In the 18 years I’ve been alive and the numerous times I’ve been to London, never have I visited any ‘tourist hotspots’ such as the palace, Trafalgar square, not even Big Ben! So when me and my friend decided we were going to London, we arranged to go visit these places!
We initially started out on Oxford Street – like two teenage girls would – and done a spot of shopping! I didn’t spend as much as I thought I would, I’m pretty impressed. You can see what I bought here. 🙂
After spending some money we hopped on the tube and stopped at Victoria Station. We didn’t know where this actually was going to be, just assumed it’d be in the centre. Luckily it was. Our first stop was Big Ben. I was oblivious to the fact it was Big Ben until I looked and noticed it was an actual clock. It then became pretty obvious what it was! I underestimated the ‘big’ in the name. I did not expect it be that big, at all!
We then had a little wonder around the area, taking photographs (we’re both a level photographers). Our next stop was Westminster Abbey.
I’m not a very architectural person, never been interested in buildings and how they’re built etc. However coming across Westminster Abbey never ever ever have I been so mesmerised and fascinated. It truly is an amazing building. Everything about the building really captivated me. I’m totally in love with it and in awe of it!
