Brexit, London Street Scenes and Red bus tour

Our visit to London was the week after the big Brexit vote in the UK. On the weekend following there was a fairly large rally/protest.  On the Saturday of our departure from our hotel the protest actually ended up shutting down many areas of London and many streets were closed for hours.  In fact there were no cabs allowed in near our hotel and our scheduled driver couldn’t reach our hotel either.  We ended up having to have one of the hotel bellman put all of our luggage on a cart and walk down to the end of the block to meet our driver where the road was open.

Then it took a long time to get out of central London because of all the street closures the traffic was at a standstill.  So we sat in traffic for quite some time.   All thanks to Brexit protesters. This was really the only Brexit related activities that we witnessed aside from a dedicated area of London where several media outlets were set up daily for reporting live.

Below are just some streets scenes of London during our trip.  (I am not captioning these photos so if you have any questions please leave a comment in the comment section.)
