1 Day Trip to London

This last week was my wife’s birthday, so we decided to make a trip to London for the day.  We left early in the morning and caught a 5:45am bus.  The National Express is the cheapest (about £15 roundtrip).  We decided to see as much as we could in just one day, which meant us taking the tube and walking all over the city.  We arrived at the Victoria Coach Station and didn’t waste anytime before going to see the sites. Here is a map of where we went:

Check out our photos from some of our favorite sites:

Trafalar Square and the National Gallery:
Tower of London.  The were poppies all planted, commemorating the fallen soldiers in World War 1:
Yes, we are Harry Potter fans.  We had to go take a photo at Platform 9 3/4:
We ended the day by going to the musical, Wicked.  My wife has always wanted to go, and since we were in London on her birthday, we figured it was perfect timing:
After Wicked, we caught the bus back to Birmingham.  We weren’t in our bed back home until 3:00am, but it was well worth the trip!
