As I got off the tube, and made my way up the Westminster underground station, I don't recall having any thoughts on what to expect when finally arriving to the street level. I knew this was the station I had to get off to see Big Ben, but had no idea how far I would have to walk before running into it. When i finally exited the station and walked out, I noticed a crowd had gathered right in front of the entrance to the station, everyone seemed to be in awe, taking photos and pointing upwards. That's when I made my way through the crowd and saw Clock Tower for the very first time. Photos, movies, and the tower's specs simply don't compare to how impressive and massive it is in person. The tower is literally right across the street from the station, and to me, it was such a lovely sight, I remember smiling as I gazed upon the unique and detailed architecture, while grabbing my camera to snap some shots of it. Overall London was a great city to visit, and I had a great experience, I hope to go back soon. Hope everyone enjoys the photos.
Such Beauty.
I would love it if I could go to any of these places, makes me excited to hear more about your adventures.
@danidee Ah understood, and no, unfortunately I wasn't able to ride on it that time around, due to timing and budget (literally spur of the moment trip), but I did go around the area. There's a few restaurants inside of a building right behind it, you order from them and then hop aboard one of the capsules. I hope you get to visit London though, way bigger city than I expected. I knew it was big, but not as big as it turned out to be.
@danidee YES! there's a special feeling and reaction when you finally see something so iconic and historic for the very first time in person. I have never been to the alamo, is it really that small?
I bet seeing it in real life is SO surreal. That's how I feel whenever I see a popular landmark. (Minus maybe the Alamo in Texas. That thing was SO small.)
