We boarded the double decker bus late morning heading towards Tower Bridge
After another fish and chip lunch we chilled out at St Catherine Docks before heading over Tower Bridge to the Tower of London. We all decided to end the day treating ourselves to shopping at Harrods. We had great fun checking out the watches, trying on fancy dresses and finally purchasing sunglasses to replace the couple of pairs stolen. Question - what do you think one of the most expensive watches at Harrods costs?
Dinner at home tonight with Janet - and another few wines. I booked our final accommodations on our trip, one night at Heathrow and four nights in downtown Vancouver. I am celebrating as I am over last minute bookings. Felicity has done an awesome job sussing out our accommodation as we have moved around. She has a real knack for finding excellent properties, at a bargain.
The London Dungeons! Creeeeeeeppy. When we hopped off the red double decker bus there was a long queue of about 1000 people so we had to go and see why there was such a big queue. It was a good thing we did because it was one of the best experiences of my life!
The first room was called The Crypt! This was underneath the so called Hallow's Church with dead bodies. UGHHH , THAT PART WAS DISGUSTING!! The 2nd room was called The Labyrnith of Lost Souls where you went through a mirror maze with people jumping out at you with big cuts or holding their brains.The 3rd room was about the plague and what happened when you got sick! The 4th room was about the great fire of London. It was about a man who owned a baker's store and woke up in the middle of the night to find that his store was on fire. He managed to save his wife, his two children and himself but his maid was trapped and she burned to death! The 5th room was called Surgery, Blood and Guts, where a doctor from the olden days was allowed to have people and open them up to research different parts of their body like the heart or lungs. He operate and pretended he pulled out a heart. It went all black and you felt what was supposed to be blood splattered all over you!!!!!!!! The 6th room was called the Torture Chamber where they showed you what happened when the judge sentenced you to torture. One thing they did was get what looked like a massive pair of scissors, then they would put the end of them in the fire for a while so it was burning hot
The most expensive watch at Harrods that we saw cost £304,000.
