The 6 amWe have to take advantage of the day and today we have a very long route prepared that will take us through the best and most touristic places in London. Shower in our bathroom for half a person, hehe and breakfast at the hotel. What curious! We have gone down like in the movies, those stairs that take you to the basement of the picturesque house that houses our hotel. Going through the kitchen we have reached a very cozy dining room where we have been given a MACRO BREAKFAST. Think you feel like having breakfast ... well, believe us! We recommend you read our Article about him Balmoral House Hotel.IMPORTANT NOTE: This newspaper was made on the v1 of this website, when we wrote only and exclusively for the family, so it is not as complete as the rest. However, you will find more information in the travel guide to Stonehenge, Bath and Bristol of 2011 and we will be back soon to make a much more complete diary
The location we have is privileged to walk down the Hyde park, the largest outdoor enclosure in the city that occupies more than 145 ha. You can see the touch of autumn that leaves the park full of leaves. It is really admirable that a city of so many people can maintain such a magenous green area. The squirrels accompanied us on this pleasant walk ...
From there we went to give Welligton Arch, very close to our next destination, the Buchinkgham Palace. This palace, built in 1705, was the residence of the royal family in the past. It is part of the most monarchical London.
The change of guard has never seemed to us something that caught our attention too much, so we continued our route, stopping to buy a couple of waters (1.90 pounds), towards the Weminster area (Abbey, Palace, Parliament). Surely one of the visits that surprised us the most because although it is one of the icons of London, it is always relegated by others and architecturally it is spectacular, and we did not expect it so extremely magestuous.
While in full course, the Abbey breathed a university atmosphere of the old mystery movies, with those old cloisters in the heart of it. Despite the sun, it was cool at this time in the morning. An appetizing post of coffee He called us to take one (1.60 pounds).
The houses of parliament dazzled behind the Abbey, architecturally incredible. What a wonder of man.
In one of the facades we find the famous Big ben, which visually is gorgeous, but we expected it to sound otherwise. It was 11 o'clock when we passed by but it was nothing from another world. Of course, the photo is beautiful of all this part of Tamesis.
Surely, this area is one of the most beautiful in London. On one side of the river the Parliament, Big Ben, the Abbey ... and on the other ... !! THE EYE LONDON !!
It seems a lie but one thing that cost us the most was to find a simple bin. Searching, searching we took the opportunity to buy 15 postcards for 1 pound. It will be for the paranoia to attacks? It's almost impossible
He London Eye It is expensive, everything must be said, £ 15 per person. It lasts around 20 minutes and you have to queue around 15-20 minutes to buy the ticket and another 10 minutes to get on. (The traveler Pilar tells us that she can be booked from Spain and with a visit in Spanish. We have looked and for example from her OFFICIAL WEB like somewhere else like HERE it could. Thank you very much Pilar.) Many people go up at once, about 25 people in each cabin, perfectly equipped.
Of course, it is like going to Paris and not going up to the Eifell Tower, for us MUST for its wonderful views of the city ...
Keep going HERE…
