Hey,

I had another day out in London today (I don't know why I like it so much seen as I only live about 60 miles away from it lol)

It was fantastic, I might be going with my friend into London again soon as well. :)

Anyways, here's the pictures, enjoy.
(I got quite a few of them)

Yeah, I went there this summer... amazing architecture!


EDIT: Wow, I just realized: I'm a historian now! Woohoo!



Anyways, I really enjoyed it, although I would have like to visit some of the museums... I just had a rough tour of the city.

I went in the summer as well, in fact I think I posted the pictures up from that trip too.

@Trigger: Yeah, we go there quite often seen as as it's virtually down the road.

Yeah, it is really nice there.
And it's only about a 5 minute walk away from Big Ben and the London Eye.

Whereabouts do you live?
Technically speaking, I only live an hour away, but because of all that traffic of getting into London it's probably about an hour to an hour and a half.

I live in Surrey, i always get the train to London, and that generally takes only a little over an hour

That area which is called Picadilly Circus is great, it's a nightmare to get across the road though, not unless the you use the footpath subways. (basically, paths that go under the road.)

We went near Piccadilly on a school trip fairly recently - the traffic is such a nightmare - the whole road was literally packed with buses!!!

Yeah, I noticed that.
I saw the Capitol building on TV this morning and thought it was St Paul's Cathederal for a minute.
