Greenwich Royal Observatory
From Greenwich we headed back to the cruise boat, this time disembarking at Westminster Pier. Dusk turned to night and the evening became chilly.
John took this panoramic view.

Big Ben is the nickname for the Great Bell of the clock at the north end of the Palace of Westminster in London, and often extended to refer to the clock and the clock tower. The tower is officially known as the Elizabeth Tower, renamed as such to celebrate the Diamond Jubilee of Elizabeth II. The tower holds the second largest four-faced chiming clock in the world. The tower was completed in 1858.
Back in our hotel room, we watched an episode of Downton Abbey that our friends back home will have to wait until January to see.
So excited to share our next day…
the most special day of our trip!
