London June 6th 2012
After a very early start this morning 2.30 for me and 4.30 for Simon we headed off for a local breakfast at a corner cafe in Camden. We then headed onto the Big Bus company hop on hop off bus around London visiting such things along the way as the Royal Courts of Justice where the Rupert Murdoch enquiry was held, The Tower of London where we hopped off and jumped on the boat cruise along the River Thames visiting Houses of Parliament, Big Ben, Westminster Abbey (refer to Leanne's pictures even though we weren't together we obviously viewed the same sites) . We then headed onto Buckingham Palace and was very disappointed as it was all blocked off due to the Queens jubilee and recent concert We then jumped back on the bus and went through the wealthy parts of London which included the Intercontinental Hotel where our fellow travellers are resting their weary heads......., the Ritz, Park Lane and then into a chaotic Oxford Street. Simon had to hold me back from jumping overboard and doing what I do best "shopping". Tomorrows another day...... Our final resting place was Picadilly Circus where we jumped off the bus and joined the masses in the underground all heading home from work. Tonight we will head to one of the many local corner pubs for a drink and pub meal - that's what you do when in London isn't it??
