Today we took the bus to Westminster Bridge and had a walk around Westminster Abbey. The Architecture is just lovely. They really knew how to build great buildings.
We then walked over Lambeth Bridge to see the Olympic Rings on the Thames.
Then it was a short walk to Whitehall to see Downing Street.
The Horse Guards were on duty at Horse Guards Parade.
We stumbled across one of the post boxes that have been painted gold to celebrate with our Olympians.
We eventually found out what the mascots for the Olympics actually are. They were 2 pieces of steel which dripped on the ground as they finished the last piece of steel for the Olympic stadium!!!
Wenlock and Mandeville are their names. They are placed at all the tourist spots and painted to look like something to do with the monument or place.
