We went to the Tower of London via platform 9 ¾ at Kings Cross station. Platform 9 ¾ is the platform that Harry (Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s stone) catches the train to Hogwarts. At Platform 9 ¾ there is a trolley in the wall because Harry had to run through the wall to get to Platform 9 ¾ .
We stopped at Baker St – the home address of Sherlock Holmes.
When we got to the Tower of London, we saw a huge amount of ceramic poppies which represents the anniversary of WWI and the amount of people who died. We went into the Medieval Tower, we saw the living conditions that the king had and videos about the history of the tower. I went to check out the ravens. They just walked around and not scared of people at all. We then went to the White Tower which displayed all the armour, weapons and the royal clothing. As we got out we were very lucky because just as we got out the changing of the guards had just started.
Then we went to Hamleys, the biggest toy shop in the world. It was so crowded with people blowing up balloons, showing off different toys. So much happening there that you could spend the whole day in the store. We decided to go up to the top and worked our way down. There was a huge range of toys, games, and novelty items. The ages of the customers went from infants to the elderly.
After we went to Selfridges down Oxford St, past Liberty, as my mum wanted to check it out. They already have a floor dedicated to Xmas shopping.
