- from London to Liverpool Virgin train journey -

There are multiple railway terminal stations in London、To Liverpool this time, from Euston Station located on the north side of London。

The left side of the above figure is the London Underground map、Euston station of Westminster station and the destination of the departure point that was expressed by a thick line of red。Complicated because the character is small、I made a simple map to the right figure。Circle Line's from the nearest station of Westminster Station from Big Ben、Or take the District Line to the Emberment Station next to one station、Transfer to the Northern Line and go to Euston Station in about 6 stations。

The London Underground has a lot of ups and downs、Retention suitcase ran desperately so tight cutter 🙁 And time is barely。

Ticket but it was paid in advance online、It can also be discovered in this automatic ticket vending machines。Of course also OK at the counter。

No Japanese is unfortunately。If you want to buy the new”Buy”。If you have purchased in advance in the”Collect”choose。

If you are pre-purchase、As credit card that was used to settlement is to bring so necessary。Like from security reasons。

Three will be issued。The image is has become a return ticket from Liverpool、Because I forgot to take a picture of the ticket to go。Tickets will be collected when you get off 😥

Arrive at the last minute 2 minutes before departure。This is the Euston Station Virgin Train platform。

The train has already stopped。Find the vehicle in your seat and board。

The inside of the car is like this。The luggage storage corner can be seen slightly to the left of the center of the above photo.。The chair is also reclining and spacious。

On the Virgin Train, you can check the seat reservation status at the top of all seats.。In this case, both are "RESERVED", so the window side、That reserved to the aisle for both。

Vacancy window side is "AVAILABLE" in the example of the above photo、You mean yo There are people passage side is coming aboard from "RESERVED FROM RUNCORN" So Runcorn Station。So、Or they did not like their own seat、There is also sit looking for a vacancy in the case luggage storage in the vicinity of the seat was full。

By the way, I had reserved a window seat、There was a person sitting for some reason。Perhaps the person on the aisle moved to the seat because the window was open.。I thought I'd complain、There were quite a few vacant seats so I decided to look for a seat。The first car seemed to be for people who wanted to use it quietly in a silent room, so I moved there and took a seat。Of course, you can make mobile phone calls here.、conversation、The sound of eating meals is not allowed。So you can sleep slowly 😛

A magnificent natural landscape just minutes from London! Is it the cathedral that can be seen in the distance?。

The same countryside scenery continues, so you can feel at ease 🙂 You can see a lot of sheep and cows.。

The first arrival station "Nuneaton"。Pronounced Nuneaton in Japanese。Located on the east side of Birmingham。This is a very famous place in British history、But why、Because it was the battlefield of the Battle of Bosworth during the War of the Roses.。

The Battle of Bosworth、It ’s similar to the Battle of Sekigahara in Japan.、It is said that it was a battle of the world division。1485War broke out on August 22 year、It was carried out between the Earl of Richmond Henry Tudor of Lancaster faction that fought the throne against King Richard 3 into the world of the yoke faction (later Henry VII)。Win or lose a big left and right was of the Stanley brothers betrayal (do to hereabouts also Hideaki Kobayakawa、It is similar to the battle of Sekigahara there was a betrayal of the Toka Yasuharu Wakisaka 🙂)。The winner becomes the Lancaster school、Henry Teyuda opens the morning Teyuda、Himself became a king becomes Henry VII。Also hit in his clan famous Elizabeth I in the Battle of the Armada。

History lecture aside、It is arrived at Stafford。Here is the north side of Birmingham。I There is a sign of TESCO。It is the UK's leading supermarket something become indebted to the time of travel。Waitrose is because a little expensive、It would be good to buy in TESCO is such everyday products and simple snacks。

Yes。Stafford station arrival。Hmm? ?? What is The University of Opportunity? ?? I used to attend a college in England, so I was familiar with universities in England。I'm sure there wasn't such a university at that time ... I was curious and looked it up, this is The University of Wolverhampton、It seems to be the University of Wolverhampton。By the way, Opportunity means opportunity.。

home pageIf you read”The University of Wolverhampton has always been a place of opportunity, offering students, whatever their background or circumstances, to fulfil their potential and realise their career ambitions in partnership with a supportive community.“That of the。In summary, "regardless of background or environment、When given the opportunity to satisfy the students of the potential and what you want of them with the University of Wolverhampton "。

Attitude to put majestically this kind of nickname under the station name sounds interesting。

Goodbye Stafford!

Yes。Once again enjoy the great outdoors 😆

Clew! Crewe, not Crewe。Finally, e is created (it looks like Anne of Green Gables 😎)。

This is the turning point of the railway。Do you go to Glasgow here、Do you go to Edinburgh、Or is it Liverpool?、Will you make a J-turn to Birmingham again?。In other words、Transfers occur depending on the destination。I'm riding for Liverpool so I don't need to change。It's easy

There was a hotel in front of the station so I took a picture。There is no particular meaning。

This is the next station。Contact、It's a lamb banana。

Liverpool if there is a history that started the import and lamb exports for the first time in the world banana、at that time”Super Lamb banana”It was named。so、Image banana tail is attached to the body of the lamb (lamb) was created as a symbol of Liverpool。It is this”Lamb banana”。

Moreover, Surprisingly、This Ramubanana say they're going I made the Japanese that Chie Kura Taro!

so、Station that had this Ramubanana Where I Runcorn (Runcorn)。Station just before the Liverpool Lime Street Station。Another Liverpool is a stone's throw!

It has been gradually landscape also look like a man-made from nature。

Finally this is arrived! Here is a railway terminal station of Liverpool Liverpool Lime Street station (Liverpool Lime Street)。

Wide wide There is only the central station of truly Liverpool。People will come down with the droves from the train。Time now is 11:05Or much。That the departed London 8:15About 3 hours because I was around。It is quite a long train journey。Also we return also ride but I。

The front portion of the vehicle that could not be seen in a hurry when you ride。Naa contains the pretty seasoned。If there is a thing to be first-class in this train、And you can train used by the snacks and drinks you can drink in the lounge before starting with the purchase of the ticket、Also you get a meal with more in the train。Well It was a journey of at most 3 hours、Even in a normal car, unlike the economy class of airplane because the chair was also comfortable、It did not Takanozomi until there。

Bronze statue of Ken dot and Labor Party politician Bessie Braddock of Liverpool born comedian。Interesting something that is by comparing the comedian and politician。

Upon exiting the station、Somehow great crowd。I wonder what are you doing。

In front of the station bulletin board”We will remember”It is shaped。It seems somehow grand ceremony。

A collection of amazing black clothes。

All the time you have people up to the inner part is dense。

Actually tribute of this ceremony is 100 anniversary of the Battle of the Somme。This day is November 13, 2016、Exactly 100 years after the Somme battle。Somme of the fight、The largest battle in the First World War、1916Lasted from July 1, year to November 18。It is an Allied United Kingdom、Conflict with the French army and the allied forces in Germany。Location France、Picardy region of Somme。It is what was done in the bottom of the Somme River。The results are the outcome Tsukazu。Both the military did what a shame that pay a great deal of sacrifice。

People of Liverpool as well so that it does not happen again such a war、It will open the ceremony doing this。Ah ~、I guess it was early in the morning black clothes who were in London also participants in this ceremony。It has been found by now!

so、Here is Liverpool Lime Street station。Good to see in the photograph is this landscape。It is a station in the center of Liverpool。I'm also running subway。

Effortlessly cross the main street, even while rolling the suitcase because as the road is closed half。I I'm there is a prima facie signal machine was not nearly function。

Ah ~、May see the famous landscape wonder if Koch。The time being taken but the weather was a shame bad。

So you toward the hotel to the station after。Goodbye Liverpool Lime Street Station! !

The next is the tourism of Liverpool City。First of all we should go even to the Beatles tour?

London tourism - Elizabeth Tower (Big Ben) -

Victoria Station from Buckingham Palace、Westminster Cathedral、And via the Westminster Abbey will head to the Elizabeth Tower。Although it may be some people unfamiliar because Elizabeth Tower、I think it can be understood hear that Big Ben。2012Elizabeth II's reign official name to the 60 anniversary of the year has been changed to Elizabeth Tower from Big Ben。

That from Buckingham Palace toward the Big Ben through the Westminster Cathedral。If you want around the place was the main London、Across the street from Buckingham Palace to Piccadilly Circus、Leicester Square、It may help to go to Big Ben through the Covent Garden。But、This time, the I guess I should go to the south side of London to the main。It is also less time because they must ride in the 8 o'clock train、Yes because quite around hard I south side even think of trying to keep to go to one of the now。

From Buckingham Palace south of the spool-loaded into the palace grounds outside。We will walk along the right side of the road to the palace。Straight ahead until the end of the road turn left at the breccias advertising Place Street started to come across the boulevard。

Turn left this scenery is visible。By the way, here is which is the maximum of the Terminal Station Victoria Station entrance London。

Cardinal Place entrance。Business hours are 9:00Not yet store is open because from。The Tteyuu Cardinal Place、3That of office buildings and shopping district of commercial comprehensive facility that is configured from One of the building。51,000Against m² office district、9,300M² of commercial premises、What construction cost is 200 million lbs! ! And was built in 2005, it has been in good condition unbelievably。

Well Innovation we will go to here of the direction 🙂

Nostalgic and vodafone! Predecessor Ya ne of you know J- Phone。Carriers disappeared almost a figure from the country in order to Softbank's acquisition of J- phone in Japan。Still it is active in Europe。Just really London ♪ in crowded Ballmer London bus


Cardinal Place seems to each building is connected by a corridor。Even so, I wonder lonely anyone without a vibrant because no 😥 and turn around behind the ......

Westminster Cathedral。Not 's temple is the "Cathedral"!

Head temple this length ーーーー have tower (the name I St. Edward tower) is characteristic of the UK Catholic Church。Inside the arch is a beautiful Byzantine style。Business hours are 9:30Since the put not ...... but、In fact, I so had studied in previous United Kingdom Have you ever entered into at that time 😛

Admission is free。It's parents was also wearing a hat in together at that time、The man was told to remove the hat。Apparently、Like not a man unless remove the hat in the UK Catholic in the Cathedral。after、5, you can climb to the St. Edward tower height of 83m by paying pounds。

Directed to this destination Elizabeth Tower and after the Westminster Cathedral ('m not a temple!)。That on the other side just across the street”House of Fraser”British department store that。Relatively reasonable places like John Lewis Toka Toka Debenamuzu like a young man was also on target。Well, now the time is of course open Masen

Purring pull while about 5 minutes a suitcase。Oh Aa Ferris wheel can be seen! Whether there is not a London Eye? !

Arrived at Parliament Square。Westminster Abbey, which has finally come! Not 's Cathedral is the "temple"! The Westminster Abbey and the earlier of Westminster Cathedral、And Palace of Westminster Houses of Parliament and purchase decisions in mind that all of different things。

This temple is against the Gothic style、Previous Cathedral Byzantine style, such as、Many different things、Furthermore, since the Westminster Abbey is a temple of the UK church、Completely different from the United Kingdom is the head temple of the Catholic Westminster Cathedral。If you make a mistake it is scolded for those eager Muslim 😆

Another angle。And quite whether it can be seen that it has continued in the back。

Westminster Abbey is、Along with the Palace of Westminster has been a World Heritage Site。Venerable place where coronation and the Royal wedding of the king is carried out。Successive kings and Newton、If there is a tombstone, such as Shakespeare、It is that there is a great honor to be buried here。

In fact, completely financially independent management。In other words、Ise Shrine something like that referred to in Japan that have not received any assistance from the country and the Church of England。Since the admission fee of 20 pounds (2017 current:60Years of age or older、student、Family discount available) and fairly your high How can please give paid not spared 😀

It should be noted、In advance if you're going to admission ifOnline ticketSeems a good idea to buy the。Need I do not because there is a risk that lined up in the ticket purchase it's around noon And the weekends and efficiently buy weekdays。

This is adjacent to the temple of St. Margaret's Church。Here that Winston Churchill was wedding。Toka's popular blue stained glass tourists in and watch。This is by all means the person who is your time so put free。Because Some fine people who are resting lying down in the church before the lawn。

Here Parliament Square as the beginning of this Lincoln、Nelson Mandela、Mahatma Gandhi、Winston Churchill, etc.、A lot of bronze statue of the great man! Winston Churchill image is not oriented in the direction of Parliament、Great image from which eleven are installed counterclockwise。In fact Toka's first woman scheduled to image is added here to Millicent Garrett Fawcett in 2018 (Dame Millicent Garrett Fawcett)。The person who was instrumental in women's suffrage、People Raicho Hiratsuka like a say in Japan。

It should be noted、right now、Since Nelson Mandela of removal is being discussed、I might soon no longer possibly。

Elizabeth Tower that star performer appeared Big Ben! The world famous Houses of Parliament and the clock tower in the United Kingdom of attractions that everyone knows。The time is 7:40So pedestrian traffic is small。We have guards that Katsui the gun is the gatekeeper。Scary 😥

This watch, such as the small bell is made every 15 minutes、Bell is a mechanism in every hour。And it begins with the familiar "Keane corn Khan corn ......" in the classroom chime of schools in the song to become a noon Japan "Westminster bell"。Probably the most familiar classical music for the Japanese。 

There is Victoria Tower。Ah、Or Big Ben's was supposed to be unified to the Queen of the name in the Victoria Tower and Elizabeth Tower in that it has renamed the Elizabeth Tower 🙄 In fact, now the name in 1900 before I was was the name I this Victoria tower even before King Tower you went become。

UK Parliament is not extend to the north and south along the River Thames、The north side of the Elizabeth Tower (Big Ben) House of Representatives on the side of assembly hall、Senate assembly hall has been placed on the south side。

that? A lot of strange black clothes。I wonder what are you doing?

Black clothes to fill the road。There was no time to ask a question but unfortunately as it is to the nearest station of Westminster station。Here the station was very to walk with a suitcase because there is no slope on the up-and-down is intense 🙁

Now、Also come you is this a temporary farewell this time。It should be noted、Since the meet again in the next article and black clothes us spoilers at that time!
