The final stop on our trip to Europe was London. We stayed in Captain Bligh's home in North Lambeth in the Royal Suite. Lots of royal purple and everything we needed to spend a few days in this great city.
We love going to the theatre in the evening and chose three very different musicals.
The interior of these theatres are full of character, making the performances an experience in its self. On our last night, we sat in box seats for Matilda. Lucky to get these seats at the last moment. At one point, several of the cast members sang a number right beside us!
Our days were spent walking and discovering. We discovered everyone cooling off at Sommerset House as we waited to catch a double decker bus. Regents Park was beautiful, full of roses and paths to be discovered.
Lunch at Covent garden. Paella for me and steak and kidney pie for Dave.
Before heading home on our last day, we visited the Imperial War Museum. Although I had heard my Dad tell us stories of his time in London during the war, the exhibits really clearly showed us what my a Dad and his family faced. We can never know what it was like but now have a better understanding.
