Stonehenge, Bath and Salisbury (2016)

We have booked the tour through Golden Tours and paid GBP 54 per person, which was inclusive of a trip to Stonehenge, Bath and Salisbury. We woke up super early as we had to be at the pick up point / meeting place by 8AM (Golden Tours Victoria Visitor Centre).

I was quite worried with the weather as it was raining really hard during the day – but there’s nothing else we can do and I don’t think it’s still possible to rebook the tickets.

We first went to Stonehenge. It was packed with people (literally), and we couldn’t take decent pictures because of the heavy rain. The stones were also surrounded with barriers so no one can really come close to them – which I totally understand.

Can you see from the pictures how wet we were? It was raining really hard and it so cold. But that’s okay, at least we were lucky to have some pictures without anyone on the background!

We were only there for two hours as the bus needed to get going to the next destination which was the Salisbury Cathedral.

Our last destination was the Bath – we chose not to go inside as according to the boyfriend there was nothing really much to see inside. So we just roamed around the place and took a lot of pictures.

The tour ended at 5 PM and we got back in London City at around 7-8 pm. It was a very tiring trip but I surely had fun!

Harry Potter – Warner Bros Studio Tour (2015)

Harry Potter will always remind me of my childhood, I was only 10 years old when it released its first movie: The Sorcerer’s Stone – and almost all of my classmates got addicted to it (some even memorised the movie lines)! I may not have read all of its books, I actually don’t remember finishing even one book  – but I never missed a Harry Potter movie in cinemas, so yes, I consider myself a fan and I told myself I just have to visit this when I was in London.

We booked our tickets through Golden Tours for GBP 66 per person (this also includes round trip transportation going to the studio from Baker Street).

I got giddy and excited as soon as we arrived. We didn’t waste any time and started our tour as soon as possible. I even saw a lot of kids wearing cloaks – and it was just the most adorable thing ever.

We spent a little more than 4 hours to tour the place, it was a little bit tiring but it just felt so magical to be here.

 

London Vacation 2015 (Part 1)

Visiting London has always been on my bucket list – when my boyfriend told me he wanted me to visit him for the Christmas holidays, it felt so surreal – I was literally jumping in excitement when he told me the news. I never thought I’d see London a lot sooner than I expected.I had so much fun most especially because I got to see my boyfriend again – after months of being on LDR!

On my first day, we went to Big Ben, London Eye and Madame Tussauds! We took the Tube going to Westminster Station where the Big Ben was located. London Eye was just 10 to 15 minutes away from the station as well.

We walked going to London Eye after we took some pictures with Big Ben – we decided to buy London Eye ticket with another attraction (which was Madame Tussauds) because it was more practical – we spent GBP 39 per person.

I was in complete awe while I was on top, I never thought London was this beautiful, it made me more excited to explore the city!

After London Eye, we knew that the night was still young (and I honestly didn’t want to go home yet) so we went to Madame Tussaud (you can use your ticket within 90 days from date of purchase). It was just a tube station ride from Westminster to Baker Street Station (Jubilee Line).

I highly recommend Madame Tussauds in London – it’s really big (compared to Hong Kong’s) and you really get your money’s worth!
