So on Sunday my friends and I took a trip to London.It was a celebration of our friend Katie turning 21 (Baby of the group) On Sunday we arrived in London with excitement and anticipation to see The Lion King in the west end. We made way to our Covent Garden hotel and proceeded to give Katie her gifts. The first set of gifts were joke presents that we tried to make Katie think were her real gifts. However, Natalie and I are awful liars and she knew that these were, in fact, joke presents. So we proceeded to give her the real gifts. We then got changed and went to see the Lion King in the West End. It was amazing. After coming back to our hotel, it was time for another outfit change to proceed to what we thought was going to be a night up the Shard. However, The Shard closed at 6 pm and it was already approaching 5:30 and by the time we had got ready and tried to catch a Tube or walk there we wouldn’t have got there in time. I, therefore, suggested going up the London Eye instead as the closing time for the London Eye was at 8.30 so we had plenty of time to get ready and get ourselves down there. The view was amazing, London lit up by the lights of all the buildings and street lamps. It was a pretty experience. After going up the eye, we stopped for a spot of food at TGI’s and after a beverage or two decided it was time to go back to the hotel. As we were walking back to the hotel, we saw that there was a sign saying filming in progress. We were told that it was for a film, but they weren’t allowed to tell us what film it was for. So after that we retreated back to our hotel.
Day 2 we woke up early to make sure we had enough time to do the things we wanted to do. We decided to get a late check-out which meant we could leave our bags instead of lugging them around London. We proceeded to go to The Shard. The lifts were an experience in themselves. They went so fast but once at the top again the view was stunning. The lighting on photographs too were also top notch! After visiting The Shard, we carried on to Oxford Street where I splashed some cash, well vouchers! After Oxford street, we went to get some food and then proceeded to go to the station to catch our Train home.
