The group that I traveled with started the day off at the one and only Abbey Road, a huge tourist attraction for Beatles fans. A few of us tried getting identical pictures to the album cover, but it was nearly impossible with all of the traffic!
We then took the tube to check out the science museum. Science isn’t really my thing, but it was pretty cool to see some of the interactive exhibits that dealt with sustainability. There were even a few interactive games to get you thinking about ways to make every day living more sustainable and energy efficient!
The next stop was Kensington Garden, Kensington was ABSOLUTELY beautiful! It would have been the perfect place to lay out a picnic blanket and just take in the view. The group had so much fun just goofing and running around here, and the selfie stick definitely came in clutch!
A majority of the 23 students from our group ended our last night in London together. We were able to pick up a few last minute souvenirs, have dinner in Camden Town, and cheers to the adventures that are in store for the remainder of the trip! I think it is safe to say that London has treated us well!
This was the last day of our London tour and many of us were tired from the days prior so we decided to start the day off a little later and get a full English breakfast. Most of the group ate at Café Oz together. I didn’t have the full English breakfast but those who did were dared to try the black pudding which was less than desirable. After breakfast we broke up into groups and went our separate ways. Some went to the tower of London and some went to musicals. Jessica Bolt and I really wanted to go to Abbey Road so we took the tube there and had no trouble finding the crosswalk. We saw many people also wanting pictures of themselves walking across the street. After getting pictures there we headed to the Beatles gift shop not too far from the crosswalk and purchased some souvenirs.
Overall, London was very exciting and fun and I am excited to see what the rest of the trip has in store for us!
