What to do in London in one day Vol.1

September 4, 2017

So if you just have one day like I did and if you're staying at the Intercontinental London - The O2, then I recommend to take the MBNA Thames Clippers speedboat to the city centre. The journey takes around 35 minutes straight from the O2 Arena to the famed London Eye and even further if you wish. You will be able to see a lot of the beautiful riverside architecture as well as the famed London Bridge, whilst having a coffee or a glass of bubbly if you wish. The price is also very reasonable just £8 per person and it's very convenient.  We came off at the London Eye stop and made our way towards the Big Ben for some photos. I have always wanted to see this Great Bell and it's pretty impressive considering it was finished in 1859. The clockmaker Ian Westworth said that it's, “the prince of timekeepers: the biggest, most accurate four-faced striking and chiming clock in the world.” It's currently undergoing a four-year period of renovation, therefore the tower's renowned bells will be silent until the renovation is complete. After The London Eye and Big Ben we made our way towards the Trafalgar Square and enjoyed some drinks along the way. Trafalgar Square is a public square in the City of Westminster, Central London, built around the area formerly known as Charing Cross. Its name commemorates the Battle of Trafalgar, a British naval victory in the Napoleonic Wars with France and Spain that took place on 21 October 1805 off the coast of Cape Trafalgar, Spain. Anyway enough about history, I forgot to say we were so lucky with the weather - 27 degrees and sunny, whilst it was raining in Marbella! Talk about luck! Hope you enjoy some of the photos I took along the way and stay tuned for volume two of my day in London!
