This week my daughter Alice and I had a day out in London, thanks to a special offer train ticket if we travelled off-peak. It takes about 75 minutes to get there, and we arrived at around 11am. I know London fairly well – many many years ago when I was 18, it was my dream to live and work in London. So I found myself a secretarial job, and shared a flat with three strangers for two years. Since then, I have always enjoyed going back to London, usually for shopping, to see a theatre show, or just sightseeing.
Alice and I caught the water-bus from The London Eye to Greenwich.
A river trip is a great way to see lots of London landmarks. We passed close to the houses of Parliament and Big Ben, we saw St Paul’s cathedral, the Shard, Tower Bridge, Canary Wharf, HMS Belfast, The Globe Theatre.
I’ll tell you what we did when we got off the water bus, in my next blog!
