Day 7

Still a bit weary so we had a later start as all we had on today was a trip to Buckingham Palace. This turned out to be a bit of a surprise as we were booked in at 12:15 to the Queens Gallery, which contained a number of gifts that had been passed to the monarchy throughout the years. The audio headphones were a bonus as you got to hear some background on some of the works of art, clocks and porcelain.
We then visited the Palace state rooms where a number of functions are held for dignitaries. The size and design of these rooms were just unbelievable, unfortunately no photos were allowed. We followed this with a visit to the Royal Mews to view many of the carriages used for coronations, weddings etc. as well as the horses. Got home around 5pm with sore feet again.
