26 July 2010 – part 1

Touring around the traps in London

We hopped out of bed bright and early to go on an organised bus tour. The tour travelled around all the famous sights of London: Big Ben, Westminster abbey, Houses of Parliament, the changing of the guard ceremony at Buckingham Palace and various other palaces, Trafalgar Square, a traditional English pub lunch, St Paul’s Cathedral, the Tower of London and a cruise down the Thames. We met a couple of Aussies on the bus (of course!) and had a great day out and about in old London town.

This post is made up of pics as I reckon you’re probably tired of reading all my text (and it takes a long time to write!)
