Tower of London & Christmas Tea

Today we had a full day of London history and traditions. We headed off bright and early to tour the Tower of London and then finished up our afternoon at the Dorchester hotel for Christmas High Tea.

Tower Bridge.

This is what all of the christmas trees look like in London...I love their shape, short and stubby.

At noon we headed to The Dorchester Hotel for a festive High Tea. They are currently celebrating their 80th anniversary. We learned on our bus tour that The Dorchester hotel hosted Sly Stalone's wedding and two of Elizabeth Taylor's honeymoons.

The beautiful promenade where we took our tea.

Kicking off the holiday weekend with some champagne.

The finger sandwiches, scones with clotted cream and jam, and our sweet desserts. YUM.

 We had a great English day out and about in London.
