London Trip

We had a wonderful day in London and learnt lots more about The Great Fire of London! First we visited St Paul's Cathedral where we enjoyed sketching the beautiful Dome and saw some statues that were damaged in the fire in 1666. In the crypt, we saw the tombstone of Sir Christopher Wren who designed St Paul's Cathedral after it was destroyed in the Great Fire. We then enjoyed a walk on the Millennium Bridge. We looked at the London skyline and compared it to the skyline that would have been there in 1666 at the time of the fire. It was very windy on the bridge! After our lunch we visited The Museum of London where we saw some amazing things including a leather bucket and an oven the same as the one that Thomas Farriner would have used. We even got to try on some fire helmets! What a fantastic day it was!
