Our last full day in London and we have only scratched the surface! Keen not to miss anything, we ramped it up a notch and planned the London Finalé down to the minute.
12 Hours later, we stumbled back to our apartment with a couple of instant dinners bought at the local supermarket as we were too tired to eat out. Did we succeed with our ambitious itinerary for the final day? Amazingly we achieved the impossible and pulled off the following itinerary (I think the photos prove we did).

0830 St. Paul’s opened up for the early birds
