London Bound

Living only 10 minutes away from Birmingham City Center it's the done thing to spend my spare time at the cinema. What better excuse to wear comfy clothes and stuff my face with popcorn! I have to say it's getting a bit tedious but that could be something to do with the quality of films at the minute. 

My fiancees birthday is coming up so we've decided to break our habits and go to London for the day - I think we've seen enough of Birmingham for the time being. If we go via coach we can get there and back for a shockingly cheap price, why we haven't done it before is beyond me.

I've never been to a waxworks museum before so Madam Tussauds would be a treat. I'm mostly interested in going to the Music Megastars section so I can get my photo taken with all my favourite people. It's a shame there's no Eminem there though, Madam Tussauds lose points for that. 

I have always wanted to go to the opera so this trip to London gives me every excuse. I've looked at the listings around the time that we want to go and the showing that stood out the most was Madam Butterfly which is showing at the London Coliseum. It tells the story of a young Japanese girl who falls in love with an American naval officer. The Sunday Telegraph named this as 'the most beautiful show of the year in operatic London'. 
With traditional Japanese theater, bright and colouful costumes and the apparent 'unforgettable use of puppetry' I am intrigued to see what it's all about. I've watched some reviews and I have a feeling that it will be very emotional; I best remember my tissues! 

The one thing that just HAS to be done when in London is the London Eye! Have you seen the size of it? I can only imagine the amount of photo opportunities there will be. These are all my ideas but as it's my fiancees birthday I may have to let him decide on a few places of interest too. 

Do you have any suggestions of where to visit in London?

Book your tickets in advance is one of the biggest pieces of advice I can give to you hun, the queues are often horrific for the Eye.

I've never been to London but would love to visit for the same reasons as you. Getting to go on the On Eye looks fab. We do have our own Leeds Eye up here but it's small considering the size of the London one x
