After a short nap to recover from the long flight and sleepless trip, hubby and I went for our own adventure.
We took the tube (train) to see the London Eye, River Thames, Big Ben and Tower Bridge in the evening.
By the time we reached the Eye, it was after 9pm and the day started to turn dark. Even that did not stop a big crowd of people at the park from enjoying their summer. The view from the park was lovely.
We then walked back to Waterloo Station which was about 5 minutes walking time. We had our dinner at the Black & Blue Restaurant (opposite Waterloo Station) before taking our train back to our hotel. It was after 11pm but the station was very packed with train goers. Now I knew what the meaning of "The city that never sleeps". ^^
