A day out in London doing the touristy sights

Jo W decided it was time to see some London sights for the first time after being here for nearly 18 months :)

Buckinham Palace

We went and saw the changing of the guards at Buckingham Palace. There were heaps of people around as clearly it’s a popular thing to do. It was the first time I’d seen the palace or the men with the red coats and big tall fluffy hats.

The great thing about London is every thing is really close. We walked from Buckingham Palace to the Westminster Church, to Big Ben, to the London Eye and then on to Trafalgar Square. It’s all so close to each other.

Big Ben is very cool. My bus goes passed it and the London eye each day and I still look at the big clock each time. It’s got a lot of detail and looks great in day, as the gold plated parts shine and it also looks great at night too with all the lights on.

I just love the London Eye. I think it looks great and I’m still not bored of it. It really is a true icon of London. We didn’t go on it that day, I think all of us had already been on it before.

I’ve always wanted to go to Trafalgar Square because my Dad showed me photos of him in Trafalgar square before I left. I thought I’d take it upon myself to keep history going and visit it as well.

Jo was very excited about all of the sights. She was always asking me to get a photo of her against the sights. All in all, we had a great day and it was long over due for all of us… especially Jo 😉
