London trip.

Last weekend was a very new experience! My mum and I travelled down to London and stayed in a Bed and Breakfast in Northolt, the trip lasted four days. Setting off early on Friday left us with the afternoon to travel in to Covent Garden, using the underground trains. We then walked to Aldwych Theatre to see Dirty Dancing on the west end. It was an amazing show, I enjoyed it A LOT!!
The second day we traveled to Kew gardens, (there was an amazing butterfly and moth house where you can walk around and photograph all the wonderful creatures). We stayed there for a most of the day (until it closed at 5.30) and took the number 11 bus, which drove past all the main attractions such as: Big Ben, (even little Ben!!) the London Eye, Westminster ... We got off at St Paul's Cathedral and walked along the Millennium Bridge to Tate Modern. By this time it was getting dark so we didn't go round a lot of the art gallery and I also started to get ear ache, so headed back to the Lodge.
On the Third day, the Natural History Museum was a must!! I had to see everything and it was soooooo big!! That was all we did that day because we were so tired (Approximately 6 and a half hours in the museum)
The last day consisted of driving home with a little stop off at the gorgeous gardens of Trentham. The pictures say it all!!
Pictures and update of the summer camp will be in my next post, but for now have a wonderful weekend!

Sounds as though you had a great if tiring time. I have to admit I had never heart of the gardens you visited but having checked out the website it looks really great and such a contrast to your busy, noisy time in London. Have a good weekend and I look forward to seeing what you got up to at the summer camp later.

Hi Lucy! Sounds like you had a lovely trip to London and I can imagine I too would spend hours in the museum. The gardens are beautiful, I wish we had gardens like that to visit here. Have a nice weekend.

6 hours in a museum! You two must be keen, but the photos show what a great time you had. You are so lucky that you and your Mum enjoy each other's company so much. That is very precious and lovely. I've never been to Trentham but I remember reading that their gardens were redesigned a few years ago by someone well known. They look pretty good to me! Have a great weekend Lesley xx

Oh lucky lady. I love a trip to the smoke. The natural history is my fave (even more than the Science!!)I saw dinos when we went lasttime. Take care.
