How much can you see if you have 48 hours in London? A lot as it turns out.
Last March, en route to Armenia, Big Papa and I spent two days and two nights in London. Armed with our copy of City Walks London (we’ve used, and loved, City Walks Paris on several trips), we set out to explore the city.
What we saw: Big Ben, Parliament, Buckingham Palace, Kensington Palace, Westminster Bridge, the river Thames, Scotland Yard, London bobbies, double-decker buses, St. Paul’s Cathedral and the London Eye.
What we did: strolled around Kensington Gardens, toured the Tate Modern museum and looked at cool art before enjoying a yummy lunch at the museum cafe, rode the tube in the London Underground (and made sure to mind the gap!), meandered through Hyde Park and saw amazing feats of skill on roller blades, walked across Millennium Bridge, bought a wool scarf for Big Papa and fingerless gloves for me on Portobello Road, wandered arond Notting Hill and watched dapper school boys in crisp shorts and blazers get picked up from school by mums in spendy sports cars.
