Massive thanks to Ellie and Lauren for their ideas of what to do in London with a first timer. In true British fashion it tipped it down – putting a dampener on our sightseeing walk plans. But we adapted and still had a fantastic rainy day in London. Camden Market We got into Victoria Coach Station at 10.30 and headed for Read More…
