Well after a tiring flight from Hong Kong we finally arrived at our Hotel at almost 11:00pm local time - time to hit the sack for some much needed shuteye before exploring London in the morning. So here we go with London - problem is we have so many photos its going to be hard to choose what to put on the website!

After a hearty breakfast, it was a short walk to Buckingham Palace. Queenie was off at her other place - Windsor Castle
We had a wander through St James's Park. Typical English Summer - raining on our first day!
Where the kids got to feed the squirrels on our leftover Cathay Pacific peanuts. I hope the salt is OK for their diet!
We next watched the changing of the Guards at Horse Guards Parade
Danielle and Connor with one of the Guards, before going on to Churchill's War Cabinet Rooms museum
Next we walked around to Big Ben and the Houses of Parliamant near Westminister Pier
Another shot of Big Ben
Next across the bridge to take a look at the London Eye
Then the long walk around Victoria Embankment through to the Tower of London. This is Tower Bridge.
We had a guided tour with a Yeoman Guard (Beefeater) which gave us a great commentary on the history behind the Tower of London.
We braved the Tubes at rush hour to head back to the hotel and the end of Day One with dinner at St Georges Tavern - a local pub. Even Danielle tried the mushy peas.
Day Two - and we got a day traveller ticket for the trains and headed to Madam Tussauds. Here the kids take on The Incredible Hulk...
...while I fend off Jonah Lomu...
...and Vicki is obviously distracted by Nicolas Cage
Next back to the Tube for a short run to...
...the London Dungeon, which was a great attraction, especially the mock hanging at the end.
The third stop on our big attraction day was the London Eye
The views all around London from the Eye was spectacular.
Even the weather had taken a turn for the better. Here we are by Westminister Abbey
Day Three (Saturday) and we walked from our hotel to Knightsbridge to see Harrods and the Museums
The Science Museum was full of interesting inventions through history - this is Stephenson's Rocket -one of the first steam trains
And ths is a Lunar Landing module from the Apollo program
Even the Imax 3D Movie about space was great, despite having to wear nerdy glasses
Next was the Natural History Museum, with the best area being the dinosaurs
We rounded the day off with a quick visit and afternoon tea at Regent's Park
Day Four (Sunday) and we took a bustour, which included a ferry ride down the Thames. This is a view of the Tower of London and Traitors Gate.
We took the ferry down to Greenwich
Stopping for lunch at the British Naval College at Greenwich
Heading back to Westminister, we caught the Tour Bus again for some great commentary and sightseeing around London
Here's Picadilly Circus. Not far from here we went into a Toy Store which had 6 floors of toys!
Before moving on to St Pauls
Day Five (Monday) and we are leaving London to pick up our rental car
Before driving on to Windsor and Legoland
Which was full of Lego themed rides
Here is Danielle on the Driving School course
Over 25 million lego bricks went into all the models in Legoland
The detail was amazing, including this model of St Pauls
Even a model of Harry Potter and Haggred
After Legoland we headed north west to Stratford Upon Avon, here is the birthplace home of William Shakespear. Tomorrow we head to Liverpool
