Our first full day in London started out kind of chilly and drizzly but it cleared up and was quite nice later on. We started the day by taking the Hop-on/Hop-off bus your around the city to get our bearings. We also took the Thames river boat cruise which was fun. The guide was very funny.
We visited the National Gallery which has many lovely paintings. The building itself is gorgeous as well. We did a lot of walking, just exploring. We had lunch at the Sherlock Holmes pub.
This afternoon we went out to the suburbs to the Dr. Who Shop and museum. It has a lot of props sand costumes from the show, including a Tardis. We took lots of photos for our kids since they are such huge Dr. Who fans!
Then we grabbed a quick dinner on our way to the theatre. We saw "As You Like It" at Shakespeare's Globe Theatre. The production was excellent and we really enjoyed it.
