Monopoly run 2010

Finally found the time to report on another busy weekend in London.

All 3 groups managed to successfully navigate their way around the board after throwing their dice and finding themselves going in many different directions. Occasionally we crossed paths but all met up again in Covent Garden where we watched some street entertainers.

Following a hearty evening meal of pizza and doughnuts whilst enjoying a DVD we headed off to Westminster to catch the Tube to the Youth Hostel. Big Ben lit up at night is always an impressive sight.

Following a good night’s sleep we set off to have some fun at the water fountains near City Hall – with most scouts managing to avoid getting wet – some scouts, however, got soaked!! In varying degrees of “wetness” we set off to the Museum of London and after a couple of hours there we left – now all dry!!

Following lunch in Leicester Square and a brief trip to Hamleys we headed off back to Waterloo – pleased to find that the trains were all running on time so we arrived back as expected – with a group of very tired scouts!!

  Most of the photos are now on Flickr – but there are still a few more to upload – hopefully we’ll have done it within the next week.
