London Sightseeing with Dan & Netty

London Sightseeing 

There was no stopping us this holiday as we jumped straight on the tube and headed to Trafalgar Square which was bustling with other tourists.  

We couldn't not pop into the world famous toy store Hamleys, where we explored all 7 floors,  bursting full of toys and fun gadgets. 


A trip on the London Eye was a must and what a beautiful day it was for it. As we slowly moved, getting higher and higher we could see for miles across the city. 


We made our way up to the Sky Garden which is the highest garden in England. Once again we were treated to incredible views.


We loved being able to wander the streets of London. It is defintey the best way to see things. Walking across Millennium Bridge toward St Paul's Cathedral was something we would remember forever. 



Now we felt like proper tourists as we walked along The Mall towards the infamous landmark, Buckingham Palace. 

We continued walking through St James's Park and onto Horse Guards Parade where we had to stop for a picture with the guards. 
                                         
We also visited 10 Downing Street and paid our respects to all the soldiers who fought in the war. 

Our final trip of the day was an open top boat cruise along the Thames.
 
As we sailed along, we spotted all the landmarks, but a highlight of the trip was going under Tower Bridge. 


Another must when in London is visiting the world luxurious department store. Harrods with five floors of lavish gifts, clothes and homeware for us to explore. We felt very posh indeed. We all had to buy something as a memento, and we spent our money wisely on some traditional shortbread cookies.
