Last day in London

British Museum and National Portrait Gallery

On our final day in London we all headed to the British Museum which of course has a massive collection of artifacts from all over the world. I found it incredible to see stuff that had survived for thousands of years and although we only touched the surface it was an interesting few hours.
Last time we were in London, Doug and I popped into the National Portrait Gallery just before it closed and I have wanted to go back ever since. So that was our next port of call. I especially loved the Tudor and Stuart portraits, with a modern painting of William and Harry among them.
So that's London done and dusted for this trip. It is a hectic city and we have spent a lot of time on public transport, and even more on our feet! It is a place for young fit legs and I am happy to move on.
Tom flies home today and Doug and I embark on our last leg - heading to Devon for cream tea!
