Decided to go back to the Cabinet War Rooms and Churchill Museum today and actually go inside for a tour. The Cabinet War Rooms is where Winston Churchill announced shortly after becoming Prime Minister that "This is the room from which I will direct the war".
Inside the war rooms you could see the bunkers where he directed the war. The main rooms are The Cabinet Room, Churchills room (he liked breakfast in bed), Map room and The Transantlantic Telephone Room. If you like history like me then this is worth a visit.
In the afternoon I went on the "Old City of London" tour. Learnt a few things that I didn't know before.
- The population of the City of London is actually only 8000. The greater London is the City of Westminster. City of London has its own Mayor and Police but I think its mostly ceremonial.
- London Bridge in the pictures is not actually London Bridge, its Tower Bridge. The actual London Bridge is an ugly looking thing.
Other things I saw on the tour:
- Tower of London.
- The Bank of England.
- The Royal Exchange.
- Millennium Bridge.
- HMS Belfast.
- Tate Modern.
- Globe Theatre.
- London Eye.
- St Paul's Cathedral.
- Royal Courts of Justice on Fleet St. (For the Harry Potter fans, did you know the clock outside this building was taken down for the filming of Harry Potter? Apparently it's the Hogwarts clock)
Will put some photos up later.
Tomorrow I am heading to Bath and Stonehenge for a day trip so have to wake up early.
St Pauls is probably my favourite cathedral so far, going to try and head back there on Monday and go inside for a visit. Apparently you can climb 200 something steps and go up to the Dome to see the Whispering Room and a view of London.
