London Trip - Day 3

Friday, August 16, 2013

The morning started when we met our friends Joe and Christina at the train station in London.  We drove to Windsor Castle and spent the day sightseeing with them.

 Here you can see Queen Elizabeth's Foot Guards.  Windsor Castle is the oldest and largest occupied castle in the world and it's the official residence of Queen Elizabeth and the royal family.

The castle grounds are large and here are a few photos of it.






If you look closely you can see a sign that says Please Keep Off the Grass and I thought it was so cute to see a dog on the grass!  The dog must belong to one of the workers.


I love the costume on these girls, they were standing just outside the castle grounds.

We stopped at the pub in the white building to have a Shandy and drinks to refresh ourselves before our next destination.  A Shandy is beer with lemonade in it and for the recipe and post you can find it HERE.

We drove to Henley-On-Thames and had lunch at a pub called The Angel.  This was our view of the water, boats, ducks, and birds.

We all had fish and chips and it was so nice to sit outside the pub watching everything.  The fish and chips are amazing.  Then we walked around the town.

There were tables set up in the middle of the street selling items.  Here you can see a cheesemonger with his cheese that he was selling.  Our friend Joe bought some cheese to take home to his Mom and Dad.

Here is a table with cake stands and various tea cups.


After walking around the town we set out to see Oxford University.


We then set out for Golders Green, which is a short drive outside of London to see Joe's Mom and Dad for tea and cookies.


It was a wonderful day sightseeing and I think that this was my favorite day of our trip in London.

I want to welcome to my blog all my new followers.  Thanks, I hope you enjoy and I love all of your sweet comments.

Wishing everyone a wonderful weekend.

  2. Now Julie, is that a corgi on the grass? In which case a lady with a crown would probably be looking for it! Great photos of a place that I haven't been to yet - No, never been to Windsor funnily enough! I hope you are still enjoying the shandy! Take care my lovely. Chel x

    1. Hi Chel, I can't believe you haven't been there yet! You will have to see it so you can take a lot of pictures with that nice camera that you have. Have a great weekend.

  5. Julie,
    Thank you so much for sharing on Tuesday Trivia. I featured you and all three of your days in London. What a great trip. My mom and I went there a few years ago and are planning another trip there in the spring.
