Tentative Itinerary 2015: Day Seven

I'll bet you didn't know that Rob is related to some very important people in British history.  Well, he is. Which his why we are heading to the National Portrait Gallery one day.

We'll seek out the Tudor paintings (of course!) but we will also be seeking some very specific portraits.  I am pretty sure we will see William Cecil, aka Lord Burghley but Rob is more interested in seeing a portrait of Robert Cecil, 1st Earl of Salisbury.

Then it's just a half mile walk to the Walking Tour because at 2pm there's a Rock n Roll themed walking tour.  How perfect is that?

 The walks are about 2 hours so we'll be done for the day by 4pm.  We may borrow a movie (you can do that at the hotel) or go on a pub crawl (Rob doesn't drink but he thinks it would be fun to take me on one anyway) or maybe we'll find something else fun and fantastic to do.

BTW, weather it rains or not, we're doing this tour.  We don't care.  It's only offered on Fridays and we'll only be there on Friday so this is our one and only chance.  We'll also be within walking distance of the British Museum so we may end up going back there to catch something we may have missed or revisit something we loved.  The museums are open late on Friday so we'll have options.


  1. Happy Friday, Satia! These walking tours sound wonderful.

    1. Suko, I didn't expect to enjoy the walking tour as much as I did but it was great. I wish we'd spent more time at the National Gallery though. Rob felt the same way. So many great pieces of work to explore.
