9/11 Memorial - Grosvenor Square - London. :)

The US Military Cemetry at Madingley near Cambridge, has the largest
number of US Graves in England - it's shown in the first set of pics.

The Acre of Land given to the US people in commemoration of Kennedy
is at Runnymede in Surrey - where the Magna Carta was signed - and
the other US Memorial at Runnymede is the American Bar Associations
memorial recognising the freedoms and rights enshrined within the Magna
Carta and it's influence on US Law.

Couple more of Washington Old Hall - England

President Jimmy Carter visited the Hall back in 1976
to mark 200 years of American Independence.
