Welcome to London at night time. I'd like to welcome you to the London of my story, The Night Porter.

In my story, the night porter, Max, takes Robert on the London Eye at sunset. Max is a romantic, and he wants to show Robert a truly magical part of London. I take all my guests on the Eye just as the sun is setting. There is something about seeing the city light up as you slowly rise over the London skyline, that you don't get during the day.




















We get in the queue and just as the colours are turning from blue to pink to gold, we start our journey. If we look left we can see the Houses of Parliament with Big Ben. By the time we've finished it, the building is golden in the dark night sky.


Behind us is the IMAX


And if you look to the right you can see the Thames snaking away in the distance with Canary Wharf in the distance so I have to put in a picture of a Dalek. 






I have a competition to say thanks for visiting me. Please leave a comment here to go in the draw and two people will have a PDF copy of either Nothing Ever Happens or Morning Report.

 


Please make sure to tell your friends about us and take the whole tour during 16th to 23nd May. There are lots of awesome prizes to win. KAY SPRINGSTEEN is taking you to Yellowstone Park next. Have lots of fun xxx

  3. Lovely photos -- The London Eye would be a good idea for a date... IF you're getting on well; I can't believe how long it takes to go around, so slow! Now that would be a great place for a proposal! Esp at sunset :)

  13. Oh, I've always wanted to go to London! And, I'll get there someday soon! Though the London Eye sort of freaks me out a bit; I hate to say I'm a little wary of heights!
