Science and History!

Today we set off in the car nice and early and headed for one of our favourite cities in the world: LONDON!

On the agenda today: The Science Museum and The Natural History Museum.

Once again we drove as far as Richmond train station and bought our 1 day travel cards (these give us unlimited bus, train and underground usage for the entire day).

Both of these venues are completely FREE to visit. Amazing! We started with the Science Museum. For hours we wandered around the many floors stocked with scientific history. We saw everything from ancient technology to modern technology. There wasn't as much hands-on exploring as we had hoped but it was still a very interesting visit.

We have become quite proficient at the whole 'day travel card' now. To the point where, instead of walking 10 minutes up the road to the nearest McDonalds for lunch, we lazily jumped on a bus and took it instead. Mind you, we had already been walking around all morning. Lazy, though! Yes, we know! In our defence though: it was raining...lol.

After lunch and a Costa Coffee...mmm... we headed back to the Natural History Museum, all quite tired by then and not sure what we would find. Wow!!! What a place!!!

We all woke up very quickly as we entered the extravagant foyer of the museum. You enter main part of the museum (which is itself in a very old building) on an escalator that goes through a massive globe... so cool!!!! To make this experience even better... it was HANDS ON! Loads to touch and see. We all absolutely loved it! We even lined up in an apparent 45 minute queue to see the dinosaur exhibit, which was really only about 15 minutes, but not as exciting as the rest of the museum.

When we eventually got home at 8pm we were very tired but totally fulfilled. A great day!
