Weekend in London!!!!!!!

In the city!!!!!!!πŸ’…πŸΌπŸ˜ŽπŸŒƒ

sunny 15 °C

On Saturday morning we were all up very early catching the 5:47 am train from Cardiff to London Paddigton, On the train journey Em and I were sitting together and Carter, Mum and Dacu were sitting together. We all ate a mixture of danishes, Bacon rolls and Grapes!!! Our train arrived at about 8 am!! We figured out what we were doing and hopped on one of the big bus tours around London. We stayed on the bus until we got over the tower bridge, Here are some photos of the bus tour.90_IMG_6901.jpg90_IMG_6933.jpg90_IMG_6898.jpgIMG_6929.jpg90_IMG_6935.jpgIMG_6906.jpgFrom there we walked to the Tower of London and had a tour from one of the beefeaters who lived there!!!! ( To become a beefeater you had to serve 22 years in one of the three forces ( for your first eighteen you couldn't make a single mistake, you also had to get a speacil type of medal which they all had on their clothing ). He was really funny and he told us lots of information in only an hour. The history of the tower is really disgusting and lots of people died.After the tour we went and saw he raven which are believed to protect the Crown Jewels πŸ‘‘πŸ‘‘πŸ’πŸ’ and the white tower( In the Tower of London there are three towers the white tower, The inner tower and the outer tower. After the ravens we went to see THE CROWN JEWELS!!!!!!!!!!!πŸ‘‘πŸ‘‘πŸ‘‘πŸ‘‘πŸ’πŸ’πŸ’πŸ’ You couldn't take any pictures of them but they were in a big container which had 4 tone doors on the entrance and the exit.😾 My favourite jewels were Queen Victorias her's were small but heavely blinged. The was lots of information about the corination and what was used for different things like the plates and bowls on the table or the jugs of water πŸ’¦. There were heaps of golden staffs and the different swords that showed what rank you were and if you could sit in the good seats or not.

After we had finished the tour we grabbed some lunch at a Wagamama restaurant. Everybody loved it and said that if they could go again they would!!!!!!
