Weekend in London

A couple weeks ago my brother was over for a visit. It is so nice having family over... but makes us miss home so much!
During his stay, we took a quick trip over to London to show him the sites. It was such a fun weekend!
We managed to cover all the touristy attractions, including Big Ben, The Parliament Buildings, London Eye, Kensington Palace, Westminster Abbey, St. James' Cathedarl, Soho District and Abbey Road.

The last two times we've been over to London, we've stayed at Park Plaza Westminster Bridge. I highly recommend this hotel. The rooms were very nice and it's in the perfect location for walking around site seeing & taking the Tube.
