Lost in London



I went to London yesterday for an art reward trip with school, although it was a long day it was really good. It was so busy because we were walking through some of the busiest parts, like Trafalgar square was packed because west end live was on, which looked great because rock of ages was on at the time.


While i was there we visited a couple of art galleries, one of them was Tate modern, across the way from the millennium bridge, i was excited for this bridge as i had been told it moved but it didn't move even the slightest bit, oh well.


The first picture is of me and my friends outside Buckingham palace, we went there to just have a quick nosy and then we walked to the first art gallery. I've got to admit it was kind of boring but we made a game of trying to find the cheapest one, which was £40 but we had no luck!


The best part of the day was Camden market, i didn't buy much just a bracelet and a ring from a cute Indian style shop outside the market hall, but if i would have been given more time i probably would have spent all my money. The food stalls around Camden smelt so good, so i decided to try a battered mars bar for the first time ever, and it was delicious! I don't even like mars bars because i'm not a big lover of caramel, but my friend got one and when i had a bite you could not even taste the caramel, so i went back to the stall to have one.


When we got to Euston train station to go home, the train to Manchester before ours had been cancelled, so people had to buy tickets to add on to ours. When we were queuing up my friend spotted Paddy Mcguinness, so she waited behind and got a picture, but i was already on the train. Then when we got on the train all our reserved seats were cancelled, so the thirty of us were split up all over the train, but two seats behind us was Alisha from misfits so we talked to her but didn't manage to get a picture.


As we were all split up, the train found a carriage that wasn't that full so we got moved, and it ended up being first class, so we got free drinks and food, we felt so posh. When we arrived in Manchester my aim was to jump off the train and get a picture with paddy, which i did, he seemed really nice about it, and his poor girlfriend/wife had to take a picture.


I love London and can't wait to hopefully go again, just to dedicate my trip to shopping, i loved just walking round the streets and seeing things come to life that i had only ever seen on TV before. The atmosphere was great too, i'd love to live in London!

  14. Aw wow can't believe you met Paddy! Haha so cool, he's so funny. I'm glad you enjoyed London! My uni is in London so I live there during the term time. I ventured into Notting Hill for the first time with my friend - so posh! I've never tried a battered mars bar before (I don't like normal mars bar either) but my boyfriend has told me they're good! I'd like to try...but maybe not a whole one x
