We have just returned from a brilliant few days in London! We went to the capital for a few days this time last year and enjoyed it so much that we thought we'd go again! Apart from a mix up with hotels (very complicated) we had a fantastic time.

We visited: Buckingham Palace, Tragalgar Square (saw the London Games Festival, which was partly presented by Reggie from the Radio 1 Chart Show), Leicester Square (saw Halle Berry), the London Eye (saw Martin Clunes in the queue!), had an excellent cruise on the River Thames, the Tower of London, Tower Bridge, Houses of Parliament, Oxford Street, Museum of Natural History and the Science Museum and much more. I loved the cruise on the River Thames as there was a tour guide who explained so many interesting facts about the buildings and the river. I couldn't convince Lisa to go to the Star Wars Exhibition at the County Hall.

We did so much walking and travelling on the Underground - but I loved it all.

Highlight of the stay was going to see the musical 'Wicked'. Billed as the 'untold story of the witches of Oz' I had absolutely no idea what to expect. But believe me it is brilliant! The music is great and the acting fantastic! It cast a new light on the events of the Wizard of Oz, which, by coincidence is the show our Year 4, 5 and 6 are planning to perform for Christmas this year!

I can't wait til our next visit to London!
