The London Eye and Robert Bladen-Powell Service at Westminster Abbey

December 10, 2013

One of our daughters was chosen to go to London with the Girl Guides for a service at Westminster Abbey to acknowledge Robert Baden-Powell, who founded the Scouting movement, and of course the former World Chief Guide Olave Baden-Powell.

They are both buried in Kenya, but there is a memory stone to them in the south aisle of the abbey, where wreaths were laid.

A photo of the wreaths laid can be found here on the Girl Guiding website.

Of course whilst she was down there, she took in a few of the sights.

London is a fair way from us and so she had not done the London Eye before.

The views from the top were very impressive.

I was surprised at how high it goes. Just look at the view down onto the Houses of Parliament below. You would need to be in a helicopter to take that photo.

So if you are thinking of going to London, our daughter recommends visiting the London Eye.
