Yesterday was my sons 14th birthday, so we headed into London for a day out. Any parent will know how much fun (!) it can be going for a day out with kids….especially teenage kids. But, I have to say, despite a few huffs puffs and eye rolls the day was good. We visited The British Museum, Trafalgar Square, Covent Garden, Leicester Square, M&M’s World, St James Park and the grand finale….we took a ride on The Ghost Bus.
Wow! Such fun! So much so I just had to write a little waffle on how much we enjoyed it.
The bus is a black double-decker which has been vamped up inside to have velvet curtains, padded faux leather trimmings, and some seats with a little table and desk light. So cute! The bus takes you around famous parts of London, with your conductor telling you stories of gruesome murders, ghosts and haunted buildings, and tales of Londons rich and bloody history all in a dramatic and theatrical way. It was short, dark and highly entertaining!
I don’t want to tell everything you see on the tour as it would ruin the fun for those of you who are toying with the idea of going. But we heard about The Cock Lane Ghost, Greyfriars Christ Church, The Cross Bones Graveyard and the Charing Cross Trunk urder. Not to mention famous Kings and Queens and some of their gruesome ways.
So overall I highly recommend doing this! Great way to kill an hour and half in the early evening in London. Check out their website here 🙂
In amongst all the daily chores and the tweaking and fiddling about with my website (which I’m currently re-building) I had a sudden urge to sit down and create. So I did just that. These probably won’t be on the website for a day or two as I am back at work and busy busy busy but I thought I would share with you my new beauties.
