Bath Abbey was an old building. The first King of England was crowned here in AD973. An early Gothic building....as they do not allow pictures inside the abbey so I took the third one here.....  Grin

It also has a lot of buildings in arc shape. The first one is called the circus which 3 arc-shaped buildings forming a circle surrounding a round-about. The second picture is the Royal Crescent, a famous building with a huge arc......

Stonehenge......there is no need to describe what it is and you will know when you see the pictures......You need to pay for entering the area of Stonehenge but the good thing is that the structure is fenced off so that you can take clear pictures.

With different conditions of sky, it is a good place to practice different photo taking methods.

After visiting Stonehenge, we headed back to London in the evening and walked across the Millennium Bridge. It was at evening time but the sky was still bright and clear. We took a picture of the London Eye.

After dinner, the so-called magic moment came, i.e. sunset time. Some professional photographers told me that you can only have 15-20 minutes each day and we just arrived at Trafalgar Square. I took a picture of the National Gallery. Is that magic enough?

Because of the new born Royal child, later known as George, the London Eye was put Red-White-Blue colour on instead of a single colour for celebration. We were lucky to take this..

Day 4 was our London day, we spent our whole day in London, shopping, sight-seeing, museum visiting, lots of fun. We had a good breakfast at Portobello Market. It is a market having over 100 years and now it is like a flea market.
