When Nate and I first got to London, we decided it would be worth the money to buy the Royal Palace membership pass that gets you into all 5 royal palaces as many times as you want for 1 year. Besides going to the Tower of London and Kensington Palace, we hadn't gone to the other 3 that were included in our membership pass. I recently made a London Bucket List and getting to the other 3 palaces were on the top of this list. I am realizing everyday that my time in London is ticking by way too quickly for my liking, so I have made it a goal to do as many things on my bucket list as I can before we leave for good.
So on Saturday, I went to The Banqueting House on Whitehall. I have walked by this big building so many times, since it is only a 2 min walk away from my house, and I didn't even realize until recently that I was walking by one of the royal palaces and that it was even anything special. I think that is because it blends in with a lot of the other buildings on the street. Nothing too flashy about it, on the outside at least. So I decided to go check it out and see what it was all about.
I love living literally down the street from Trafalgar Square. There are always things going on there especially during the weekend. The square is considered to be the heart of London. On google maps, when you search for "London," the dot lands right at this square.
The same day that I went to the Banqueting House, there was a free outdoor concert at Trafalgar Square by the London Symphony Orchestra.........
