London With Gus

On Saturday I went on a day trip to London with my Mum and my Little Visitor,
Gus The Turkey.

Here are some pictures from our day :)

The gateway station from South Essex into London is Fenchurch Street Station, which is opposite The Tower Of London and Tower Bridge. So that's where we went first.

We stopped off at a tacky London gift shop, where we met an interesting character advertising the London Dungeons...

We then took the short walk round to Tower Hill Underground Station.

By this time it was about 12pm, so we stopped off at Embankment Station to visit my favourite sushi place, Wasabi, where I spent £12 on sushi lol! I got Gus a seaweed onigiri. We stopped off at the nearby park for lunch.

We wanted to go to Chinatown, so instead of getting the Underground we decided to walk. On the way we passed Trafalgar Square...

... the National Gallery...

... the Odeon on Leicester Square...

... until we finally got to Chinatown. I've never been to Chinatown before (how long have I lived here?!) so it was nice to look round somewhere new.

After getting lost and finding some FAB shops along the way, we headed to Bethnal Green for the Bust magazine's summer Craftacular.

It's a big craft event set in York Hall. It was great looking round at all the different crafts :)

We headed home after that. It was one of the hottest days of the year that day; must've been in the 30's. The trains were N.A.S.T.Y. but it was a great day anyway!
