Day 3: Fleet Street Tour, British Museum & Tate Modern

Today was very historical, nonetheless. We were taken on a walking tour of Fleet Street by our tour guide, Sophie, who was very nice and appreciative of our group. I was very impressed with her knowledge of the area, and I learned a lot during this tour! Fleet Street is symbolic to journalism because it was the home to newspapers until the ’80’s. Sophie knew every single bit of information about each area that we traveled, and I was excited to see how much she loved and appreciated British press. Fleet Street still remains interchangeable with the British national press, and it holds a lot of history in this field.

We then walked to the British Museum, which was filled with historic artifacts from each country all over the world! I especially appreciated seeing The Rosetta Stone and the Egyptian mummies! This was a very cool experience, and we were blessed with perfect weather. A few of us ate lunch at a local restaurant, and I had this really good deep dish lasagna. It was heaven in my mouth!!

Finally, we made our way to Tate Modern. We rode the elevator to the very top, which overlooked the ENTIRE city. It was one of the most beautiful views I had ever seen…and I later showed my friend a picture who said it looked like the scene from a movie. Little did he know…it was! It overlooked The Millennium Bridge, also known as “The Wobbly Bridge” from Harry Potter.

Today, although very long and filled with events, was exciting and I learned way more than I had expected! I will never forgot the view from Tate Modern, by far one of my favorites of all time!
