The bells of St. Paul’s Cathedral were pealing beautifully as we crossed the Millennium Bridge, walking in the direction of the Globe Theater. Did theater goers in Shakespeare’s time hear the same bells on their way to the theater? Miraculously for us we arrived, with five minutes to spare, for the last tour of the day.
Most tourist attractions did not open until 10:30 – 11am. Only one, the Sherlock Holmes Museum opened at 9:30am. So we decided this would be our starting place, that is, after a stop at the small French bakery on our street corner for second breakfast.
