London day 1

We had a busy day of traveling yesterday so today was a bit of an easy day.

We attended Mass and walked through Hyde Park from Marble Arch after we did an earth cache there. We walked until we were hungry and had lunch in an English pub.

After lunch we spent some time at the Australian war memorial trying to locate names of towns we had lived in. Not very successful.

Nundah listed as one of the many places in Australia who sent men t

o war.

We intend to go back to find the names of Burpengary and Longreach.

Walking back through Hyde Park we saw horse riders and joggers. It really is a great park.

Next came the trip to the Harry Potter studios after we’d had a brief rest back at the apartment.

The Great Hall.

Harry’s room under the stairs. It’s why we call our little door under the stairs Harry’s room.

Jessica going to Hogwarts for the 2nd year and we didn’t have to pay £16 for it like you do at King’s Cross.

The letters keep coming.

Wizard chess pieces coming to get us.

Butter beer. Very sweet.

Hagrid’s costume was huge.

Had to have a photo. Perfect bus for us.

Of course the train has to have a photo.

Probably my favourite part.

I highly recommend this tour if you like the books and the movies. It is very interactive and self paced and although they say it will take 3 hours we could have been there much longer except we had a time schedule and it was past 9.30pm when we got out. We had arrived for the 6.30pm session and were already tired. It was really an amazing experience so if you get the chance please go along and check it out.
