Last week our first-year Baccalaureate students made a wonderful trip to London, where we visited places of interest and fabulous landmarks that we loved.
We started our first day strolling down the South Bank from the Tower Bridge, east London, where we saw the mythical warship HMS Belfast, ate at the famous Borough Market under the London Bridge, visited the mythical Globe theatre and went up to the third floor of the Tate Modern Museum to take a typical photo with Saint Paul Cathedral in the background. Then we crossed the Millenium Bridge towards St. Paul’s Cathedral to return to the hotel via Monument.
On the second day, our itinerary included a visit to the National History Museum and the Science Museum in South Kensington. Next, we went to Notting Hill to tour along Portobello road with its typical colorful houses. In the afternoon, we visited the Sky Garden to have a privileged view of this splendid city while enjoying the sunset. On our way back to the hostel, we took the typical pics with an impressive lit Tower Bridge background and later wandered through the stunning Saint Katherine’s Dock.
The third day was quite exhaustive. We began our route at Westminster Bridge where we took our first pictures in front of the London Eye. Then we walked towards Buckingham Palace to enjoy the ceremony of the change of guard and the particular change of guard at Wellington Barracks. Then we toured the Saint James’ Imperial Park to go to ‘House of Guards Parade’, from there we went to see 10 Downing Street, where the Prime Minister, Theresa May, resides. We visited Trafalgar Square to go to Candem Town, where we did our souvenirs shopping and had lunch. In the afternoon, we headed to Soho, stopping at Kings Cross to visit the famous Harry Potter shop. Later on, we began our Soho tour at the famous Covent Garden Square, strolled to Leicester Square and visited the popular M&M’s store. Following, we went to Picadilly Circus, walked along Regent’s Street to enjoy the outstanding Hamley’s Toy Store, went down Carnaby Street and ended up in China Town, where we were able to take a break and have dinner.
The last day in London was a little more relaxed. We visited the British Museum and went to Marble Arch where some of us wandered around Oxford Street, others strolled through Hyde Park or went to the Primark shop to do their last shoppings. Finally, we all rushed back to the hotel to take the shuttle and return home from Heathrow airport.
All in all, it has been an unforgettable trip.
