Top Things to See in London in a Day: Westminister Abbey, Coca Cola London Eye, Buckingham Palace and Beyond - Exploring the Best of London by Nashville Barcelona Photographer Emily Anne Photo Art

Well, London. You might as well say that red is definitely its colour. :) Red phone booths, red buses, red accents on walls, royal guards in red... it really does suit the vibe of this intriguing place. Believe it or not, even if you have a layover in London for one day or only have a short stay in this top of the line city, it is very possible to see some of the biggest sites in a day.

These giant double decker tour buses are most definitely the iconic "London" look.

Almost everywhere you turn in London you'll find absolutely gorgeous architecture - it is a city filled with history and these old, magnificent cathedrals and churches you can find every few blocks throughout this gorgeous city- they are definitely fun to photograph. Can you imagine having a wedding inside -- or outside these crazy cathedrals?

We walked down past Westminster abbey and were pleasantly surprised to find royal guards on horses standing their ground - so neat. :) Be warned - Big Ben is under construction and, just like the Sagrada Familia in Barcelona, it won't be completed for a while so it is almost unrecognizable right now and a bit disappointing.

We took a stroll through Hyde Park on the way to Buckingham palace and met plenty of these little friends along the way. Hyde Park very much reminds me of the parks in London, Ontario Canada.

We knew we had reached Buckingham Palace as soon as we saw these gorgeous golden gates glimmering in the sunshine.

I am certain the Queen of England would have asked me to tea if she was home, she just must have been out doing her "queenly" duties. ;)

Again, if you do decide to see London, you can hit all these iconic points by walking, starting at Westminster, going to Buckingham Palace back across the bridge past St. James Park and crossing over onto the London Eye Bridge and over to the Natural History Museum by the fountains.

I heard this quote and couldn't resist... 

I’m leaving because the weather is too good. I hate London when it’s not raining.

Little Venice is a lovely little part of England further to the North! Absolutely gorgeous & there are lots of little shops to check out and brunch places- basically, London is the capital of brunch.
