21 Jun Harrods Shopping & London City Tour
The weekend went so quickly, my first impression of the city innovative, always changing and very surprising. I have mastered the tube, worked a full week and met some amazing people through Absolute Internship at Nido Student Living.
To say that I live for the weekends in London would be an understatement. London comes alive and their weekend technically starts on a Thursday night, but Erin and I had an early night to prepare ourselves for a pub crawl on Friday night!
Friday had arrived and all the London interns came on the pub crawl with 1 Big Night Out. The tour led us to 3 bars and 2 nightclubs that are absolutely pumping all weekend. Going with a guided tour was perfect as we didn’t have to wait in lines to get in, we received drink tokens at every bar and were looked after very well. Even got some photos to remember the night.
On Saturday it was raining so I relaxed, until we all decided to go shopping in the famous Harrods department store! It was madness! Harrods had a huge sale which meant everyone in London decided to go shopping with some items being discounted down from 6000 pounds! Robyn and I lost ourselves in the shoe department for a while until we regrouped and all decided to go home as the shopping spree was not matching our energy levels.
On Sunday we went on a bus tour of all the famous London sites including, The River Thames, The London Eye, Tower Bridge, London Bridge, Big Ben, Westminster Abbey, Buckingham Palace Gardens, Oxford Circus and Trafalgar Square. We also went to the changing of the guard at Buckingham Palace where 5 guards were rewarded for their services to the palace. It was a beautiful day out.
There is so much to see and do here in London and the Absolute Internship Team are doing a fantastic job of showing us all the sites and making me feel right at home. All the activities are well planned and are highly interesting, but also very flexible with what the group decides to do on the day.
Next is Bath and Stonehenge with another weekend of exciting adventures!
