I took the train from Paris to London for a weekend in 2011 with a few friends. We had a few free days in our study abroad itinerary and wanted to explore a new city. When we arrived we walked around the city doing our touristy thing. We went to Buckingham Palace, Parliament, and walked all over the river Thames. My friend Julie actually had a connection to stay on the grounds of Windsor Palaceso we stayed there for two nights. St. George’s Chapel was one of my favorite sites because it’s the burial site of King Henry VIIIwho I had just read a lot about and a lot of other famous royalties. We had our own private tour during sunset and it was such a unique experience. We weren’t allowed to take photos because it was private property.
