Garry and I could not have chosen a better day for our visit to Bateaux London Cruises. A blue sky hung over the Capital and the glass high-rises glittered in the springtime sun. We arrived at Embankment Pier feeling peckish and looking forward to Afternoon Tea on the Thames, aboard the fittingly named Harmony.
With the echo of "Swing Low, Sweet Chariot" ringing through our ears, Leoni and I hopped off at Twickenham train station to take part in our latest staff review and I'm sure you can guess what it is - a Twickenham Stadium Tour for two. After a quick 10 minute walk from the station to the stadium, Leoni and I headed to the Rugby Store where the tour starts...
People aren't wrong when they say that the atmosphere at a football stadium makes for a truly experience unique! Even though it wasn't a match day and there were few people there, it was incredible - so you can only imagine what it would be like on a match day. The huge stadium towering tall above us and the XL version of the original Arsenal badge, people had come from all over the world to view the amazing grounds. We were lucky enough to get complimentary passes for the self-guided audio tour, which, as neither of us had been inside a football stadium before - we were rather excited about.
We really got in the spirit of Halloween this week (mind the pun) and found ourselves on a Haunted Pub Tour in London with Lantern Ghost Tours! This was not only very fitting for the time of year, it was also an interesting and exciting way to spend an evening in London.
An absolutely fantastic day out, HM Tower of London should be high on anyone’s London ‘to do’ list and is a great experience to share with family or a group of friends.
