My Weekend

On Saturday, I visited the Royal Mews (also information here) and saw a number of State carriages, including the Gold State Coach used for Coronations.

Then, I stopped at the Guards Museum (easily identifiable by the small armored (armoured?) car outside. The museum traces the history of the five regiments of Foot Guards.

Next, I had a bit of a wander over to Covent Garden where I saw this group of English Civil War reenactors.

Finally, I headed back to Buckingham Palace where I had a ticket for the Summer Opening of the State Rooms. I was able to see a number of wonderful rooms and then have a short wander through the back gardens. (Sorry, I couldn't take pictures inside.)

On Sunday, I had a short walk around Windsor Castle and took a few photos before heading up the Long Walk to see part of the Windsor Half Marathon.

I also saw Lord Sebastian Coe, former Olympic medallist and currently head of the London Olympic Committee for the Olympic Games.

(London photos are here. Windsor photos are here.)
