London Calling (A Tourist’s Day Out)

Our 2nd day in London was the busiest of the week and involved a heck of a lot of walking round central London. We had booked to go to some of the most well known touristy spots, starting (and finishing) at the London Eye.

Our first stop of the day!

After the London Eye we headed over the road and waited in a very long queue to get into Westminster Abbey. It was only when we got to the front that we realised we were in the wrong queue and would have to wait for another half an hour in a different queue. And with that realisation, that was the end of our trip to Westminster Abbey. After taking a few pictures of the outside of the Abbey, we made our way to our next destination.

Next stop, Tower of London! After a brief fish and chips stop, we went for a wander. Unfortunately the queue to see the crown jewels had reached the 3 hour mark and neither of us were willing to wait in a queue again after Westminster Abbey!

This sign was the butt of many a joke because we are in fact, children inside (hehe, butt).

Next it was off to St. Paul’s Cathedral (see what I mean about a busy day?).

After admiring the blue trees, it was back off to the London Eye to see the city at night. Unfortunately, I haven’t quite mastered the art of taking pictures at night so there aren’t many pictures of the night trip on the London Eye.
