Although I have been to London countless of times since I was a kid, the place still fascinates me, I love arranging trips down for weekends, booking a show on the West End and doing a lot of shopping! As much as I moan about Oxford Street, I always have to pop over for a gander, especially now as its all decked out in lights and decorations. However my ultimate favourite place to visit in London has to be Covent Garden, just something about it that I love. I never used to when I was younger, but since I've got older I've learned to appreciate all the stalls in the market.
Last weekend I went down for my best friends birthday, we arrived on Friday night, checked into our hotel and ordered pizza, the following day was a super busy one, we spent the morning and early afternoon shopping our socks off, before heading back and getting ready for the rest of our night. We had a reservation at Big Easy (insert big grin emoji) and Les Miserable, We both ordered the Lobster Bake, and it was amazing, with a mix of lobster, crab, mussels and prawns in a white wine sauce. It was literally so perfect I ended up eating with my hands. I cannot wait to go back. I'm just a little sad there isn't one in Nottingham. After dinner we walked over to the Queens Theatre where we were about to watch Les Mis for the first time ever on the West End. I have only seen the film once, and I know many many hard core Les Mis fans, and knowing that it is the longest running musical I already knew that I was in for a great night. It was incredible, I love all the songs and I've never heard anyone sing so so well (and I've seen a fair few musicals), and I am already itching to see it again!
I know a lot of people aren't a fan of London due to its hustle and bustle, but I love it. What do you think and do you have any musical recommendations?
