Saturday morning at around 3 A.M I arrived at London's very own Heathrow Airport in Western London.

Being as tired I as I was from my long flight to London from Colorado I went ahead and went to the hotel I was staying at, The Sani Hotel Which is also located in West London. Once I arrived at the hotel I was warmly greeted and was shown to my room and then I slept the night away. I got up the next morning and made my plans to visit Buckingham Palace and Big Ben. Big Ben was amazing and i learned so much factual information from wikipedia like Big Ben is the nicknamed for the Great Bell of the clock at the north end of the Palace of Westminster in London, and is generally extended to refer to the clock and the clock tower as well. The tower was completed in 1858 and has become one of the most prominent symbols of both London and England. After i was done visiting Big Ben i drove to Buckingham Palace and took a tour. Did you know that Buckingham Palace was originally known as Buckingham House, the building which forms the core of today's palace was a large townhouse built for the Duke of Buckingham in 1705 on a site which had been in private ownership for at least 150 years. It was subsequently acquired by George III in 1761. And that was the end of our first day in London.350px-Buckingham_Palace,_London_-_April_2009.jpg220px-Clock_Tower_-_Palace_of_Westminster,_London_-_September_2006-2.jpg
