So Tuesday was our first full day in London. There were so many things we wanted to do in our week that we thought it would be easiest to plan our days whereby the places we visited were close by to one another so that we could cut wasted time through travelling.
First stop- Natural History museum!
So we know it may not be deemed to be the coolest thing that two 18 year olds could do, but we thought why not?! (And M really wanted to see the dinosaurs).
We didn't spend too long in the Museum- our main aim really was just to visit the dinosaurs. The Museum is great though and we'd recommend it to anyone interested in Natural history- and with free entry you can't go wrong!
When we had finished our visit around that particular exhibit, we headed to our next stop- Hyde Park!
We couldn't have picked a better day for visiting here as the weather was beautiful! Hyde Park is such a lovely place to visit so we decided we'd have a wander round and find somewhere to have a bit of lunch.
The place we found was called The Lido Bar and Cafe and it overlooked the Serpentine. We both had pizza and it was lovely.
We also stopped for a quick ice cream whilst in Hyde Park and then headed to Oxford Street.
We had a quick look around the shops- we couldn't believe how big Topshop and Primark were!- but then we had to get a tube back to B's uncle's as his students had an end of year art show (which was actually very good).
Although we would have like to have spent longer checking out the shops, we'll definitely be going back so we'll be able to have a proper look next time!
Sorry for the late post again guys but we hope you enjoyed our quick update!
Have you ever been to the places we visited Tuesday? If so did you like them?
We'd love to hear from you!
Till next time,
