elizabeth II in London to witness the famous changing of the guard.
We then proceeded to Windsor Castle, the Queen's home outside of London where we toured the State Apartments and St. George's Chapel.
We finished the evening at a West End show by attending a performance of Monty Python's Spamelot. We all enjoyed the show very much. Everyone is having a great time here in London.
