Tour de France – London

For the third stage of the Tour de France we went to London. We decided to go to the Fan Park at Green Park so we could see a big screen and enjoy the atmosphere.

We had some food when we arrived, I shared some tartiflette with Paul.

We explored the area to find a spot to watch the race. We were right by Buckingham Palace at the end of The Mall.

We decided to get close to the finishing line and ended up at 300m to go sign on The Mall.

Unfortunately it started to rain just before the cyclists arrived. We were quite a way back from the barriers so I couldn’t get any pictures of the action. They were going so fast it was all a bit of a blur anyway! It was really exciting to be at the finish.

We have really enjoyed our three days with the Tour de France, the crowds and the atmosphere have been amazing.
