A friend arrived in London fr Japan, so I took him around. I thought I’ll as well just to post some pic for non-UK readers (or even you’re in London, hehe.. this is what a tourist do).
My friend stayed in Hostel 639
8GBP (11use) per night including breakfast (which is bread and tea/coffee) I didn’t know such a cheap place existed. It is next to Kensal Rise station and around 6 stations away from Central London/Piccadilly Circus.
British Museum: (cloest metro: Tottenham court road or Russell Square)
Seeing a football match in Arsenal (closest tube: Arsenal/although I walked from Highbury and Islington station)
Also, people arrive so early!I arrived 1 hour before the match and the stadium is already half-full! There’s roughly 60000 people in the stadium, so there’s so many different things you need to be aware on a match day. They closed at least 2 stations (exit only) and there’re 5 stations available for football fans to leave. There’s also one of the most ridiculous shop till/cashier system in the Arsenal souvenir shop. 1 girl on the cashier, 1 for security tag removal, and the other to bag your item or fold your shirt.
If you have only half-a-day then this is the must see. The view is absolutely beautiful up there, and even we went on a very wet day. You can see hamsptead quite clearly.
Me in London Eye (For your information, only L’egere and concealer and lip balm is used. Nothing else. I’m just really really tired and the weather is too wet to put on anything)
Wait. No more photos? Sorry girls. Me and my friend then went to STRADA (Italian restaurant) at the Royal National Theatre for food, and I was too tired and I went home. Maybe I’ll talk more about this trip later.
