It’s half term here this week, so we’ve had a little mini break holiday sightseeing for a few days in the Big Smoke (also known as London.)
Setting off here in the North was fine, and we got there with no problems.
Typical, though, that the one day we’re due to travel home there’s a huge power failure with trains travelling North all cancelled.
So, if like us, you got stuck, delayed and cancelled on your journey home yesterday, you can blame me….. I’m a travel jinx.
We managed to fit in loads of sightseeing in the few days we were there, though.
We saw the ravens inside the Tower of London:
As well as lots of beautiful, sparkly jewels, crowns and tiaras but obviously no photos of them are allowed to be taken for security reasons.
This bloke may have had something to say if I’d have tried and I didn’t fancy risking upsetting him:
So I’ll just say they were very pretty, and I bought myself a nice sparkly tiara type hair pin from the gift shop.
We went on the London Eye for a birds eye view of London and the Thames (I managed to ignore the fact we were so high up in the air to have a good look around and take some photos:)
Big Ben from the Eye
Boats along the River Thames
Buckingham Palace from the Eye
Apparently her Maj was in that day. You’d have thought she would have come out with some Earl Grey and a plate of cucumber sandwiches for us hungry tourists. Ah well….. nice house, anyway.
I’m going to have to go on another sightseeing tour soon, just to try and fit in all the other things we didn’t get chance to see.
The small people are desperate to visit M&M World again anyway. Four whole floors of chocolate? They thought it was Christmas.
