Out of London

  1. I only spent 4 1/2 days in London when I was in England. I went to England with my family two years ago when our church choir was in residence at the Bristol Cathedral and with the group, 2 1/2 days were going to be spent in London so my family decided to go up two days earlier just to get more of London.

    In those first two days, I got to live one of the biggest dreams of my life. My mom, knowing I dreamed of seeing Les Mis in the West End, she took me to see it so we had a date to see it and our seats were nine rows back and I had an understudy as Jean Valjean. Other London things were visiting platform 9 3/4 at Kings Cross, and seeing the guards. With the group, saw services at Westminster and St. Paul’s Cathedral, seeing Buckingham Palace and walking around the Tower of London. I even got to spend time at Windsor Castle. I saw things like Big Ben and the London Eye. Even though I only spent 4 1/2 days in London, I still was able to enjoy London, but if I ever was to go to London again, I would just spend my entire time there instead of having to leave in the middle.

    I spent most of my time in Bristol so I didn’t get to see all of London, but hope I get to go on a vacation just to London at some point in the future
