England: London Day 4 (and some observations)

We didn't see and do as much today as yesterday, so not as many pictures. We spent the morning in the National Gallery...a beautiful (free) art museum.

We visited the John Soane museum (another freebie) which you can learn more about here. After that, we walked back to our hotel via Oxford Street, famous for its shopping. (Right up my alley!)
