I got some really awesome presents including an electric guitar (with an amp), a camera and a graphics tablet. Obviously I took my camera with me and I took about 300 photos!
|My Birthday cards.|
Then we got the tube to Monument where we climbed the 311 steps to the top. It was built to commemorate the fire of London.
|The tall building you can see is called the Shard. When it's finished being built it will be the tallest building in London!|
|I zoomed in. :) St Paul's Cathedral.|
|The view up the stairs from the bottom...|
|The bridge was actually a mile away from the Monument, I zoomed in again. :P|
|How high up we were!|
|I think that hat might have been a bit too big...|
We accidently stumbled upon Borough Market which is a really big food market with loads of different foods that you don't really see anywhere else. Me and Mum had some amazing fresh berry smoothies and a Cinnamon biscuit-type-thing.
While we were still lost, we saw the ruins of Winchester Palace...
....And the Golden Hinde...
Then we went to the Clink which was the oldest prison in London. It was really spooky in there. ;)
After that we went to Pizza Express next to the Thames. Yummy :D
And then after that - (we crammed a lot into one day as you can see!) - we went to the Tate Modern. We didn't get time to look around the whole thing but it was still really good.
We also walked past Shakespeare's Globe. It was too late to go in though.
Then we made our way back to Kings Cross. :)
I had a really good day. :) We didn't get back until 11pm. And if you've read until the end of this extremely long post, thank you! :D
