News 4 explores historic sites in London before Sunday Bills game

LONDON, ENGLAND (WIVB) — As News 4’s Nalina Shapiro and Josh Reed make their way around London before Sunday’s Buffalo Bills game at Wembley Stadium, they’ve noticed many famous scenes and places one normally may only see in pictures.

After traveling in the “Tube”, England’s version of the subway, the two got out to find the famous clock tower, Big Ben, towering over them.

Along with viewing the grand sight of Big Ben, Shapiro and Reed also made note of tourists flocking to see the U.K. Parliament building lit up at night.

The sights of Parliament and Big Ben have been accompanied by the famous London Eye Ferris Wheel as well.

All of these historic places and buildings sit among double decker buses, old phone booths, and quiet streets.

The News 4 team actually ran into some people with ties to western New York as they arrived across the pond.

“I’m also interested in the other kind of football that they’re used to here, but it’s interesting to see some of my co-workers be interested in American football as well,” says Tim Kindler, a Rochester native.

Abby Paulson, who has family in Depew says, “I knew it was going on because my grandparents are loyal Bills fans. They were season ticket holders for years.”

The Buffalo Bills will take on the Jacksonville Jaguars this Sunday in London, where around 85,000 people are expected to attend.

The Bills previously played in London in 1991, beating the Philadelphia Eagles 17 to 13.
