    A postcard from London

    Dear Dave,

    I’m having a great time here in the beautiful streets of our capital city of London. I have been to two of the most amazing and biggest landmarks like Big Ben and The Houses of Parliament. Let’s start off with the Visit to Big Ben.

    I got a ticket at the front desk, and went inside I was looking at the history, (did you know that Big Ben as only had one proper repair since it opened?) Next I walked up in to the room where the bells are. It was incredible, there were such big bells it was unbelievable.

    My Highlight of the two trips however was going to the Houses of parliament. I walked up to the front door and it suddenly swung open there stood Mister David Cameron. I said hello to him and he said Hello back I asked him where he was going and he said that he was going out to lunch. What you’re about to read next is totally unbelievable ……. He asked me if I would like to go to lunch with him so I said yes we went to a fine Chinese cuisine place where you would order something on a list and they would get it for you. Once I finished my lunch I went back to my hotel room, (which is where I wrote this postcard.) I had a lovely time today and I’m looking forward to seeing you when I get back on Monday.
    Yours sincerely Aidan.

    One day I was on my computer playing and then I found a postcard at the door and I looked at the stamp. IT WAS FROM LONDON! I was shocked. I turned it over and it said that I need to go to Buckingham Palace. When I went to Buckingham Palace the next day, the queen was waiting outside of the gate for me.
    I was thinking why I am here

    When I got out of my car outside of humongous Buckingham palace the queen said to me that I won the jackpot of money. I asked how much it was and she said that it was £100,000,000,000,000.
    I was shocked, it blew my mind! She asked if I could come in, I said “Yes,” but when we were inside someone else was here. I was scared; I looked around to see what it was, but I saw nothing. I looked around again to see if I could see the person. I saw him, he was… James Bond! I said to the queen that James Bond was here and she said “is he!?”
    I shouted “James Bond!”
    James Bond said “dang it!” We had some tea and some food.
    I said “I should be going now because I need to get back to my wife.”
    She said “OK,” and that she would give the money on the weekend
    I told the my wife everything, and they lived happy ever after.

  3. Dear Family,
    I am writing to you because I want to tell you about my absolutely amazing trip. As you can see on the postcard I went on a super sightseeing adventure around London. This trip was scary at sometimes but also fun I literally have never seen any think like this, a bridge that rises nearly has high as a building, the queen’s palace that is the size of 2 football pitches and a clock which sounded like a massive gunshot when it chimed. This was the best holiday ever and Ill love you to come with me we should start saving up for next year.

    Yours sincerely,
    Dominic

    Dear Holly

    Can you believe it? I am here in London at last!  It was a long trip on the aeroplane but jet lag in not affecting my ability to go exploring. 

    The weather her is changeable, and I’ve been caught in a few showers.  The family I’m staying with have been great, and we’ve been to lots of interesting places. Yesterday, we went to Buckingham Palace, but unfortunately the Queen was not at home. We also got to see Tower Bridge, and the the road was up, and so we watched a very long, tall ship pass slowly through. After the ship passed through, we saw Big Ben and Westminster Abbey. Both of these buildings looked beautiful in the sun.

    What are you doing, then?  I miss you and can’t wait until I see you. I hope you’re well

  5. Dear Grandma and Grandpa,
    When I went to London it was a bit gloomy and cold. In Mauritius it must be boiling hot! We went to visit Buckingham Palace where the queen lives. A man was doing a tour around London showing us all the famous and interesting parts of London. We were all getting cold even though we wore many layers. The weather didn’t bother me so I’m okay.
    We went onto the London eye and I stood there. It seemed like I was an eagle about to catch my prey. The London eye went slowly which was good because I could observe the beautiful, brilliant, blazing view. Big Ben had a clock on it which made it look amazing. If I had forgotten my watch then I wouldn’t need to worry!
    I saw the Tower of London. The Tower of London is a tower attached to a bridge. It was wonderful visiting London, I wish you came! I’m sure you would love it apart from the terribly cold weather.

    Dear Mummy and Daddy
    On Monday we went to the Tower of London. It was amazing! At lunchtime a cunning raven hopped sneakily onto the wooden arm of my chair and stole the rasher of bacon out of my egg and bacon sandwich! Suddenly a Yeoman of the Guard sprinted over to where I was sitting waving his arms around like an animated scarecrow, shooing the midnight black bird away. After eating what remained of our lunch, we went to see the Crown Jewels in all their glory. The clusters of diamonds in the crowns shone like stars on a clear winter night. All the guards were glaring at me as if they expected me to steal them! I was glad to get out into the cool, fresh Spring air.

    Today we went to the Natural History Museum. We studied the scary, but magnificent and impressive Dinosaur skeletons, we went into the Hall of mammals and observed the school of whale skeletons hanging from the high ceiling, the Insect Room looked like a plague of insects had come and the Charles Darwin Evolution exhibition, showing the changes of various creatures down through the centuries.

    Tomorrow I am hoping that I can visit the world famous toy shop, Hamleys to buy a teddy bear as tall as a giant and as soft as down. I can not wait to see you when I return home.

    Postcard from London
    Hello Amy, it has been a long time since we met. As you know, I used to live in Leyton but know I have moved to the capital of Great Britain(London). I really like it here because I get to visit so many places. My dad has made a company and gets paid billions a month. Me and my family live in a enormous house with maids and servants. Even though I have been here for only two weeks, I have made lots of new friends at my new posh school (Saint George`s school of London). My friends all send their greetings to you! Tiki, Milkshake (my new dogs), Mum,Dad and Lily (Do you remember Lily, my twin?)all send their greetings to you as well.

    What is it like in your country? How are your family doing?

    Maybe we can become pen pals.

    Love from your cousin Rachel.

    Hi,
    My name is Bill. I love playing tennis, in fact I am world number two in the world… (well for kids I am). I have an older brother Jake and a younger sister Lucy. They both love playing tennis as well, so they are a bit jealous about me being ranked number two on the planet. Well maybe not a BIT jealous more like EXTREMELY jealous. They both hate me for it, but they all have their chances, as I tell them.

    I’m going to Wimbledon today, for the junior world finals against the world number one “Julian”. He has a good serve and hits the ball hard, I struggle against him and he notices that. But I don’t care I’m going to smash him today, I can just feel it in my bones.

    I am now walking at onto the court and I just give him a stare to make him feel worried. I get onto the court and smash him to pieces. All the crowed are cheering for me now encouragingly, only because I am match ball up now and I’m going to make sure I win and that’s what I do, I went and won. I get off the court and went straight into the locker room, to have a shower. As soon as I went to get in, I saw an old postcard amongst the cobwebs. It had all of the landmarks on it, it was amazing. I decided to get out of the shower, then put my clothes on. I would then write the postcard to my family and tell them how I got on before the press conference, so that’s what I did. This is my letter…

    Dear,
    Mum, Dad, Jake and Lucy.

    I hope you are all having a great time at home.
    I WON!
    I am now the world number one.
    I smashed him to pieces, and when I was match ball up, all of the crowed cheered for me!
    I hope you are having a great time at home,

    Lots of love Bill. Xx

    Dear Keelan,
    I have had a mind blowing time, I’ve visited Tower Bridge,it was as tall as a giant. I had no clue but the architecture is beautiful in Westminster Abbey. Buckingham Palace is fantastic, everything is so grand and posh. Big Ben is a clock that can touch the magestic,blue sky. This is a recount of my holiday.

    I got off the crowded train into a bustling crowd trying to get to work.I could see lots of advertisement boards.With a slite chuckle I thought, this is London. I clambered up the many steps to the street. I saw a sign saying Barbican. Honk car horn could be heard from anywhere.

    Night was drawing in the dark, grey sky thundered lightening over London.I went into a souvenir shop and bought a cuddly teddy bear in a beefeater suit; I thought I may give it to you. The wind was torrid now so I decided to go to sleep.

    Dear Mother,
    I am having a fantastic time exploring the streets of Central London. I have seen so many great land marks like the London Eye, Big Ben, Buckingham Palace and the Natural History Museum. It has been raining quite heavily for the past few days but who cares about the weather? I am still having fun. My hotel room is very luxurious and spacious. The staff are so patient and kind. Though I am having so much fun, I still am missing you. Hope you are feeling ok.

    Dear Mum and Dad

    I am having an amazing time in London, just asking if you are OK, but while I am here I just want to talk to you about the one direction concert.

    On the way me and Francesca walked passed Buckingham palace and it was stunning. We then we arrived at the O2 arena, it was massive. When we arrived we went to our seats, it was amazing because we were in a box and could see them really clearly, also there was chocolate cake and I thought it was delicious! My favorite song was ‘Best song ever’, because it was really catchy and had a good beat to it.

    On the way home we got lost and we were really scared, we thought we should ask someone, so that’s what we did. The person we asked wasn’t just an ordinary person, believe it or not, it was NIALL HORAN, we where amazed. So we asked him for directions and obviously his autograph, in marker pen on my hand.

    Having a great time, see you soon!

    Dear Millie,

    I have heard your still very little and love to play lots of games. How do I know this you may ask, well your excited mum wrote a card to me. London is still as large as over 137 football pitches and is also very colourful! It’s magnificently magnificent.

    My school is giant and very impressive. School has 2 or 3 really boring classes like reading and comprehension, but all the rest are exciting. Our school dinners smell great and taste great to. How is your scruffy school in Washington.

    I have already seen Kates tiny baby Gorge and he was so cute. I call him gorgeous Gorge because he is beautiful. Your mum also said in her card to meet you at Disney Land next week and we can see Micky Mouse, and maybe we could touch a sketch from Frozen!

    Millie your really brave to live in Washington I’ve heard it’s awful there. I think your as brave as a lion. I know its going to be hard to be patient till next week but can do it.

    Yours sinserally Daisy Parker

    p.s. I’m looking forward to seeing you next week.

    Please reply

    Dear Bob,

    I’m having an amazing time here in London. I’ve done so much, so I’m just going to tell you the best three things.

    The third best thing was going on the enormous London Eye! You know how I’ve always been terrified of heights, well I think I might have lost my phobia of it now. It took me about fifty feet in the air! Wow, I can still see the view of nearly the whole of London. It was terrific.

    Now, you probably want to know what the second best thing was, it was the changing of the Gurads at the palatial BuckinghamPalace! I know you might be thinking why, but seeing all of the Guards marching in unbelievable co-ordination and their graceful stalllions prancing to perfection was amazing. However, the highlight was seeing the Queen arrive in her luxurious horse drawn carriage.

    However, I’m sure you’re desiring to know what the best thing was, so here goes….THE TOWER OF LONDON! The gigantic building stood proudly, just outside of the station Tower Bridge. I was gaping at the size of it. I decided to go on a tour and half way through I started to try and make the Beefeaters laugh. It was no use as their faces remained stern. I loved the exercution room but the highlight was the galmorous and priceless Crown Jewels. The glass was bullet proof so no-one dared to try and break it.

    I can’t wait to see you soon.

    Best Wishes

    Your mate Thomas

    P:S: You’d love it here.

    Hi Nanna,

    You will never guess what happened in London last week ! Iwas happily enjoying myself on the London Eye going round and round when all of a sudden i heard an ear splitting noise. Before I knew it the London Eye was launched into the air and then we landed excruciatingly on the road . We rolled the whole way through London and past amazing things like: Lord Nelson’s Column ( He was waving to us ), the Lion King Musical with every animal and character waving to us and last but least the National History Museum with a dinosaur peeking cheekily out of the window.
    After such a long dayit was time to go home. I had roaring fun with everyone and I will never forget this day.
    Love Isobel

    To my oldest cousin

    I am in the spectacular city of London. My brother and I are really enjoying the scary London Dungeons. It is really freaky, because everyone is dressed up in creepy costumes and they leap out at you from any dark rooms. One of the spookiest was a man telling a weird story and all of a sudden it all went pitch black and when the lights came on he had disappeared. Then he jumped out just in front of us…everyone screamed. We have learnt all about the old torture instruments! You would not have wanted to be caught doing anything naughty in the 1800’s….Ouch!

    Hope you are well?

    Dear Lauren,

    This fantastic place is beautiful! Nevertheless it is very cold, with blusters of wind and cloudy skies; I watch them through my huge window in the fabulous, luxurious, spacious Hotel Giraffe! I have made many friends along the way including having a special honour from the gracious majesty, the Queen Elizabeth the 3rd. Cantankerous people don’t exist here in Britain, it is only joy and happiness fighting agaist the harsh, wild, squally winds.

    Alternatively, I could of stayed in my opulent, sumptuous, affuent, deluxe, grand, magnificent, elegant hotel but I didn’t, because I wanted to explore and discover what Britain has to offer! In addition I went on the humongous, terrifying, immense London Eye! Like a ferris wheel it spins around and around fairly slowly as people gasp at the astonishing, breath-taking views, seen from high up in the clouds. Soon after that, I took the long journey, on the subway, to go to the London History Museaum! *Dramatic music* I learnt about the facsinating history of London past and the horrifying fire which all started from a oven! Shakespear and Charles Darwin were amazing thinkers the most fasinating i’ve ever heard! Charles Darwin created the suspision of Evolution, isn’t that crazy?
    Next I went to Buckingham Palace, a wonderful place with jewels, paintings and fine dining the most expensive and extraordinary features I have ever seen! As I walked through the exhilerating palace I wondered what Britain had for lunch so I went to go and find out……. Chips, Fish fingers, sandwiches and wraps are the few things that I had and it honestly surprised me!

    Later that day, I went onto a miniture boat to go and sail the Thames! People used to polute their…. toileties and doings, (Ew smelly!) which soon got resolved by resovers and manufatorours cleaning proccess. It was a huge river, very long and wide it was undesribeable!
    Finally I went to the tall deafening, boisterous, booming Big Ben with a ear-splitting clang every hour! My neck was aching from looking so high, the tour guide even let me take a ‘neck break’ which made me giggle. Unfortunatley I wasn’t able to enter the symbol of Britain becuse of building stuctures and workings. Nonetheless, I was able to climb to the very top of St. Pauls Cathedral! The gob-smacking, goose-bump,hair- raising, gasping, never-ending feeling of the astonishing, exhilerating, soothing rush of the landscape sent chills up my spine!
    Sadly this is my last day in Great Britain and I have enjoyed every last second of it, I hope I can come back with you one day and you can truly discover for yourself how amazing this place really is!

    I hope that you’re well, I’ll be back soon to you in the U.S.A shortly.

    Yours,
    Jenna Clark

    Dear Bob,
    If you were wondering why I was and still am away, here’s why,
    I ‘m in London, on a 4 day tour around it, so far we’ve been to,
    Buckingham Palace, The Houses Of Parliament, Tower Bridge, The Tower Of London and Nelson’s Column. The place is like one of Claude Monet’s paintings, just not Lilly Pads and 100 times better!
    We’ve still got to go to, The Piccadilly Circus, West Minster Abbey, Harrods and Selfridges (when we go to Harrods and Selfridges we will get to buy souvenirs) is there anything you want?
    From your brother, Tim
    P.S Write to me if you do want anything.

  20. Dear Trevor,
    I have been staying in London recently. It was Great. On the first day I visited a war memorial, which was pretty boring, but after that we went to Big Ben, The thing is huge! I thought it must have taken millions of years to build, but it turned out it was only a few decades. Sadly the next day we were leaving, but on the way back it turned out our house had been eaten by a mutant squirrel! So we moved back into London, and now I can see Big Ben at will, just out of my window.

    Dear family,

    London is amazing! I have visited four famous landmarks: Big Ben, London eye, Houses of Parliament and London bridge. I am staying at the Grand hotel in Central London.

    The hotel is a five star palace. It’s colossus and beautiful with a giant garden between the stands ( the stands are the blocks, east, west, north and south ). I am on the seventh floor in the south stand, which is the highest floor, hence I can see everything. The people here are so kind and polite, they always ask me if I’m alright.

    Everything is so wonderful except for the rain. It has been raining for two weeks now, non stop! I have had to wear my boots every time I have gone outside; it is different from Albania since it’s always hot. However, it’s not the weather that’s been bothering me it’s not being able to be with you. I have made some good friends at the hotel but it’s not the same. I wish you were here with me so we could spend the time together but Melissa and Henric have school.

    Lots of love,
    Emanuel

    P.S I have bought something special for all of you!

    The Unknown postcard with an unexpected delivery
    The trees, as green as a carpet of emeralds mixed with the greenest leaves, danced under the blistering sun as Sally[me] and my wonderful mum Kate where frolicking in the park. My mum dressed up in her finest clothes for the finest day.
    We trampled upon a mysterious post card left in the arid, barren weather. It looked like a bomb had hit it. We picked it up in disgust, smudged all over our faces. The moment we touched it, something strange happened. A whizz of electrical impulses went through our bodies. It lifted us high into the air. It held us tight. We were afraid and unable to escape it. I peered at my mum. She was pale and white as an aberrational ghost. I remained strong for her. In front of us a gateway or beams of light were exploding dancing. A portal opened to another dimension.
    We were so surprised that we sprung up into the sky. I wondered what was on the other side.
    Would you be shocked if you found an extraordinary portal after picking up a filthy post card?
    The crowd at the park was staring at the portal as if it was a rare diamond . They did not blink for what seemed like years. They were transfixed. We decided to go inside. We went and……POW!!!!! I was there in a flash; as fast as a strike of lightning. We were given magic swords with enchant sprinkled all over the handle and blade.
    There was danger. The danger was a 13 headed dragon that can breath fire from its slimy mouth. I exclaimed to my mum while trying to get her attention, “We have to destroy the portal!” ‘The only way to do this is to go through the portal into the world I know’ I thought to myself; with a casual grin. We exited the portal
    “We have to destroy the portal or else it will come into our world and be an execrating threat to mankind!” screamed Kate. “yes I know mum.” I responded.
    While the livid dragon was impending death, we were trying to destroy the abnormal portal by repeatedly stabbing with enchanted swords.
    We found the weak spot. I stabbed it and……BANG, BOOM, CRASH!!!! The world and the portal was exterminated.
    We could hear the screams of souls.

    Dear Choupi,
    How is the weather in Chelmsford?
    Here in London the weather is brilliant.
    A perfect day for a trip!
    The cotton-wool clouds a distant specks of white in the blue face of the sky. The sound of chaotic screaming and shouting can be heard from the other end of London! The crowds are massive. All you can see is a painting of different coloured t-shirts. As I’m writing this letter I take a glimpse of Big Ben towering over the streets of London. Did you know that Big Ben isn’t the name of the clock but the bell inside it? My curiosity takes over me as I find myself peering through an everlasting queu. There it is. The wheel of the London Eye. Have you ever been on the London Eye? You will find that it moves extremely slowly but it is the ideal chance to take a view over London. Have you ever seen a street show? Some of them are fascinating. You will be able to see magic tricks, eating fire, getting out of ropes in under three minutes and more extraordinary tricks. London is a place of great beauty with its magnificent parks and attractions. Hopefully next time you’ll be able to come with us and see these wonders for yourself.

    Lots of love,
    Sasha

    Dear mum
    I have arrived in London! Today i did some phenomenal things around London, and the best thing is there’s more to come!!!! Here is what i did:

    Firstly, we headed to one of the greatest Ferris wheels in the world the London eye. A beaming smile came across my face, when i saw the height of it. I rushed with the whisper of a soft breeze behind me. As i entered the pod i jumped excitedly up and down as we started to move. When i reached the top, the clouds were hovering past and the lake was shimmering below. I was the King of the World! When the wheel slowed down I heard the trill of blackbirds as we moved on to the next place- House Of Parliament.
    When we arrived my face lit up at how big it was. We first entered Big Ben to see the clock works. Although they were damp and crooked they still looked spellbinding. We then entered the House of lords and where the Lords sit. By this time i was hungry and we went to Covent Garden.
    As soon as we got there the scent of honeysuckle wafted in the air. Where we sat was clusters of petals like pink confetti. As the final glimpse of the sun dancing on the leaves we left to the final venue- The Shard.
    As i stood at Europe’s tallest building, adrenaline was pumping through me. I got in the elevator as i gazed to the top. My pulse was racing but, when i got to the top i was amazed. I couldn’t have wished for a better day in my life.
    I love you lots and i can’t wait to see you in U.S.A.
    Love Tom xxx

    To Grandma and Grandad,

    Today was a truly crazy day! I visited the London Dungeons with Sophie, Katie and Nick. When we strutted into the first room we had high spirits and were absolutely certain nothing would stand in our way. We were wrong!
    By the time we were in the fourth room our knees were banging together and we were scared out of our wits! (Except Nick of course!) This room happened to be an outdoor scene and, looking around I noticed that surrounding us were spidery tangles of trees and thorns, cobwebs clung to the bare branches and ivy choked the thick tree trunks. I reached out but before I felt the needle-sharp points, the tree gave a tremendous ‘creek’ and fell over, blocking the path, that was as dusty as a book from the seventeenth century. Immediately the tour guide led us to the nearest fire exit and bundled us outside into the freezing cold.
    “Thank you for coming and have a joyous day,” he announced, as if nothing had happened. We ran to the exit feeling relieved but strangely disappointed and luckily Mum was there to greet us.
    By the way, I got this from the gift shop. See you on Saturday!
    Love, Rosie.

  26. Sandhana says:

    ” It’s raining again ” I said running into any shop that was closest to me. “excuse me but which shop is this ?” I asked to the person at the tile while drying my hair with my hanky.
    “Gift shop next!! ” said the person pushing me out of the queue.
    “How rude” I mumbled. I strode along the card section looking at the fascinating pictures on the cards. Then my eyes set upon a card that said London on it. I picked it up then I thought it would be a postcard for my best friend Kathy. I quickly brought it and wrote in it

    Hi Kath

    Its bit rainy over here But except that its been great and really fun!!
    see you next week xxxx
    When we came back from our different holidays we were bursting with news . “so hows it been.” she asked.
    I could tell that I were going to go to London again.

  27. Raiyaan says:

    One beautiful morning, Jack woke up in his colossal bedroom, stretched his arms and opened the curtains. He gazed outside and saw the postman just put a letter the mail box. I immediately got dressed out of my onesy and ran rapidly down the stairs. I opened the porch doors, put on my jacket and wondered who the letter might be from. Maybe it was bills or maybe it was an advertisement. Or maybe it was from her mum in London. He slowly opened the mail box….
    It was from her mum in London. It was a postcard, asking whether I wanted to go and stay with her in London. She also said we could go to fun places everyday such as Big Ben, Tower Bridge, Buckingham palace and much, much more. On the back were photos of all the places she had mentioned. I was thrilled. I gazed longingly at the photo of Buckingham palace and saw how picturesque it looked.

  28. Chris says:

    While I was studying in my peaceful room, I suddenly heard the mail being delivered. As quick as a flash, I raced down snatching the letters from the postbox and to my surprise, was a letter from my dear old friend Harry. How long I’ve waited for him to reply to my previous letters; now he has sent me something. Curiosity got the best of me as I ripped apart the shiny envelope finding a vivid picture of London. After some time passed gazing motionless at the beautiful picture, I turned the card over and read out loud:

    Dear Tom,
    Hope you are having a great time in Alps, I imagine you are skiing on the soft, glistening snow. Anyway, here in London I am having such a great time that I cannot describe it. During my time I have been here so far, I have been abled to venture Buckingham Palace and to my luck I got a chance to meet the queen. As well as this, I have had the chance to visit Tower Bridge; it was so fascinating when a colossal ship came drifting by and the two parts of the bridge split up and opened to make a wide space for the ship to pass through. In addition, I went to see Big Ben just as it was about to strike twelve. I was so lucky that I climbed to the top and looked down, the view was spectacular! The cars were like tiny ants and the people could be hardly spotted. Finally we went to Westminster Palace but unfortunately we did not get the chance to see something special.

    P.S. Hope you come soon!

    I was amazed were Harry had went and I was willing to go to London with Harry.

    Dear Mum,

    The school trip is really cool! I am enjoying it so much and just writing a postcard to ask how you are and if everyone is ok? What’s the latest then? Any news? We went into Buckingham palace and met the queen! Inside it is stunning and the queen is really kind. We all got to shake hands and we met prince Harry, William and prince Charles.

    Love from Leila

    P.s cant wait to see you on Friday!

    The robbers of London

    There’s something going on, I just know it. My life normal like anyone’s though. My dad is an inventor and has peculiar inventions that have proportions a bit like robbery tools. My Mum is a gymnast trainer and is very flexible for her age but retired when she noticed she was training treacherous thieves. But Mum and Dad have sending an awful lot of postcards of landmarks and mysteriously been creeping out of the house late at night.

    Well this night I’m planning to follow them. I slipped on my thermal tracksuits and ran down the slick path after the chugging Ford Fiesta. They raced down the roads skidding across the pavement. After racing past Tower Bridge I saw them park the car at the Tower of London and I was astonished when I saw Mum back flipping over the lasers into a restricted entrance and them climbing into the jewel room. And why is my dad using a slipper a laser cutter? No! My parents are thieves. I can’t believe it! But why have they been sending mysterious postcards to the Police I thought to myself?

    Half an hour later…

    My parents ran out the Tower of London with huge money bags and the wailing sirens of the police cars were on. They rapidly sent a postcard with the Tower of London picture on it and dashed away home skidding across the pavement of London Eye. I took my shortcut home through the tunnel and just had enough time to slip into pyjamas before my parents arrived home.

    I noticed that they hadn’t been out of the house or any huge bags in the laundry lately. Maybe they saw me. Maybe they didn’t want anymore money. But I’m glad that it stopped, whatever happened.

    Dear Bob,
    I’m missing you,
    if you were wondering why I was and still am away, here’s why,
    I’m in London, on a four day tour around it, so far we’ve been to,
    Buckingham Palace, The Houses Of Parliament, Tower Bridge, The Tower Of London and Nelson’s Column. The place is like one of Claude Monet’s paintings, just not Lilly Pads and 100 times better!
    We’ve still got to go to, The Piccadilly Circus, West Minster Abbey, Harrods and Selfridges, (when we go to Harrods and Selfridges we will get to buy souvenirs) is there anything you want?

    Dear Auntie Mandy

    Hope you are having a wonderful time in Devon as we are having a fabulous time in London. I didn’t realise that London was so big until now! My legs are really achy as we walked up the 311 steps to the top of The Monument. I could see the whole of London when we got to the top and stepped out onto the balcolny, it was really high! After that, I had a rest on the London Eye instead of walking around. I had fun spotting all the boats on the River Thames and the best bit was seeing Big Ben and The Houses of Parliament. While we were there we walked past Buckingham Palace and we even played cricket in St James’ Park. After playing cricket Mummy said that we had been so good that she treated us to a delicious ice cream. I had a Double Decker and Bee had a Ninety-nine. We went to a shop nearby called Hamleys (which is an enormous toy shop) and Bee got a toy London Bus and toy London Taxi and I bought a remote controlled helicopter. In the evening we went to the theatre and we watched The Lion King – it was breathtaking!

    Wish you would be back sooner
    Love

    Dear daddy, 1858
    London is horrible daddy there is waste all over the place. London stinks too! It smells of dung and the stench is unbearable! Some people use the the floor as a toilet. Despite the smell, there are good things about London too! Apparently London is the best place to train for medical purposes.
    I love you
    I will see you soon
    Love Jill xxxxxxxxxx

    My trip to London.
    In London I saw purple sky and a little breeze as I travelled to the theatre. I felt as squashed as a bean in a can on the train but still it was excellent. We travelled as fast as lightning. I went to see stomp, it was really extremely loud. Now I can’t stop playing at home. After, we went to the Monument it looks as old as the queen. It was not very wide and it was scary inside. It was really tall and you can see Big Ben from the top.

    Dear Paul,
    Recently, I travelled on a bus tour with some of my friends and family. We went to Trafalgar Square, we saw the national history Museum! Also, there was a blue rooster that is on the jersey of France’s football team! We saw the amazing statues of: Nelson Mandela, Winston Churchill and William Shakespeare!
    Moreover, we also learnt that the Queen is the only one that is permitted to drive without any number plate. We travelled on an outstanding cruise along the river Themes. It was awfully amazing! Although it was amazing, it was also petrifying!

    Dear Bob,
    I’m missing you and,
    as you know, I’m in London, on a four day tour, so far we’ve been to, Buckingham Palace; the most gargantuan building you’ve ever seen; The Houses Of Parliament; in there, they are so incredibly formal that half of us on the tour didn’t understand a word they were saying; Tower Bridge, The Tower Of London; the worst thing about that is that they’ve put up some heads on sticks to prep for bonfire night and they are so realistic, that a lady fainted and was taken to hospital and Nelson’s Column. The place is like one of Claude Monet’s paintings, just not Lilly Pads and 100 times better!

    A Postcard From London
    Dear Susana,
    I am really missing you a lot since I am all the way in London and your in San Diego. I know I have been in London for two months now ,but I have not made friends yet. So it is extremely hard not having my best friend around to comfort me. London is exciting and fun. You will never guess that I want to the houses of PARLIAENT! and of course the tower of London.
    During our stay in London, we visited different kinds of shops to buy souvenirs and key rings. We also visited my grandma and grandpas house. Since it was Christmas, they roasted up a fat juicy, luxurious turkey with delicious roasted potatoes with fresh green peas at the side. This surely was my ideal Christmas dinner. Living in London is fantastic and I hope you come and visit sometime.
    love from your bestie, Zoe

  40. My trip to London
    Today my family and I went to London for my birthday. I was just so excited! We arrived at the station and didn’t have to wait too long before we heard the distant sound of the train speeding down the track like a leopard.
    We all jumped on the train as it briefly stopped to pick up exited waiting passengers. I was the first one on and saved all of us seats. The ride seemed to take forever but only really took 35 minutes! Looking out of the window I watched the world whizzing by in a flash.
    We all got off at Fenchurch Street and had a long and interesting walk to the London Eye.
    It is huge, almost as big as a giant! We queued up and waited for our slot, the excitement was immense. We finally boarded the pod and off we went.
    We floated through the air and could see the whole of London!
    We saw the Shard, Big Ben, the Gherkin and Tower Bridge to name but a few.
    The River Thames winded and floated its way through London and I enjoyed watching the boats sail up and down.
    I had a great day and enjoyed the views, and hope one day to visit again.

    Dear Aunt Lucy,
    Thank you very much for the new fresh stock of marmalade that you got me from Peru, I loved it!

    Since you can’t come to London (Your number 1 dream place that you wanted to go) I decide to tell you what it’s like here. First of all the Brown family (My guardians) have taken me all over the place to give me the best information about London. The food here is marvellous, you can get all sorts of exquisite food here but my favourite type of food was Fish ‘n Chips because it tastes like crunchy fish. Second f all I like the weather here because you can get various types of it like sunny, hot ,cold, rainy, snowy and warm, the weather can also help us get marmalade because we need some rain to make our marmalade. The newspapers give me lots of information about London and also I’m in the papers because I caught a robber stealing wallets from my best friend working at the antique shop.

    Love you lots and lots,
    Paddington bear

    P.s I’ll try and send you a new type of food, it’s called jam!

  42. Dear Nan and Grandad,

    I absolutely 100% love London, I loved visiting The London Eye. When I was little we went on The London Eye and I thought it was astonishing, as we went round we got higher and higher we saw loads of sights like Buckingham Palace, The Houses of Parliament and Big Ben ,which was really noisy when the new hour strike it went “DING DONG. ” Then we went for an underwater adventure in the Sea life Aquarium ,which was fascinating, we saw loads of colorful fish like dangerous sharks, smart otters and funny puffer fish.While we waiting to go on a submarine the tour guide asked loads of questions and told us loads of interesting facts.I loved my day in London. I still do love wonderful busy London.

    Dear Granny,

    I can’t wait to share what I experienced in London last weekend. Every time I come I discover something exciting and new. This time it was the London Eye, the immense Ferris wheel, located in the heart of this exquisite city.
    As the ring regally rotates I am lifted high in the sky and the vast landscape opens beneath my feet. I can’t take my eyes off the river that’s slithering through the city and glistening in the bright sun. People, buildings, cars, boats seem so small that they could fit in my hand!
    Next time you visit London you absolutely can’t miss an adventure like this.

    Ksenia.

    Saturday the Fourteenth January 2013

    Dear Jessica,
    I hope you are having a lovely time at your new posh house in California and seeing as I am not there with you, I shall tell you what is happening here in England. It is so peculiar not seeing your scintillate smile every weekend when you come round to ours for a sleepover. I think my mum saw my long face and, being the kind person she is, she asked if I would like to go out to somewhere to cheer me up. I agreed and said I would really like to go to California but she just shook her head and beamed. “I know you’re missing Jess,” she started, “But we can’t go over to America because we haven’t got enough money and we haven’t booked a flight” So that option was ruled out. In the end we both decided that we should go to London and perhaps buy me a puppy. Here I am now sitting on a bench with an umbrella over my head (It was chucking it down with rain) writing my postcard to you. Talking of weather, I bet it is really sunny where you are and I would give anything to be with you sharing our secrets together like we always do. I’m sorry if this postcard did not reach you by Sunday, but I guarantee that I will be sending many more throughout the year. Maybe we could see each other in the holidays? Or would that be too much to ask?
    Your BFF and great companion,
    Mackenzie xxx

    Dear Mum and Dad,
    Ryan and I are having a fabulous time in London. How are you? You won’t believe what buildings we’ve stepped into: The Gherkin, (unfortunately we had to go to the loo and people could see through the transparent glass), Big Ben, the London Eye and the Tower Bridge. All those were huge! Also, this is so funny,…we were in the same restaurant as David Cameron and Queen Elizabeth. We would like to inform you that we are coming home tomorrow.
    Love from

    Dear Tim and family,
    I am having a great time in London, please reply back and inform me on what’s happening in Canada, I heard there was pink water when you turned the tap on! I recently saw the Big Ben and the houses of Parliament, it was splendid. Today we’re planning to see if we can visit Theresa May on 10 Downing Street. Yes and I know you are wondering how the fish and chips tasted and they were delicious, but the streets were busy, also it was much rainier than Canada, but not as snowy.

    Hi Nanny!
    Mum, Dad, Mya, and I are going on a trip to London for these summer hols. We had to prepare because I am told that NYC is very different to London. Thanks for all the supplies to note down everything and anything we see. I’m so exited!

    Day 1: We tried some British fast food. We were careful it didn’t run away from us. Out of the whole of London our hotel was in the top 5. Pretty unbelievable right (I guess it comes with it’s cost).

    Day 2: We went on a tour bus with headphones and additional features so whenever we passed a famous land mark it would tell us its history. In-between there was some varieties of music on every language but the really funny thing is whenever the person started to speak we had to rush to our language to hear the person speak.

    Day 3: Our last day we enjoyed ourselves by going to a theme park. I will always remember this holiday break.

    Hope to see you when we get home (if we want to).

    PS. Come to London so you can see I am not lying.
    P P S. Love you lots.
    P P P S. We will give you a present if you give us one.
