Fall in London
London sunny but cold
After checking in at the Hilton in Paddington, we bought the Oyster Card; you can get it at every train station – also at the airport. It is the best way to use the underground or the bus in London. When you use it your ticket price is limted for zone 1 and 2 max. 6,80 ₤ , for zone 1 – 4 max. 9,80 ₤, and zone 1 -6 max. 12,50 ₤.
We headed first to the Stables and Camden Market. Then we went to the National Gallery, Trafalgar Square and finally we ate dinner.
The next day I headed first to the Liberty department store, then I went to Regent Str. and St. Pauls Cathedral. In the afternoon I met with Carsten and we went by boat to Greenwich, unfortunately we didn’t have enough time to see everything, but for the Painted Hall, the Catheral, Cutty Shark in the starlight and the Greenwich Foot Tunnel it was enough. The big finale was the musical Mama Mia.
I took a Yeoman Warder Tour at the Tower and took my time to explore it detailed the following day. Afterwards I walked through the city and looked at the architecture.
On the last day, I was at Kings Cross Station on track 9 3/4 (Harry Potter), admired the St Pancras Renaissance Hotel and visited the British and Victoria and Albert Museum.
