Westminster & Big Ben London
Heading off from Gobowen Station we headed down the tracks towards Marylebone Station London. Once there we caught the tube to Tower Hill having to change onto the circular line at Baker Street. We were luckily enough to be helped by a kind Irish Man who was heading home to Ireland catching the train to the airport form Liverpool Street Station. The Irish man helped us to find the right tubes and told us how many stops it was till we got off the tube.
We reached our destination without a problem, even found our hotel easy. After dropping our bags and freshening up we headed out for a look around.
We wandered over to Tower bridge and the Tower which was near by. Next we headed for something to eat. The local pub The Miniors was offering 2 for one meals which were quite cheap we headed in for some tea. Afterwards it was starting to get dark so we headed back to the hotel.
Next morning we were up and out early.
We headed to the tube station and bought a all day ticket, which was quite cheap. Heading on the tube we got off at Westminster. Coming out of the tube I said to Aaron I wanted to show him Big Ben. Wandering were it was Aaron suddenly said its behind you dizzy blond or what !
We wandered around Westminster we looked at the sites. The London Eye could be clearly seen across the river. Here Aaron was able to see Big Ben, Houses of Parliament and Westminster Abbey. After taking some pictures we moved on. ( blog above )
