Location: london, England

MapWe headed into London for a day of Touristy attractions. After our 1 Hour train ride into the city we started off with seeing the London Bridge and the outside of the Tower of London.
Seeing as Kyle and I had not heard a lot about the Tower of London we decided to spend that money on something that we could relate to as it did or was going to cost a fair bit when you convert back to Aus Dollar.
We headed over to Hyde Park, Londonís largest park at 180 Hectares. Although not as large as central park in Manhattan which we visited a few weeks earlier it was still Very large to walk around, although we didnít I can imagine.
After a Great Lunch at a place dad and mum use to eat at when they were living in London about 17 years ago we ventured on to Piccadilly Circus, Trafalgar Square and Oxford street, we did not however get to see Mr. Monopoly in his little Tuxedo though.

The Queen was busy at the time when we visited her Palace but she did apologize and we got to see the silly looking guards marching up and down front of the Palace and then stand completely still for another half hour, what an interesting life.

After the Full packed day we relaxed on our Aerial tour of London on the London Eye, which is a really Large Ferris Wheel that goes up, and up, and up and you can see most of the sites of London, Big Ben (which we did on the way to the London Eye), the Buckingham Palace, Hyde park and that strange looking skyscraper that looks like a Gherkin?
