After a tasty chinese dinner and some much needed sleep last night, we got up at 6am this morning to head off and explore London. I've been before, but to be honest its my favourite city in the world and I could spend months there without getting bored.
We left from Westcliff Station in Southend and it took about 45 minutes into the city. Starting out at the Tower of London, we walked along the Thames until we got to the Monument (apparently the tallest free standing stone column in the world), without actually knowing this fun fact, we decided to climb the damn thing lol. The view was at least worth it!.
From there we walked to St Pauls Cathedral, which I had seen before but never been inside
From there we crossed the Millenium footbridge and had lunch at a pub called 'The Founders Arms'. Then off to the London Eye, Big Ben, Westminster Abbey which I've been to before, so I wont elaborate and bore you. At Trafalgar Square I got to ride one of the Lions which was pretty cool haha. After a trip to a market, where I bought an amazing pulp fiction painting, we headed back to the hotel.
Feeling pretty tired after all of that and just settling in for an earlyish night. Up at 3:30am tommorow (arrrrggh!) to leave for our Paris daytrip.
More to come!!
