Like finally I get to have a proper shower and good night rest at home.
And the next morning, I woke up at 7am. Not sure is it because of the jetlag that causes, but it is always good to sleep early and wake up early isn't it?
As the saying goes like the early bird catches the worm. Ha!
Those views. Aww.
Walked like about 1km to the nearest Catford Bridge station to catch the rail to the Charing Cross station. It was only 2 degree celsius that morning. I was wearing like a dumpling lol
Walked to Embankment to meet with the bro and kicked start our journey.
Hello Ben. How do you do?
After that we walked around that area and went to the Supreme Court nearby.
There was a very strict check before you entered the court. So we gotta take off our wraps to pass the security check then wrapped it back. Gosh, I hate it.
Flowers symbol England, Northen Ireland, Scotland and Wales.
These are the UK countries.
The court for appeal.
There are an exhibition room that showed some histories of the court and also some cases.
It was quite interesting to spend your time reading those cases, knowing the reason some people appeal and how the final decision of the judges.
And after that we moved to the travelling spot which is located just opposite the court.
Westminster Abbey Cathedral
One of the UK's most notable religious buildings and the traditional place of coronation and burial site for English.
The places that I visited are all within walking distance.
How to get there?
Just take a tube and get down at Charing Cross station then walk to Embankment station/ or you can straight away take a tube towards that station but I just followed how my brother instructed. When you get to the Embankment station, turn right and walk along the Thames River and you will find London Eye on your left and so on.
The most representative view of England.
And after a whole morning walking here and there in a winter cold like this, we felt so hungry.
So the brother brought us to Chinatown to have our proper lunch.
How to get there?
Take a tube to the Leicester Square station and walk.
Out of so many Chinese cuisine there, we picked Dumpling's Legend to dine in.
You don't only feel nice to have your hometown food in a foreigner country,
you feel great to have hot food on a freezing day.
Strolling around the Leicester Square.
And according to bro, this is the place where a lot of celebrities came and walked for the red carpet. And he said Usain Bolt was there last few days!
And looked at what we found there!
Not a Lego fans, but still salute and adore those efforts.
The tube. It is so real and so amazing!
The Big Ben lego is freaking cool!
The visitors are given chances to pick and build there.
3 lego patung cost 5.99 pounds.
Is really cheap. If you don't convert the currency. ha!
And before the sky get darken, we got another must-check-in place.
Actually there are a lot more, but due to the insufficient of time, we picked our favourite spot to go.
We hopped back to the tube and get down at the Tower Hill station.
Followed the signboard and we passed by the London Wall.
It was the defensive wall built by the Romans around Londinium, their strategically important port town on the Thames River. Londinium is now London, England.
The Tower of London
It is a historic castle located on the north bank of the Thames River.
The White Tower building gives the enter castle its name.
Tower Bridge in real!
It is a combined bascule and suspension bridge crosses the Thames River.
The bridge deck is freely accessible to both vehicles and pedestrians. But the moment we were there, the road is under construction so the there wasn't any vehicles on the bridge.
The tallest building in London, The Shard.
We then walked from the Tower Bridge to London Bridge station.
We always sing the song 'London Bridge is falling down' but there isn't really a bridge named as London Bridge. It is merely a name of a tube's station.
It was actually quite far to walk but no choice we are not going to walk back the same route so we gotta keep walking forward.
So yea, it called off a day.
