Trip To London Town


Around a month ago, I went to London with my family for a day trip, I haven't been to London since the Olympics was on last year, so I was very excited!

We got the tube from Epping right into the centre at Whitehall, where we visited the Imperial War Museum. This was a really valuable experience which educated me about how Winston Churchill lived in his underground bunker during the manic years of the war; it is amazing that such a big space was underground so near to the Houses of Parliament and Buckingham Palace. Myself and my family are very interested in history so this seemed the ideal way to kick off our day.

Next came some sight-seeing around Hyde Park, Trafalgar Square and Covent Garden. We nipped into lunch at Pret a Manger on the stand and followed this by a bit of shopping in Covent Garden which was lovely in the summer heat.

We then walked down to Piccadilly Circus and went to a Hagan Daaz restaurant which we had previously been to in Paris several years before and had the most amazing ice cream meal. This was followed by more wandering around the city and going to the Shard which is massive! We then got back on the very very very busy tube (it was a bank holiday) and headed back home! Here are some snaps from the day:
