Last week Jon and I stayed in London for a night to go and see Charlie and The Chocolate Factory at the Theatre Royal, West End shows are always amazing and this was no exception, If your looking for a great show to see, especially of you want to take the little ones then this is definitely worth booking, The special effects are great and you can really see how much care and attention has gone into every little detail. We stayed at the the Strand Palace Hotel which is two minute walk from Covent Garden and many of the theatre's so it was really handy for when my feet were hurting and we wanted to pop back and drop the shopping off. Me being me I forgot my memory card for my camera so I had to take all of my photo's on my phone but I didn't really end up taking that many as we were too busy running around.
We spent most of our day there in Covent Garden, mainly for convenience but also because there's so much to do we didn't really feel like going anywhere else and where all the theatre's are is where I like to be. I didn't get to explore the shops as much as I would have liked but I would have needed a few days there for that as I get a little carried away with shopping, Of course I got in a little trip to Mac though as I couldn't resist. We did also pop to Bond Street just for Victoria's secret and to the Rainforest Cafe for the strongest Pina Colada I've ever had because apparently I had a deprived childhood because I hadn't visited there, not going to lie I did enjoy it and nearly came away with a million and one stuffed animals but those teeny tiny penguins were too ridiculously expensive to justify.
On Tuesday we took a wander down to the River Thames and went across the Jubilee Bridge which was all fine and dandy until Jon pointed out that it's the one that swayed all over the place in reality and got blown up in Harry Potter so I got my pictures and got off there sharpish, Bridges aren't my thing at the best of times. We also went to Notes in Covent Garden for a coffee which was one of the best latte's I've ever had so I'm thinking I'll be going back to that one.
What are your favourite places to visit in Covent Garden, or even just in London?
