Gilda's Photos from London, England

Here are photos from my recent trip to London, England where I facilitated training programs for a global client  - participants came from throughout the U.K. and Belgium, Italy, Germany, Spain and Denmark. I had a few days to tour London before the training began.

At the gates of Buckingham Palace,
right before the Changing of the Guard.

Westminster Abbey -  one week after the Royal Wedding,
they were still removing viewing stands and press boxes
from the streets in front
A replica of an officer guarding the Cabinet Room at the Churchill War Rooms,
the underground bunker from which Winston Churchill ran the British Government
during the Second World War - one of my favorite places in London

Lovely gardens at Kensington Palace - much of the Palace is being restored
(as are other popular sites) in anticipation of the 2012 Olympic Games

Tea at the Orangery at Kensington Palace -
scones with jam and cream, cucumber tea sandwiches, biscuits, tarts
(yes, I ate it all!)
