Museums and bridges are our favourite places in London so we decided to dedicate that day to an exciting city tour. We took the van and moved up and down, right and left, looking for the best that London can offer.
This is Tower Bridge and that’s where we started the journey of bridges.
We’ve been to the Roman Amphitheatre which is located, as you can see on the map, between St Paul’s and Moorgate station, and underneath the Guildhall.
These LED figures represent the gladiators from the Roman’s times. They were fighters who fought in the arena for money, entertainment, honour and glory. They seem really strong and fit. Walking in the amphitheatre you would think that they are there for real but it’s an optical illusion; getting closer you realise that it’s a 2D shape.
What you see in the first picture is what is left from the sewer that was used as a drain to take the water out of the amphitheatre during the rain seasons.
After the amphitheatre we crossed five bridges starting from Tower Bridge, to London Bridge, then Southwark Bridge, Waterloo Bridge and we ended up at Westminister Bridge. Likely at that moment it was sunset time so we had the best view at the best moment.
On our way to Primrose Hill we passed close to Buckingham Palace and we noticed the shape of the Queen Victoria Memorial.
Finally we arrived at the top of Primrose Hill where the view was terrific. This experience left us with a question in our minds: is that a fox or a dog?
