A trip to London, October 2009

Last Wednesday, Andrea had a Day Off Work and took me up to London again! She said we were going to try and get Eurostar Tickets!
How exciting!
This time, we went to Brighton Train Station and got Train to London. There were so many people on the train, that Andrea had to Stand Up all the way!!! I was safely tucked away in her pocket so I couldn't take any pictures.....

Here we are again in London!!

We got another Bus 73!

Oh! That's not the way to Youth Hostel!!

St Pancras International? Oh! We came here before when we went to Paris!!

We got Ticket!!!!! We're going to somewhere called Lille. I wonder where that is?
Andrea even got a free thing called Plan da Vee which she says is French for Town Map. Oh, so they speak French in Lille??
Lille is in France??! How exciting!!
On the way out, we saw a lovely clock! I like that clock!

We got another Bus 73 but Andrea said we weren't going back to Train Station just yet. We had to lose some of my Art in London first.

We got off Bus 73 here, at a thing called Marble Arch. Apparently this used to be the entrance to Buckingham Palace, where Queen lives.

And then we saw this wonderful Horse Statue!! My friend Traveler has been to London, so I guess they made this statue just for him!

Isn't it gorgeous?!

And here's me with Traveler's statue AND Marble Arch!!

On the way down Park Lane, we saw a stone Muriel all about animals.

Here's another statue of Donkey. He looks tired...

Then we went down past Hyde Park. It's so big..... there's lots of places to hide in here, so I guess that's why it's called Hide Park!

Then I spotted some funny cars!! I want one of those!

And there's a Fountain in Hyde Park!

And then I spotted some people riding Horse too!

We went past this Gothic building again.

And then I stopped for a rest by this leaf!!

We went past this Lion and Unicorn Gate!

That gate's rather wonderful too!

Oh! What's that?!

Oh! Andrea says she thinks this place is called Hyde Park Corner...

We got a better view from here....

Then we walked down Grosvenor Place (or was it Road? Or Lane? I can't remember!) and saw these lovely wrought iron window frames. Somebody called Prime Minister lived in here once, there was a round blue plaque on the wall saying so.

Andrea says the Queen's back yard is on the other side of the wall.

We were tying my weathergrams to railings all the way, while we were walking!

Victoria Station that way. That's where we're going!

OH!! There's a Lion chasing a Gazelle!! In the middle of London!
I didn't know we got Lions in London!!

And here we are back at Victoria Station!!
I wonder if we'll get a seat on Train?

And we did!! Here we are going past Battersea Power Station!
It's not used any more but it's a fabulous building!

And here we are back home!!
