Rainy London Town

The boys trip to London started out as a very rainy occasion. Luckily everybody had remembered to bring their raincoats and umbrellas.The bus dropped them off at Greenwich where they walked through the park to the Observatory and the National Maritime Museum. The boys were very interested in the wide range of things to see, which included the spectacular 'Painted Hall’, one of the oldest speed boats and the Cutty Sark.

The boys then took a boat down the Thames, from where they saw lots of different London landmarks, including Tower Bridge, St. Paul’s Cathedral, the HMS Belfast, the London Eye and Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre. They then walked to Horseguard’s Parade where they were able to take some pictures with the guards on duty there and finally we ended up in Parliament Square. Here they boys saw Big Ben, the Houses of Parliament and Westminster Abbey and were able to buy lots of souvenirs to bring back to Japan. Luckily the rain eased up in the afternoon so the boys didn’t get too wet! After a long and tiring day the boys arrived back in Marlborough with their homestay families for some supper.
