From Junior Miss Cumbria to Miss Saigon

Hi everyone!

 

 

It’s been quite hectic recently, I’ve been keeping really busy but I had a lovely weekend away last week!

 

 

I went down to London to visit Jack at university. I’d never been to London before so it was very exiting. I got off the train at 5 ish and went straight to M&m world!!!! Who thought of making a shop full of chocolate?! Genius!

 

 

We then headed to The Prince Edward theatre to watch miss Saigon-my first ever west end show! It was simply breath taking. We were also lucky enough to get a backstage tour after the show as one of my friends is in the cast – this was really interesting; it was amazing to see what goes on backstage.

The next day we did a bit of sight seeing; we went to see Buckingham palace, the guards, Big Ben etc, then we went on the London eye which was beautiful – the view was incredible.

 

 

After that we headed to Planet Hollywood for dinner. Just as I thought that it couldn’t get any better, went to watch Billy Elliot!! I’d only ever seen the film so I was intrigued to see what it would be like and I have to say it exceeded expectations; it was absolutely stunning and the music was phenomenal.

 

 

I had the best weekend ever and just to top it off we went to Hamley’s toy store before I went home which was so much fun!! I think I’ve decided that London is my new favourite place and I will hopefully be back soon!

 

 

More next time!
