The Past Few Days...

Hello again everybody :) As some of you might know if you read my last two posts I went to London on Wednesday and got back yesterday. I thought I'd give you a little insight into what we did while I was down there. On this trip with the school we didn't visit the most noticeable sites in London properly - the London Eye, Big Ben, Houses of Parliament - because we were so busy doing history things! However I wasn't too bothered as I have seen them before on different trips to London.

We got the train from Newcastle to London at 7.20 am and arrived in London around 11am - midday. After we checked into the hostel we got a couple of tubes and a bus to the Apollo Theatre where we saw Wicked. It was really good and the main character's voices were amazing. It truly was Wicked! After tea we went to Covent Gardens and lets just say me and two friends had a very funny night - including hiding in the boys bedroom when the teacher knocked on the door! hahaa

After getting up at 7am and leaving the hostel around 9am we travelled on the tubes and the buses and went to the Imperial War Museum. It was really interesting and as me and my friend Sarah went around the massive Holocaust Expedition we had to try and stop ourselves from crying. From models of Auschwitz, to images of people from the camps, their stories to piles of shoes found after the allies went into Germany. It truly was a great experience. Afterwards we visited the War Cabinet Rooms from WW2 where Churchill and Generals stayed. It was amazing to think we walking along the corridors that Churchill had!! It was really really interesting.

Later on the night time we went on a Ghost Walk. It wasn't scary but it was pretty interesting. With one ghost named something very funny hahaa.

After breakfast we travelled to Kings Cross and stayed there until our train arrived. We arrived back in Newcastle at 2.45pm - right on time!


At 7/8pm I went to the cinema and for an 'early birthday' meal with my mam, dad and two of my brothers. I have eventually seen the third Narnia - the voyage of the dawn treader! Yey! I was not surprisingly knackered when I got home and was in bed by 10.20pm.
I have to say it was much better than the 2nd film but in my eyes nothing can beat the first film: the Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe. - That one is just so Christmasy and makes you feel warm inside!

Hope everyone has a had a great week because I sure have :)


  1. Sounds like a wonderful adventure. & I still want to see the third Narnia. Loved, loved the first one. The second one was okay. But nothing beats the books. They're a dream. ♥

  2. Thank you - I've only read the first book but the first film is just amazing :) x


thank you! your lovely comments always put a smile on my face :)
