A London Eye’s view

Monday morning saw me getting back on the fast train to Waterloo Station, London to meet up with an old friend from my William Harvey Hospital days, & a distant cousin from Ireland who I was meeting for the first time. Straight out of Waterloo Station & the London Eye is right there. For 18 quid you get a half hour ride with views across London which are pretty spectacular of the Houses of Parliament, Big Ben, St Paul’s Cathedral, Buckingham Palace & the Thames to name a few.

I ended the day with a walk past Big Ben, up Whitehall & into Tralfalgar Square seeing all those sights you see in all the London Tourist Brochures.
