London Trip : Part Four The attractions

When we went to London we chose to see quite a few attractions. 
On the Friday after dinner we headed to Ripley's believe it or not. 
We had both wanted to go there for awhile so made the trip an oppertunity
to do so. 

Here are a few photo's from Ripley's.

Above we have the titanic made from matchsticks which is pretty awesome if you ask me. 
Below is a country theme carved out of a single tobacco leaf.  

Then we have some  toast art

The Beatles made from chewed, chewing gum 

A painted ostrich egg

A portrait of Sting made from telephone books

Olympic torches through the ages

A 3ft tall Chinese temple carved from one piece of Jade gemstone

Last of all me with a dummy of the worlds tallest man which makes me look tiny. 

On Saturday after checking out from the hotel we decided to head to Westminster
to see Westminster Abbey and Big Ben but also so we could go to the sea life centre.

I've not seen the Big Ben in years, and that was for the day 
with my parents, so it was nice to be able to be there again.

At the sea life centre we got to see loads of different fish, sharks, crocodiles etc
but the best bit for me was seeing the penguins they looked so cute.

We really wanted to go on the London Eye but the queue was far too long.
So we headed off on the tube to go and see the Science Museum as Stuart had wanted
to go for awhile. 

Below are a few photos we took at the museum.
