On Monday we ventured down to London for a sightseeing tour with Charlie in which we crammed a lot in for the 26 hours we were in the big smoke (and didn’t my feet know about it!)
We live in a small town with a bus that goes hourly to the next closest “big” town and the service stops at 5pm and doesn’t run on a Sunday at all! The closest train station is a 30 minute drive so it’s safe to say we very rarely go on public transport as it’s so dire and far away, so when we do it’s quite a novelty. We travelled down to London on the train which was a somewhat painful almost 3 hour journey as we opted for the cheaper tickets meaning it took forever. As we arrived into London, as it was heavily raining we hopped in a black cab to Madame Tussauds which was Charlie’s first ever experience in a black London cab. He was fascinated by the fact you could sit facing backwards!
After we had finishing mingling with the “stars” we bought our tube tickets and visited various spots around London. It was relatively quiet on the tube so Charlie loved hopping on and off and trying to work out what colour lines we would have to take. He loved putting the ticket in and marching through the barrier.
