After we had left Big Ben we went to St James Park. This park is near Buckingham Palace. There is a big lake in the middle of the park and there are lots of trees and fields around it. Many animals such as ducks and birds live there. We were able to hand feed some of them while we had a break. We were also able to touch one squirrel which came very close by. Then we went to Buckingham Palace, the place where the queen lives. Today she was not there but there was much TV there because of a celebration. After having passed Trafalgar Square we stopped at Covent Garden where we were again split into different groups. We had time to go shopping and it was really good. Afterwards we walked back for about halve an hour to Waterloo station where we took an earlier train back to Hook. What a day!!!
