Good inside location for a cool day. Nice cafe. Very iconic. If only go to London once, would recommend this be on the "must see".

This is an amazing place that I could spend hours and still not see it all. Book your tickets in advance and skip the long line. Also, there is an app you can download on your phone with the audio guide. Very useful.

architecture is, the wonders of Mother Nature are
