Thank you

Westminster Abbey is absolutely stunning, and i advise all to visit, expensive but worth every penny! So much history for not just the UK but the world.

Thanks, i loved the atmosphere Andre_idol but not the cold!

The snow was a surprise and while pretty a nightmare from Garde De Nord (especially as no taxis, so had to catch the Metro which was difficult to understand). We were rewarded with this sight as was staying on thr Champs Elyses for the first two nights
