Arrived at Heathrow at 5.55 am. Despite very stiff and exhausted from the very long trip, everyone was excited to see London. We met with Martin who took us on a tour of many interesting places in London. Visited Piccadilly Circus for morning tea and to investigate Lillywhites, the large sport store. Then it was on to Trafalgar Square, Big Ben, Westminster Abbey, Buckingham Palace, Coventry Garden for lunch. We were very pleased to witness the "Changing of the Guard", where we were able to get photos with the very stern guard. It was time to travel out to our hotel where we enjoyed a well earned shower! After dinner and some shopping for water and fresh fruit, we headed back to the hotel for bed. How good is it to sleep in a horizontal position! Bring on day two.
