Despite leaving Salisbury really early and very sleepy, by the time we arrived in London everybody came to life and became very excited, mainly about our first stop at the famous wax figures museum of Madam Tussauds. It was interesting to see how tall the actors, athletes and other celebrities are, in reality.
The guided tour by Martin started at the Parliament Square Garden where you can see the Houses of Parliament, Big Ben, and also Westminster Abbey. We continued our walk to No.10 Downing Street, the residence and office of the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom.
After taking some pictures of the friendly birds and squirrels in St. James’s Park, we arrived at Buckingham Palace, the residence of the Royal Family. On this particular day we noticed the Queen was at home since the flag was up!
We walked back to Trafalgar Square via Leicester Square where we reached the nice, roofed Apple Market of Covent Garden where the students had free time for shopping.
The long walks were exhausting, but London really has to be visited when you are in the UK and it was definitely worth it!
