While we did not make it to Baker Street and the Sherlock Holmes Museum, we did make a point to lunch at the Sherlock Holmes Pub: truth - I ordered only "chunky chips" and slathered them in ketchup. Not too many options at this establishment.
Our very last night, we made our way up to Abbey Road. It is an actual intersection, and the picture I took of my brother on his phone turned out the best, but I don't have that image - but you get the idea. Also, I photographed complete strangers because it was funny (welcome to my blog, people I don't know!)

Abbey Road Studios (site of the album recording) is covered in signage
Earlier in the trip, when we had the car, we drove to Warner Brothers Studio London. They have turned the lots where they filmed Harry Potter into a tourist attraction, leaving the set and costumes, as well as special effects, available for our perusal. It is a functioning studio, with back lots and productions of other films still in progress. If you are not a HP fan, feel free to scroll to the bottom! (I read the series and saw the movies, as did my brother!)
We also went to King's Cross Station and found Platform 9 3/4, but I'll save that photo for the bonus edition. Ha!
This weekend will consist of two posts: Food Edition & Our First Day Trip: Windsor
