Day Trip to Portsmouth
We are four au pairs and we shared a car to go to Portsmouth for the day. The journey was easy from London. There is a huge shopping centre called Gunwharf Quays which has most things at half price. The centre has an ice rink in the middle and nice places to eat. There is also a historic dockyard nearby with famous old warships, which was fun to visit. It was a great day out. (Aneka, Holland)
Fun day in London
I live outside London but one day me and my friends went to have a culture day in London. We took the train to Waterloo and then walked beside the River Thames to the Tower of London. I used my student card to get a cheaper ticket (£8 ) to go in to the Tower. There were free guided tours inside. Then we walked back past St Pauls Cathedral to the MilLennium Bridge and crossed over it to the Tate Gallery. This was free to go inside and interesting because it was very modern. (Lydie, France)
