We walked along the river to get to the nearest bridge, and the day was really nice. Along the way, we came across a “street performer” that we thought was interesting: A man, making giant bubbles with rope and poles.
The morning before the London Eye, the family split up to do some separate tourism. Me, Mary Ella, and Mom went to the Churchill War Rooms, while Addy and Dad went to the Sherlock Holmes museum. There will be another blog post about the war rooms, and Sherlock was already blogged. In the afternoon, Me, Mary Ella, and Mom walked over to the Thames River, where the Eye is.
When we got to the Eye, we met up with Addy and Dad, and admired it from below.
We waited in line and got our tickets. Then, when the next pod came down and the people got off, we boarded. As we first started going up, there was a voice giving some announcements and information, but it stopped after a minute. As we got higher and higher the view was better and better! Unfortunately, big Ben was under construction, but we saw it.
Overall it was a great experience and one of the best times of the year.
