Welcome back gentle viewers,

SO last week i ventured down to that their London, that right our fair capital itself. The primary reason for my visit was to see Miranda on tour at the O2, which was enjoyable. however i am not here to review said show.

Instead i’m going to share the rest of my trip over 2 posts. Firstly we booked into a relatively budget hotel, which was actually very nice, the Thistle City Barbican. located close to Old Street Tube station (Northern Line), for a 2 night stay was £178, for twin room and Breakfast.

As we were there for 3 days the best way to get around was by Tube, the most economical was to invest in an Oyster Card. and believe me we made full use of the underground!

No trip to the capital is complete without something touristy. This time i chose the London Eye, and not just any old trip round, the Champagne tour.Booking online meant getting a discount and the advantage of knowing what time we were had to be present. the tour includes queue jump, reduced numbers per pod and a lovely glass of cold Champers and some simply stunning views of the City skyline
