Ightham descends on London!
26th April 2010
On Tuesday 6th of April, 1st Ightham Scouts, Quintain Explorers and Quintain Young Explorers went on a trip to London for the day. There were roughly 25 of us!
We made our way to London by train and then headed to the Houses of Parliament. We had to be in very smart uniform. We had a tour around the Houses of Parliament and we visited the House of Lords, and the House of Commons. It was very interesting and everywhere was gold! For lunch we went to Mc Donald’s which was very crowded! While we were walking, we caught glimpses of Big Ben, and every one took pictures of everywhere we went…
Finally we walked to 10 Downing Street, we were all quite tired from walking around a lot, and we took many pictures of us standing beside the number 10 door. It was one of the shiniest doors you could ever see! We were not able to go in, but we still enjoyed talking to the police man who stood in front of the door. On the way back to the train station we visited Buckingham Palace, and had an ice cream.
