London day 1

Yet again it's taken me over a week to post these still I hope you enjoy them.

The day started with a trip to The City (Threadneedle st etc, sorry no pics) then we got on the Docklands Light Railway where they have driverless trains and just to prove it we sat right at the front and took a pic :)
Our destination was Canary Wharf


After there we went to the Docklands museum and went round the Jack the Ripper exhibition they have on right now, very interesting but no pics as they weren't allowed
Next we went to Greenwich with the hope of visiting the Observatory and the Meredian line but it had already closed :(
So we walked down the side of the Thames towards the Millennium Done (now the O2 arena)

Then we walked back down the same stretch of the Thames and got on one of the boats to Waterloo passing Canary Wharf

Under Tower Bridge


The Tower of London


St Paul's Catheral (you can only see the top from the river)


Because we packed a lot into the day I'm splitting the pics over two posts to aid loading
