World Trip 2012-13: Day 24 – London, England

Highlights: Protests at Westminster, Spies and Spycatchers tour

Overslept slightly, I blame the super soft bed. Enjoyed an English Breakfast in the Executive Lounge, no wonder high flying executives get overweight with all this free and high fat food available.

I learned I couldn’t get a ticket to the West Ham vs Southampton match so it was onto Plan B a London Walking Tour (these guys are great) and just walking around. This started with getting the tube to London Bridge and just strolling.

Saw the new landmark building the Shard that Gareth mentioned yesterday and Tower Bridge and the Tower of London both very special places. Looking down side streets I found great looking Malls, that’s the thing with London lots of history and great looking places.

Moving onto Westminster, as I wanted to see Big Ben, I walked right into an anti austerity protest. Huge protest by the union movement and Green Party. At least this was peaceful unlike some Spanish and Greek protests. I don’t particularly want to see a protest in Madrid later next week 🙂

The Spies and Spycatchers Walk was enjoyable, especially for all the stories. UK had a lot of double agents working for the Soviets but they also had a few working for them that caused the Germans problems during World War II.
