I had one day stopover at London before I headed to Iceland. A very nice morning indeed, I strolled through the usual London tourist spots. Starting from Waterloo Station, to Big Ben, Westminster Abbey, Buckingham Palace, then to St. James's Park, through Trafalgar Square, down Strand, then Fleet, St Paul's Cathedral, Temple Bar, London Stock Exchange, Museum of London, then back to Oxford Circus.

My day at London was quite fulfilling. It reminded me years ago I was here and there.
