Day 2

I woke up at 4am so my body clock wasn’t still adjusted but everyone else had a reasonable sleep in. off for a busy one today as we get an overview of London.

Our first experience was to grab the tube. Again luckily the station only had the one line, which was the Central line so we had a 50/50 chance of catching it in the right direction. Got to use our Oyster cards and that all went OK. Talk about blowing a gale as we descended into the depths using steps and escalators. Got down there and there was a train immediately, which we got on and went to Marble Arch, which was only a couple of stops away.

Got off and managed to find the stop for the London Tour bus, which again came straight away so we hopped on with our headphones as they had commentary on all the sights we would see….and there were plenty..from Big Ben, Nelson’s Column, Regent Street, Picadilly Circus, Thames, London Eye, Tower of London….whew!

Got off in front of Big Ben and hopped onto a cruise boat which travelled down to Greenwich.
