Cardiff - London 2015 - Part 4

Walking Around The City

Monday - May 4th 2014

Today was a bank holiday in the United Kingdom and that meant many people visiting the city. At first we planned to visit one of the many museums in London, but we decided against that idea. Instead we did a walking tour from the Waterloo train station to Houses of Parliament and then from Westminster Abbey to Buckingham Palace. There we watched the Changing of the Guards, but unfortunately we couldn't see that much and leaft early in favour for the Hard Rock Cafe. We spent some time there, enjoyed some drinks, and then we took the double decker bus to Picadilly Circus, where we had a late lunch at the Whole Foods Market, which by the way was not as great as the ones in the USA.

Afterwards we took the bus to Hyde Park, where we spent the rest of the afternoon. Later it started to rain and so we returned to our hotel and relaxed a bit. In the evening we went to a shopping center in Wandsworth and had dinner at Wagamama. Before we headed back to the hotel, we enjoyed some drinks at the Alma Pub.
