Your memorable Tube journeys
My First Glimpse of London
- sarahbrowngb, CNN iReport producer
On May 24, 2007, I landed at Heathrow airport while on my journey to Kenya. Faced with a 10-hour layover, I purchased a ticket and took "The Tube" into the city. Not knowing where to go with only a small map in hand from the airport, Piccadilly Circus sounded intriguing. So that's where I popped up from the underground system. This photo was my first view of London! He's quite a colorful character for sure! I walked London on foot that day seeing Buckingham Palace, Hyde Park, Big Ben, Westminster Abbey and so much more. It was a day I'll never forget. What a delightful city and a superb transportation system!
