2019 SPC Tour of Ireland - Day 13

2019 SPC Tour of Ireland - Day 13

We made the most of our last day in London. Walking through the gates of Lord’s, we were ready for an extensive tour of the home of cricket. The view of the pitch from the Long Room, the Players’ Change Rooms with their detailed honour boards and the actual Ashes were of great interest to the boys but the highlight was the pod shaped Media Centre.

Now experts on the Tube, we raced underground to Tower Hill  for lunch and a tour of the Tower of London. Given it is one of the top three tourist attractions in London after Buckingham Palace and Westminster Cathedral, it did not fail to impress. The White Tower, built in 1066 with its cache of Medieval Armoury and the ravens made an impression. The Beefeaters and the pomp and ceremony of all who worked transported the boys back in time.

We returned to the hotel for a change of dress and copious sprays of Lynx ready for our final night on the town. This comprised of dinner at Brown’s and a West End show, School of Rock. The boys had great time and we returned to the hotel on a high ready to pack for our flight home tomorrow.
