By 6pm the Thames river tide will be too high for the ships to pass under the bridge. Millennium bridge known as the wiblywobbly. Two hours after the queen opened it, police had to close it because I was swaying so much people were falling down. The designer said there was nothing wrong with the bridge, the people were walking wrong on the bridge.1615 - anchor
Francis Drake's pirate ship. London Bridge, 1st built 2000 yrs ago by the Romans.Tower Bridge.
The London Tower tour was really interesting. London tower has a fascinating history the main building (White Tower) was built by William the conqueror. The medieval toilets where a hole that went out to the moat, which is needless to say became one of the most disease infested places in London. Ann Bolyne was beheaded there. It has one of the last remaining Tudor buildings in existence, which in part is still used by the queen. Speaking of the queen, found out we could go to the queen's public birthday celebration for ￡15 tonight, where the queen is supposed to attend. I'm doubt I'll end up going to that though.
After London Tower, we headed to St. Martin's church to do some brass rubbing. I did mine with Ann Bolyne, I felt it followed the theme for the day.
After the brass rubbing, the others went back to Metrogate, while I headed to Leicester Square (pronounced Lester) to try and find m&m world. On my way it started to really rain, luckily I had my umbrella. However I did get to walk through London's Chinatown which are made up of some cool back streets. Then when I turned back onto the main square I saw a lot of people gathered behind a fenced barrier and giant screens playing Superman previews and heard police offers redirecting people unless they had a cinema ticket. I thought it was people getting ready for the midnight showing or something. But it was even cooler, it was the London Premier of Superman. I was less than 50 feet from Russel Crow and Henry Cavil, though it was difficult to see much detail because it was raining so there were many umbrellas. I was able to find my way around the barrier and got to go to the Red carpet/ superman carpet. They had already moved down the carpet, but it was still pretty cool. I found a guy who had gotten signatures on his superman poster. Then I went to find m&M world. 4 floors of m&m's. I was able to try the new peanut butter chocolate m&m which was yummy. After which I met up with everyone and we went to Hyde Park: princess Diana memorial, feeding swans in royal gardens, Kensington palace.
Dinner at Da Lisa, and grocery shopping for breakfast and lunch for the next few days.
