London Walker [Part 2]

20th July 2008

This was the second day of our London Trip. Wake up early morning to have our breakfast provided, which was English Breakfast; bread, egg, sausage, ham, frieds and orange juice. Although it just like every ordinary breakfast provided by our own local Malaysia hotel and nothing extraordinary, but it's better than nothing, right?
We start our tour with visiting Pollock's Toy Museum. Unfortunately, it was closed when we were there. Maybe it was too early for us to reach there. So we move to next destination.
We visit few museums once again. London really gots lots of museum which you can't missed out.
The first museum we visited on the second day was British Museum. It was located nearby Holborn Station. I really love this museum compared to the other museum which I had visited. It's a recommend must-visit museum.
British Museum is a museum of human history and culture. Its collections, which number more than seven million objects, are amongst the largest and most comprehensive in the world and originate from all continents, illustrating and documenting the story of human culture from its beginning to the present.

Its divide into few departments such as Ancient Egypt and Sudan, Greek and Roman, Middle East, Asia and etc. Due to lack of time, my friends and I are able to visit few departments only. If I had the chance to visit London again, British Museum will be in my top list.
Next, we heading to Museum of London. Once again, we unable to sight around this museum and we only manage to quick and fast view around.

Now, we go into the most interesting and the world well-know places. Just stopby half of your day at Westminister station or Waterloo Station and you will be able to see most of the famous landmarks of the world.

First, start with London Eye.
London Eye, which also known as Millenium Eye is the biggest ferris wheel in Europe. It is one of the most popular tourist attraction. If you want to take a ride, I would recommend you to early booking thru online as if you plan to buy on the spot, you need queue up for 3-4 hours. No kidding!
Second, Big Ben. Big Ben actually is the nickname for the great bell of the clock and is often extended to refer the the clock tower. It's just nearby London Eye which you can see it on your left hand side.

After that, we were heading to the landmark where we used to sing this landmark where we were small. But before I introduce that place to u, here are some pics of the building and places that is so interesting and amazing.
Seems like a ship in Pirates of the Carribbean
The place where we had our dinner. Damn expensive. Cost 15 pound per person
Here it comes.

"London Bridge is falling down. Falling down. Falling down."

Yup. This is the landmark which you can't be miss. Like they said, if you don't visit this landmark, then you never come to London.
By the way, the bridge behind is not London Bridge. Most of the people had mistakenly referred this bridge as London Bridge but it was not. There is a really London Bridge exist but it seems like a normal bridge and it's just next to this bridge. The name of this bridge is Tower Bridge.
Night view from the Tower Bridge. A night to remember
Last chapter of London Walker is next.
