Autumn London Trip.

Hello everyone! A couple of weeks ago now, me and my family spent the weekend down in our fantastic capital city: London. We had a fantastic time, I LOVE the city and everything it has to offer. I want to share with you everything we a got up too, in the hope I can inspire you to go down south and experience the crazy busy, but wonderful city.

Method of Travel to London: Coach £15 return each, from Sheffield to London. £80 cheaper than the train! How amazing is that?!

Where we stayed: Travelodge- Waterloo. Great place, super clean, great location and extremely friendly staff.

6 Things I would RECOMMEND when visiting London:

– Buy theatre tickets on the day of the performance, it saves you so much money. And get them from a little ticket booth in Leicester Square.

– Wear extremely comfortable shoes.

– Use the tube to travel – £6.50 for the day to travel in zone 1 (the touristy places!)

– Visit M&M world- it’s like chocolate heaven!

– Go on a boat cruise, you learn so much and see things you never would on land. And you can take some amazing photos!

– Go and see Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and Matilda in the west end! (Blogs to follow reviewing each show!)

I really do hope this post has inspired you to visit the fantastic city! There really is so much to do and learn and I can guarantee you will have a great time. We certainly had a really lovely, jam packed, weekend down South! I really hope to visit again soon! I’ve shared some of my snaps too, I hope you like them. 🙂

Have you visited London lately? Can you recommend any places I can visit next time I visit? I am fascinated with the city and would really love to learn more, let me know below..

Take care,

Emily Jane xo
