Después hicimos un paseo por la ciudad y vimos algunos monumentos y lugares turísticos. Cuando llegamos al centro, nuestra profesora nos dio una hora libre para comer en el parque. Por la tarde visitamos una galería de arte y al final fuimos al teatro para ver un espectáculo. Al final, regresamos al autobús para volver al colegio. Fue un día fantástico pero agotador y me gustaría volver a Londres muy pronto.

Afterwards we did a tour of the city and we saw some monuments and tourist attractions. When we arrived in the centre, our teacher gave us a free hour to eat in the park. In the afternoon we visited an art gallery and then we went to the theatre to see a show. Finally, we returned to the bus to go back to school.
