Churchill War Rooms

On our final day in London we visited the Churchill War Rooms. The war rooms became operational on August 27, 1939 just a week before Britain declared war on Germany and closed six years later on August 16, 1945.

Tower of London

In the late 1970s when John and I first visited England we toured the Tower of London. We've returned to the city many times since and until this year never considered a repeat performance. John, however, suggested we do it this time around and I am so glad he did. Like so many things (us, wine, to name a few) the tower exhibits have improved (and expanded) with age.

William Morris Gallery

Upon completion of our housesit in Attleborough we headed to London where we spent four incredible days. Our first stop on Saturday was the William Morris Gallery housed in the building where Morris lived as a teenager.

Wymondham Abbey

Wymondham is also home to Wymondham Abbey and its angel roof. I first read about it after our 2016 East Anglia visit and upon our return to housesit in Attleborough this year we were determined to check it out for ourselves.

Wymondham

Not far from Attleborough is the market town of Wymondham (pronounced Wind-um) and we were fortunate to visit on a sunny, albeit cold Tuesday afternoon. Getting there was easy via a 9-minute train ride from Attleborough.

Ely Cathedral

Last time we visited Ely Cathedral was in May 2016 (details HERE) and during our current housesit in Attleborough we made certain to return as Ely Cathedral is one of our favourites.

King's College Chapel in Cambridge

Our last trip to Cambridge in 2016 coincided with college exams which meant King's College Chapel was not open to visitors. Earlier this week we returned to Cambridge via train from Attleborough with one goal in mind - to cross King's College Chapel off our list!
