It was early morning, and I retired to my bed after a bashing night-out. My phone ringtone blew up to its loud voice. I was drowsy and sleepy too. With lazy hands, somehow I managed to get to the phone and answered. Heard a familiar voice from the other side, yes, it was Uncle Jones. We had a great time with Uncle Jones a few years back when I was his next-door neighbor. Later when I joined King’s College London, I had to change my room. We spend great weekends together. My initial drowsiness and laziness went off in a while, and I jumped up on my bed. I thought there would be some exciting news from him. Yes, it was indeed. Uncle Jones informed me that he got a new car and we are going to drive through for 2 days this weekend at Liverpool and next day to Cardiff. I was pretty excited and thrilled as a weekend trip from London to Liverpool and Cardiff by car would be fun and amazingly interesting.
My roommate, Suzana decided to join us on this amazing trip. Uncle was punctual with time, and we started early to avoid traffic. We filled the car tank to the full and are all ready to enjoy the lovely ride through the highway connecting London to Liverpool. We had a lovely drive enjoying the pleasant weather. During the early morning, nature is always at its best. We reached Liverpool perfectly on time and it was 10 am. We have the whole day ahead to explore the beautiful city that has excellent museums, amazing galleries and unique historic buildings. We visited all seven museums that Liverpool has. They are the World Museum, Merseyside Maritime Museum, Walker Art Gallery, Lady Lever Art Gallery, International Slavery Museum, SUDLEY House and Museum of Liverpool. By afternoon we visited the Strawberry Fields, Penny Lane, and the Cavern Club. We had an amazing time out there by gossiping, chatting and taking photos. It was almost evening, and we decided to visit the SEFTON PARK PALM HOUSE where the shooting greenery mesmerized us. We ran out of time to visit “The Beatles Story” which is an amazing world-famous attraction. On our next visit, we are definitely going to make it. We drove back with full energy as the next day we are going to visit Cardiff.
Cardiff to London is only 3 hours 6 minutes driving and is only 243 Km by car according to mileage calculator. Today we planned to travel towards the western side of London. As usual, to make our day big, we started early morning, so we can enjoy the drive all along. It was, as usual, an amazing experience. Uncle Jones informed that he tried to arrange a ticket to see a rugby match at the world famous Millennium Stadium, but unfortunate to get it, as we planned the last minute. This stadium all-round the year attracts thousands of rugby lovers as because the capacity is huge and all the big matches are being held here. However, on reaching, we had our first stop over here and we gazed the splendid beauty.
Our second stopover point was The Wales Millennium Centre that comes among the top 10 tourist spot in the United Kingdom. I had heard about this spectacular place many times, that day witnessed with my own eyes. Our next stop-over was the Cardiff Castle, a former Roman fort that mesmerized us with its archaeological beauty. We witnessed a sight having a historical background of more than 2000 years. We further visited St Fagan’s National Museum of History, Cardiff Bay and a Science Museums, TECHNIQUEST. We strolled out a bit here and there, enjoyed some chilled drink and finally need to move back to our home. We started driving back from Cardiff to London, and the journey was as pleasant as we expected. We travelled enjoying the cold breeze and remembrance of our entire day experience. We bid goodbye to Uncle Jones, and he promised us to accompany on few shorter gateways for a break. It was really an amazing weekend trip from London to Liverpool and Cardiff by car we would be remembering for a long time.
