Last week Saturday I went walkabout through London…well more specifically, through the City of Westminster, which is a city in it’s own right, albeit within the Greater London area.  This city is chock-a-block with fabulous ‘things to see’.  I have walked this route numerous times before and yet I always discover something new…..this was no exception.

these two fabulous guns/cannons are to be found in the Horse Guards Parade.  The following memorial is situated near St James’s Palace…..

I also had the greatest of luck and managed to visit the Cloisters of Westminster Abbey.  There was some sort of ceremony going on so I just kinda walked in….. as I do. 🙂  There are some fabulous memorials scattered about, one of which is dedicated to Edmond Halley…….
