(257) Another landmark that has been seen and photographed countless times before on previous trips to London. Sheathed in scaffolding, as the tower undergoes a controversial renovation, which is set to take at least four years.

Had just been in the House Of Commons viewing gallery watching an interesting debate on the Casey Report: the social integration, or not, of immigrants throughout the land. Then back outside as Big Ben struck three o'clock.

After arriving at Waterloo Station, we walked along the south bank and stopped for a few photos of Big Ben all lit up at night.

Visted as we waited to see the Queen after the "Queens Speech" and also to see the Royal Marines Beat Retreat at Horse Guards.

The Pinnacle. Not the best shot of the Tower and Pinnacle, but at least we got the queen.

A quick walk past before attending a meeting nearby. The difficult part here is avoiding the crowds. Big Ben is looking pretty clean these days.

Worked in various buildings around here for many years. Now returning as a tourist. And to think that this intersected station is also a world-famous building!

Although I have been a lot closer at other times, today's log and view was from the South Bank outside the former County Hall.

Early start for the annual summer holiday drive to Chamonix. Down from Edinburgh the day before, several shandies then left Islington after about two hours sleep. We headed out over Westminster Bridge so I could have a goosey and say I'd seen London, lol.
