After a long sleep we were ready to start the day in London. We went on the Big Bus which is just around the corner. On the Big Bus we saw the London landmarks such as the Marble Arch, Big Ben, London Eye, Westminster Abbey, The Gherkin, The Shard, Tower Bridge, Tower of London and many more.
London streets were so busy. All the buildings were old and beautiful. There is one shop I really want to go to called Hamleys, which is a famous British toy shop. My dad promised to take me there tomorrow.
We went to Buckingham Palace to see the changing of the guards. There was a lot of police on horses to control the huge crowd. After a long wait we managed to see the guards in red uniforms wearing tall funny hats.
In the afternoon we went for a river cruise down the Thames. We went under the Tower Bridge and were very lucky because we saw it opening right in front of us. The boat took us to Greenwich. There was the Royal Maritime museum and we went to the Royal Observatory Greenwich which is the Prime Meridian ( 0.0 longitude) also where GMT (Greenwich Mean Time) originated
After we wondered about a bit longer we caught the light rail and the metro back to the apartment. We got dinner at The Bag o’ Nails, which is an old traditional English pub very close to our apartment. We had pie and mash and fish and chips. My dad had a selection of cask ales.
