We started today with a nice breakfast from a Bakery/Cafe in Cambridge which was followed by a nice relaxing punt. We had a private boat down the River Cam past a lot of beautiful buildings. There was a mix of housing, colleges and churches. All buildings with river frontage have heritage protection. We went under Issac Newtons Mathematical bridge. There is a story that it was held together with no nuts and bolts, then one day some students pulled it apart to work out how he had done it. Unfortunately to get it back together they had to use nuts and bolts!
We then drove back to London where we are staying tonight. We checked into our hotel an then wandered around the corner to Kings Cross Square chilled there with some Pret A Manger for lunch. We have enjoyed this a few times. After lunch we made our way across to the London Eye. We had hoped to do this with the others, but didn't expect it to shut so early it is very surprising that they do not operate it during the evening to see the lights of London. Today was a great day for the London Eye as there was practiaclly no queue when we arrived. We have been a bit disappointed to not be able to see Big Ben as it is covered for cleaning and repair. Lucky today we managed to get a great pic of us with Big Ben in the background thanks to a green screen! After doing a lap on the Eye we went into a 4D London Eye movie, and then we went down the Thames on a riverboat cruise. This gave a great view of a lot of the sites. All in all we actually did a fair bit today. It was a great bonus afternoon.
