Hi guys and today I’m going to be blogging about my trip to London. As you know, London is the capital of England and United Kingdom. At its centre stand the imposing Houses of Parliament, the iconic ‘Big Ben’ and Westminster Abbey. Across the River Thames, the London Eye provides fantastic views of the South Bank and the city.


On the 1st October I visited London with my family. We stayed in a hotel and could see the London eye in the distance, which was an amazing sight at night when the lights were turned on. I went on a bus tour around the city, passing the clock tower, Houses of Parliament, St Pauls Cathedral and lots of other fascinating buildings. We saw street entertainers in Covent Garden which were really good, apart from when one man dragged me up in front of everyone, which was really embarrassing! After that, we travelled back to the hotel where we had dinner.


Buckingham Palace was the next thing on our list. We arrived just in time to watch the guards change parade, this included sights of horses and marching bands. It was heaving with exited people and tourists. In order to see, I had to hang off the railings. Once it had finished we explored looking around St James Park. Watching the birds and ducks by the stream squirrels were climbing up people’s legs! It’s like they were trained! Next we travelled back into the centre where we went on a boat tour along the river Thames, learning loads of new facts about the exciting city. Venturing along the river, we saw the Shard, The Tower of London, ITV Studios and many more. One of the best facts, for me, was bout Big Ben. Did you know that you can’t actually see Big Ben, it is the bell inside of the clock tower!

I really enjoyed London for it is so big and has lots of things to look at and do. The only downside for me is that it’s really busy and heaving no matter what the weather is like.
