Three Must See Sight-Seeing Places in London

Hi there! Thanks so much for featuring me on your blog and being part of THE FAERIE RING blog tour put on by the Mundie Moms!

There are so many fantastic, awesome places to go in London it’s hard to just pick three but here’s where I’d start:

Windsor Castle. Windsor is about thirty mile outside of London and has been inhabited by royalty for 1,000 years – longer than any castle in Europe. You can walk around the outside and through many parts of the castle and it is amazing to think of the history that has occurred right where you’re standing.

The Queen resides at Windsor a lot of the time and entertains heads of state there, so you can walk through many of the rooms that are decorated with jaw-dropping opulence.

St. Georges Chapel is also on the grounds of Windsor Castle. The architecture is beautiful and the chapel is filled with history. Many kings and other royalty lie in rest there and you can see their sarcophagi or walk over tombstones embedded in the floor. It is really quite amazing.

Westminster Abbey. Located across the street from Westminster Palace, the Houses of Lords and Big
Ben,(which is a side trip all on its own….) the Abbey is a fantastic structure with breath-taking Gothic
architecture. There is SO MUCH to see in the Abbey – it’s mind-boggling! Kings, queens, statesmen,
soldiers, poets, priests and heroes are all laid to rest there – plus all the ceremonies, both joyful and sad, that have occurred within its walls. The stone floors have grooves worn in them from being walked over for so many centuries.

The London Eye. The Eye offers an unbelievable vista overlooking all of London- you’re in a very
comfortable car that you can walk around and see 360 degrees. You’re pretty close to Westminster
Palace and Big Ben, as well as the Thames, so you get a birds-eye view of it all – and let me tell you – it’s breathtaking!

Thank you so much for featuring me on your blog and for being part of THE FAERIE RING tour that the AWESOME Mundie Moms are putting on!!!

London, 1871
Orphaned and picking pockets in London’s Charing Cross station to support not only herself, but her ‘family’ of orphans, sixteen year-old Tiki steals the Queen’s ring and thinks she’s solved their problems. That is, until Rieker, a pickpocket from the North End, suspects her in the theft and tells her that the ring is really a reservoir that holds a truce between the British and Faerie courts.

When he warns her that the fey will do anything, including murder, to recover the ring, Tiki is unsure whether to believe him or not. To complicate matters, Rieker seems to know something about the unusual birthmark on Tiki’s wrist. But when Tiki and her family are threatened the game changes.
