Ashley meets Edward I at Tower of London.

Well up for breakfast which was included in our accommodation. Unfortunately this was only breads and jams so we all upgraded to the buffett breakfast and had cereal, meats, cheeses and fruit. Then we stepped out. We got tickets for teh "Hop On Hop Off" bus system which was great. Once again comes with audio commentary so you learn as you go. Ashley decided it was too cold for her on the top deck in the open so Cameron and Ashley went down stairs and left Keira-Lee and Nick up in the cold.

We decided we would get of at the Tower of London and visit while we were near it. KL and Nick both were freezing cold but Cam and Ashley were fine. Lunch at a small cafe "EAT" near the Tower and in we went. Funny thing was we had been speaking with a bit of a "Pommy" (don;t take offence to that term!) accent and when KL asked for a guide book she did with the accent.

The tour was great. Crown Jewels were amazing and everything we saw was fantastic.

Another funny story happened when we were looking at the crown jewels. With millions of dollars worth of very sparkly jewels in front of her a woman was staring at Ashley and commenting on how beautiful she was. Obviously Ashley was flashing her big grin which wins most hearts but to take a woman's eyes away from the Queens bling is amazing!

We then took a boat trip down the river to Parliament House. This was included in the price of the bus tour ticket. Cam and Nick stayed upstairs outside this time while KL and Ashley stayed warm downstairs. Bloody freezing upstairs but got some good shots.

We then hopped on a bus tour back to Marble Arch and had KFC for dinner in Oxford Street before walking home.

A cold but very good day!
