Australian Embassy

The guided tour by bus left shortly after 9am. We followed the crowded streets from one imposing sight to another historical monument and further to another beautiful building.

Of course, it would have been even nicer to spend more time at each stop but if there’s no additional time to waste, you want to see as many neat spots as possible in only a few hours or you’re interested in a first overall view such a sightseeing tour is a quite good opportunity. 

 

We stopped e.g. at the Buckingham Palace where the Queen had arrived some hours before (yes, the flag was waving there today), St. Paul’s Cathedral, passed the Little Ben, the Tower of London and the Australian Embassy. So what’s so special about this embassy? I think it’s the fact that this building was used as the set for the wizards’ bank ‘Gringotts’ in ‘Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone’ - nice information anyway.

 

In the afternoon we visited the colourful Shakespeare Globe Theatre and went for a little walk around the centre. … Yes, in the end we definitely deserved another big dinner including varied fried treats and just a handful of peas. ;-)
