Where To Go in London

Back in May 2012 – a year before I started blogging regularly – I spent a month in London, England for what Vanderbilt calls a Maymester. I took a class on the changes that happened in literature due to the religious changes during the Tudor period, so it was basically heaven for me. I was giddy the entire time, and I wish I could go do it all over again. So today I thought I would look back at the trip and share where in London (and the London area) I would go again.
