We were lucky to spend 4 nights in London and during the day we took the tube to get
around places in London.
The London Eye was a great place to be able to see all the significant landmarks
in London. We also had an introduction to the art of queuing. Interesting to see that
some people from other countries didn’t think that they needed to stand in line like everyone
David worked a number of years ago in Convent Garden area so we went back
to see where he worked,.and found it was all boarded up.
Before we left we were happy to help a busker, the Mighty Gareth, form a crowd and to
entertain us with his routine. A few coins for his hat were well earned.
Seeing Buckingham Palace and the Beefeater Guards was very special.
Thousands of people waited with us, then we walked up The Mall.
The guards and the horses that came around the square were very regal.
A visit to the tower of London and seeing the Crown Jewels another highlight.
Amelia will always remember her 11th birthday.
Where do you think we went with a writer in the family?
Yes Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre. Matt our guide was a character, and gave
Amelia a few jibes in good fun. We learnt some interesting information.
Enjoying our travels.
Julie, David and Amelia
