Is Big Ben really leaning?

It was fascinating to be in London, England - waking up in London it is beyond words to describe. I've seen pictures over pictures of all these sites but seeing them with my own two eyes and setting foot on London soil and looking up at these monuments were breathtaking.

Being in Westminster abbey was goregous - now i see why Princess Kate and Prince Will got married there. I remember just sitting down against the wall at the entrance looking around me and up in awe.... took my breath away. I could have sat there all day.

We walked everywhere and my feet were hurting and tired but i kept on dragging them onwards. I am glad I did. Next day i would change  my shoes which had helped not make them so sore. So there is your tip for the day: pack 3 or 4 pairs of shoes, changing your shoes will limit how sore your feet will get.

When I heard on the news that Big Ben was leaning - I told mother nature to stop it. Stop ruining these structures before i get a chance to see them. 

Do you see the lean?

How about now? ha ha okay this is just me tilting the camera on purpose. But it makes a great masterpiece. I love changing the angle on the camera to snap that everlasting memory, as sometimes seeing something in a different angle changes how you see it and makes its natural beauty recognizable, more foreseeable.

68 Royal Hospital Road
London SW3 4HP United Kingdom

When in London, eat as the English do. Very elegant, high class.

Service Hospitality high rate, each time you get up to go to the washroom they walk you to the door. Then they come back to the table and refold your napkin. Between meals they wipe the crumbs from the table.

Breaks in between courses – nice touch and great idea gives you some time to digest your food and really enjoy it. We also ordered one bottle of wine that night then after that we all just stuck with water, which by the way they charge you for it. They tried to get us to order another bottle of wine, but one was enough.

It was a small restaurant space, very elegant, high class. Defiantly know why you must book a month in advance - but very well worth it! Actually I booked five months in advance, this was an opportunity I did not want to miss out of.

Now unfortunately Gordon Ramsay was not there himself that night. But he trains his cooks very well because we actually heard the chef yell when the kitchen door swung open. Besides the yelling the Food is mouthwatering, delicious!

Choose your meal style – A La Carte Menu Three courses for 95£, Menu prestige Seven courses for 125£, Seasonal Inspiration Seven courses for 135£. 

 First course meal

Three course menus was plenty of food – I could not have imagined if we had chosen the seven course menus, which would have been a lot of food and we would have been there for hours. Our Dinner reservations were already at 8pm and we probably left, oh who knows when we left because i was not paying attention to the time.

After the meal they called us a cab and grabbed our coats. Thank you for a fabulous, magnificent London meal and the most expensive meal i will ever eat.... but only the best meal it was!!
