This was our 4th day in London and probably the most tiresome one.
We started our day by visiting The Tower of London. I am a huge Tudor history fanatic and although I've already been here when I was much younger it was great to come back with more knowledge. The tickets are expensive (which is normal for London), so I recommend buying them online, where they are much cheaper. I definitely recommend visiting, because I feel that the London trip wouldn't be perfect without it (but check out some documentaries before you go). 
We continued our walk by the Tower Bridge to the Catherine's Docks (the first city's harbour close to the centre) and after that went to this beautiful place called St. Dunsten of The East. It is basically church ruins made into a park that gives a mysterious vibe. The church was damaged in the World War II and never reconstructed.
After that my boyfriend wanted to see The Arsenal and Wembley stadium and alhough they are pretty far apart we managed to squeeze them in one day. We didn't go inside any of them, because of the price, but if you are in the area visit the outlet next to the Wembley stadium. There you can find shops that are -70% (there are mostly sport shops, but they also have H&M).

Tole je najin četrti in po vsej verjetnosti tudi najbolj naporen dan v Londonu. 
Zjutraj sva obiskala znameniti Tower of London. Sama sem velika ljubiteljica Tudorske zgodovine, tako da sem ob ogledu uživala, kljub temu da sem stolp že obiskala, ko sem bila majhna. Cene kart so precej drage (so tipične za London), zato priporočam da jih kupite v naprej preko interneta. Resnično priporočam ogled, ker se mi zdi, da ogled Londona ne bi bil popoln brez ogleda tega bisera zgodovine (ampak pred tem si poglej kakšen dokumentarec!).
Najin sprehod sva nadaljevala ob Tower Bridge-u, do Catherine's Docks (prvo pristanišče tako blizu centra Londona) vse do St. Dunsten of The Eden. To so ruševine cerkve, preurejene v park, ki izgledajo zelo misteriozno. Cerkev je bila poškodovana v drugi svetovni vojni in po tem nikoli obnovljena.
V isti dan nama je uspela stlačiti ogleda stadionov Arsenal in Wembley, ki drugače ležita kar precej narazen. Nisva si ogledala njune notranjosti, čisto zaradi tega, ker so cene resnično smešno visoke (približno 25evrov na osebo). Priporočam pa nakupovanje v manjšem nakupovalnem centru zraven Wembleya. Tam lahko kupite številne znamke -70% znižane (večinoma gre za športne znamke, imajo pa tudi H&M).
