After listening to the bells at St. Martin in the Bull Ring on Sunday morning, we took the train from Birmingham to the last stop on our England journey — London! From London Euston train station, we took one of those great London taxis to our hotel that was between Trafalgar Square and the Thames. We settled into the hotel and then crossed the Thames on the Golden Jubilee pedestrian bridges.

The two pedestrian bridges span the river on either side of a railroad bridge. By going out one side and back on the other, we got views in both directions along the Thames — seeing some of the iconic structures of London in one short walk.

Going back on the other part of the Golden Jubilee Bridges, we got a view of St. Paul’s Cathedral and downtown London

I was very happy with my first glimpses of London! Have you been there? What did you do in your first hours?
