Class 14

London Residential Day 1

After setting off super early this morning, we arrived in London and went straight to Russel Square Gardens and had a picnic in the lovely weather.


Hopping back on the coach, we headed to the River Thames to see the river and the many things that surround it. We saw the Houses of Parliament, Big Ben, the London Eye and the Shard! We then got an even better look at the landmarks by going on a river cruise. We even learnt that there are over 100 species of fish in the River Thames and it is one of the cleanest rivers in the world!


Next, we had a lovely tea at Pizza Express - the pizzas and desserts were especially delicious! It was nice to have a sit down and time to chat with friends after the travelling and walking today.


To see even more of London, we then went on the London Eye. Quite a few of us were nervous before we went up but once we were seeing the whole of London, we let go of our fear and really enjoyed the view! The sky was clear so we could see all the way across London which was amazing! We then explored Parliament Square Gardens which had statues of famous people in British history including some prime ministers.


After our busy first day, we headed to the hostel to check in and get comfy in our rooms. We were very excited about our rooms but got to sleep quickly after a busy day.
