This something well worth doing. However do get there early, the crowds are crazy. We got there by 10:00am and bought fast track tickets. The whole set up is super well organised and we were up and away very quickly. The ride takes about 30 minutes.
Nothing says London quite as well as catching a glimpse of Big Ben.
After the London Eye we went on a river cruise. I had never done that before. Seeing everything from the water gave quite a different perspective.
Then we did a bit of walking. Over the Thames by pedestrian bridge, a stroll to Cleopatra's Needle.
then along the bank to Westminster Bridge and an even closer look at Big Ben.
Up to Trafalgar Square where we decided to have lunch. We thought The Admiralty Pub looked inviting.
It did not disappoint. Pub Grub at its best. I had a super nice chicken and gammon pie which was served with steamed cabbage, chips and gravy.
Jackson went for the Fish and Chips. Which he declared delicious.
All in all a super day out and about.
Talk again soon.
