As I’m sure you’re all aware, on Wednesday London was sadly subject to a terrorist attack on Westminster Bridge and the Houses of Parliament. But we can’t let these people scare us away from our capital, and that’s why I want to take part in the #reclaimthebridge campaign, something which I was made aware of by a Facebook friend. The campaign is to share your memories or photos of Westminster Bridge to show that we as a nation will not let the terrorism destroy our memories – and future memories – of such an amazing city.
I have two photos that I would like to share, the first is a photo of Westminster Bridge and the Houses of Parliament. This was taken from the top of the London Eye in May 2016, which for me was just one part of a lovely weekend spent in the capital with Amber. I couldn’t wait to get on the Eye and see all the sights from such a spectacular angle, especially as Westminster is my favourite part of London.
The second photo I’d like to share is of Big Ben and a sign for the London Underground. This has always been my favourite photo I’ve taken in London, and it was taken in October 2015 on my first visit to London; the weekend that I fell in love with the city.
I refuse to let anyone, especially terrorists, stop me from visiting a city that I love as much as London, and I can’t wait for the next time I get to visit. Westminster and the surrounding areas hold so many of the iconic landmarks: Big Ben, the London Eye, Buckingham Palace and Downing Street to name a few.
