London, England is another location I want to visit. I just want to see the city lights over there, ride on one of the red double deck buses, ride on the London Eye, or even see Big Ben! One day I hope to visit and if I end up loving it over there, I think I might end up living there! :)

Tower of London and London Bridge
Tower Bridge - was built to allow increasing pedestrian & road traffic to cross the Thames. Being further downstream than London Bridge; it also allowed tall-masted ships to pass underneath. Horace Jones came up with the idea of a 'bascule' bridge ('bascule' is French for 'see-saw'). It took 8 years to build, 4 years just for the piers it stands on. Without Scuba gear, divers wore leather 'wetsuits', metal helmets & used airtubes to breathe. SE1, Tower Hill Tube. By The Telegraph, 2011.
St. Pancras Station/Chambers - after its 800 million pounds renovation, it was recently described as "..the world's most wonderful railway station." The Renaissance Hotel is suitably grand and it's the main terminus for high-speed rail links to Paris and the rest of Europe. N1, King's Cross/St. Pancras Tube.

St. Pancras Station, London England Eras of Elegance - Victorian Architecture
St. Pancras Station was recently described as "..the world's most wonderful railway station." The station was designed by William Henry Barlow who, in conjunction with Rowland Mason Ordish created the single-span to avoid the foundations of the roof interfering with the space beneath, and to simplify the design, and minimise cost. It was the largest such structure in the world at the time of its completion.

Westminster Cathedral - often missed by visitors, this striking neo-Byzantine style cathedral was completed in 1903 and is home to the Catholic Church in England and Wales. The campanile (bell tower) is open to the public and offers tremendous views over Westminster. SW1, Victoria Tube.

Portobello Market - home of the antiques market, pastel coloured townhouses and fresh fruit stalls. Hugh Grant wooed Julia Roberts with his foppish stammering in the movie "Notting Hill". His shop was along Portobello Road and all the outdoor scenes were shot on location. W10 Ladbroke Grove Tube. By JenniPenni on Flickr, 2008.
