Sharing my love of London with you today. Visiting London, England with my husband and in-laws was a dream! I can’t wait to show you the pictures. If you are traveling to London anytime soon, make sure you see some of these places!
One of the best parts of London is going to the theaters. This is the theater where we saw Agatha Christie’s play Mousetrap. It’s London’s longest running play. I love a good mystery.
We also were able to see:
Phantom of the Opera
When the sight-seeing is done for the day, it’s nice to go relax at the theater in the evenings. We bought most of our tickets online before our vacation. It’s cheaper and you can make sure you get a seat!
This is a quiet little neighborhood right in the middle of London city. It’s not far from Westminster Abbey, which is a busy hub of London. But this area was so quiet and calm. I loved the cute houses.
On the other side of London, near Stepney, we also visited the oldest pub in London. Now, I’m not a drinker, but I went there because my ancestors lived in this area during the time that this would have been here (so I figured they must’ve had a drink or two there). We visited it for a sandwich at lunch time. So much history in London! More on this later!
And of course we cannot forget the many museums in London. There are so many museums, it’s unbelievable (and some of them are FREE!). One of my very favorites is the Victoria and Albert Museum (and it’s free admission). The building itself is AMAZING!
Inside is all kinds of pieces from history from around the world. It focuses on how people lived–their furniture, clothing, jewelry, and way of life. You can see ancient items from China, Japan, Europe, and of course England. See my Jane Austen attire in the photo? I was in heaven. Lots of statues and sculptures too–beware if you have little kids that are not ready to see nude statues.
So here’s the first taste of London for you. More to come . . .
