I also want this bucket list to serve as a running list of places people suggest I visit. The excitement, interest and support I receive from family and friends about my trip to London is simply wonderful. Everyone is always suggesting a new place to go, see or eat, and I need a place to keep track of it all!
If you have a place (or many places) I just can't go to London without seeing, please email me or comment below, and I will be sure to add it to the list!
Here we go! (In no particular order of importance)
Westminster Abbey The House of Parliament/ Big Ben Trafalgar Square Buckingham Palace(This might be near the top of the list in importance)
- Changing of the Guard
St. James Park National Gallery(I love galleries/museums. If you do as well, you'll be getting plenty of that here!) Leicester Square
- Cafe in the Crypt
- Somerset House
Covent Garden St. Paul's Cathedral Millenium Bridge/ River Thames Tate Modern

(Note: I got a great portion of this list from Frommer's London 2012)
I'm sure there are a lot more wonderful places that I will visit while I am there! As I said, please contact me if there is one that I do not have on my list!
On a side note, I decided to take both Frommer's London 2012 and British English from A to Zed with me. They are quite large books, but great resources.
Until next time,
Lift, noun, to go higher in a building without walking. Americans call these elevators. (What you didn't know: In Britain, an elevator is a device you put in your shoe to make you stand taller. In Americas call these lifts. Tricky, tricky.) (From the British English A to Zed dictionary by Norman w. Schur).
