I love going to the theatre and I don’t get to go nearly enough. I have been a couple of times this year though and my most recent trip was to see Penn & Teller at the Eventim Apollo. When John realised that they were performing in London, he figured things out with work so I could go with my sister and her fiancé and he would have a few days with Erin at home. I have seen Penn & Teller on television for as long as I can remember, way back to when they had cameo roles in Sabrina the Teenage Witch.
I have been to London quite a lot already this year and it’s only June, with another trip booked for a couple of weeks time. I really hate staying in the same hotels in London because there is so much choice. One of our recent stays was in the ibis Styles London Kensington. The ibis Styles London Kensington is situated a 5 minute walk away from Earl’s Court tube station so it is really accessible from anywhere in London. Earl’s Court is also an accessible station which made things a hell of a lot easier having Erin with us. Our
April saw us head to London as a family and with our new(ish) Babyzen YoYo. I had been drooling over this stroller for a while now thanks to one of my friends. I was dreading travelling with the other pushchair we have as it’s so big and bulky. A trip to Cambridge made me realise it just would not cope with the tube and a toddler. This is something I had been absolutely dreading so I thought I’d write about things we did well, things we didn’t and things that I wish we’d done. We arrived in London at
My sister Natalie is back today with the third and final part of her review of the London Stationery Tour! Waterstones 199 Piccadilly Most Waterstones have stationery sections, but the stationery section in this one is big enough to be its own shop. I love bookshops so i tend to pop into Waterstones whenever I see one (there’s quite a nice one near The National Gallery for example) and I always have a browse of the stationery section, since they all tend to sell a nice range of different products. This Waterstones just seems to sell everything stationery related
It seems as though I’ve been to London a hell of a lot recently and actually, I have compared to how much I normally go. Back in April I went for a couple of days away without John or Erin. I chose to stay at the Holiday Inn Express Park Royal which is in North Action. Being located in North Acton means that the hotel is not in the centre of London. The good news though is that you can get the tube to North Acton station and you’re looking at about a 20 minute journey from Leicester Square area.
My sister Natalie is back today with Part 2 of her review of the London Stationery Tour! Liberty of london Great Marlborough Street Liberty is worth visiting in and of itself, let alone for the stationery department. The store itself is beautiful and they sell a wide variety of high market products, from the usual perfume, make-up and clothing, to antique jewellery and home wares from around the world. It’s expensive but not always unaffordable. The home ware department is really quirky and interesting and although a lot of it is well beyond what i can afford there is plenty
Having been to a couple of other Hard Rock Cafe restaurants elsewhere (Rome and Orlando) John and I thought it was a bit strange that we’d never been to Hard Rock Cafe London. We were in London a couple of weeks ago so we had the perfect opportunity! We arrived at close to 12pm when we thought the restaurant would be packed. Although it was getting busy there wasn’t a wait for a table and we had plenty of choice of where we could sit. We were seated quite close to the toilet and baby changing which was perfect as
John and I got married in Florida in 2013. While we were there we went to Ripley’s Believe It Or Not and it was so much fun. We recently had the opportunity to visit Ripley’s London and we couldn’t wait! Ripley’s London can be found smack bang in the middle of Piccadilly Circus. When we arrived Erin had just fallen asleep! Typical and very bad timing. However, we were heading home that day so we couldn’t wait for her to wake up and it’s a good job we didn’t as she ended up sleeping through our whole visit to Ripley’s!
