UK Trip Day 2: June 28, 2003

June 29, 2003 @ 17:57 By: gordon Category: Travelling, UK Trip 2003

Saturday morning started at 2pm. Except for Rob when the first postman arrived at 8:30am and the second one arrived at 9am.

We headed into downtown London via the train from Wandsworth Common to Victoria. From there, we headed to Hyde Park. Hyde Park is the largest park in London. Here is a link about it.

From Hyde Park, we walked around the Albert Memorial, across the street from Royal Albert Hall. We caught a bus which took us past the offices of the Royal Geographical Society.

From there we headed to Piccadilly Circus where we grabbed a bite to eat at that fine English eatery Pizza Hut.

We visited a store called The Gadget Shop where we played with a variety of toys, including an electronic roulette game that shocks the finger of one of the players. First person to flinch loses. Made me think of the game from Never Say Never Again.

From there we went to Westminster by tube and saw Big Ben, Whitehall, Downing Street and had a drink at a pub not too far from Trafalgar Square.

We returned home from there, taking a bus that gave us a splendid view of MI-5′s new headquarters building.
