London Visit

Before my mocks started last week I got a day off from school. so my family and I went up to London for the day.



First we visited Harrods which is one of my favourite places to go in the Christmas season.
The displays and Christmas specialities inside just put me in such a festive mood. The only think I bought was a donut but it was enough just to walk round with my mouth open at all of the luxuries. There are such beautiful displays and Christmas items that it's just a lovely place to be. However it is always very busy and quite tricky to navigate your way around. But if you've never been I would defiantly recommend you go whilst it's still Christmasy up there. The 'Knights bridge underground station' is a 5 minute walk away.

Next we hopped on the underground again and went to Hyde Park to see 'Winter Wonderland'. It was actually a lot better than I expected it to be. I knew that parts would be tacky and believe me they were, but there were some nice stalls selling things from Christmas tree decorations to chutney.



There were rows and rows of stalls and lights everywhere just making it feel very festive. I think that  a lot of it was overpriced but that's to be expected nowadays at an event like this I guess. I would recommend going if you think you can stand the Christmas music blasting on repeat and the tacky stalls.

After that we went to Covent garden for dinner. Of course if I'm in Covent garden I have to eat at 'Wahaca'. I serves Mexican food and allows you to choose 3 small dishes and then pick and share with whoever you're with. I think this is so nice to do because it allows you to try so much more. Such great food and quick service even at busy times. Defiantly one to try if you haven't already.

After that we walked to the 'New Victoria theatre' to watch 'Stomp'. This was the forth time I've seen the show and I would happily watch it another four times. If you don't know what it's about then it's essentially a group of 8 people making music from things you would expect to find on the streets (pipes, rubbish tins, brooms). This is defiantly not a show for young children simply because of the constant loud music. They make each 'piece' amusing and different from the last. My favourite scene is defiantly the 'newspaper scene' (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1u37-MmecQE) I was in stitches and I had tears rolling down my face it's just brilliant. All of my family enjoyed it and there was a group of business looking people sitting behind me that sounded like they enjoyed it as well so I would tell anyone to go and give it  a go.
