London

London  is the capital and largest city of England and the United Kingdom, with the largest municipal population in the European Union. Standing on the River Thames in the south-east of England, at the head of its 50-mile (80 km) estuary leading to the North Sea, London has been a major settlement for two millennia. Londinium was founded by the Romans. The City of London, London’s ancient core − an area of just 2.9 km2 and colloquially known as the Square Mile − retains boundaries that follow closely its medieval limits. The City of Westminster is also an Inner London borough holding city status. Greater London is governed by the Mayor of London and the London Assembly.

In connection with my daughter’s graduation at the Hertfordshire university, we stayed in London for one night before going home.  (An earlier boyfriend of hers also joined us for the ceremony).

1-day tour to Hatfield with my daughter to look at Hatfield university, and enjoy the rest of the day in London. We arrived Stansted airport in the morning, and returned to Norway next morning after staying overnight in an airport hotel.

One day tour to Hatfield with my daughter to look at Hatfield university, and enjoy the rest of the day in London. On our way to the central district we had a quick tour of the British Museum – especially to see the Egyptian collection, because we had already seen the collections in Cairo and Paris.
