I have only ever been to London twice in my life, once when I was about 7 which I barely remember and once back in 2012 with school which consisted of 3 west end shows, singing lessons, dancing lessons, BBC studios tour and shopping time all crammed into 3 days. So it was nice to head down to London yesterday with my family for a more relaxing day out (I say relaxing but the underground was far from that). 

The 2 hour train journey went much faster than expected  and we were in Kings Cross for lunch time.

I'd never been on the London underground before and I had absolutely no idea what to expect. First impression: mental. The escalators are some of the longest, steepest escalators ever and they have a system where you stand to the right so anyone in a rush can run down the left hand side, clever but very odd. Getting on the tube itself is manic, it makes no difference whether you've been there first waiting for the next one or if you're running down those escalators last minute, you've got to fight for your place on that tube and even if you do get on you're squished up to some glass trying your hardest to grab on to a bar so you don't topple over when it sets off. Oh and you also get probably less than a minute to let people off before  pushing your way on, it's crazy. I have no idea how people can put up with the underground everyday.

I love the cool quirky signs that restaurants around London has & these cakes looked so amazing I couldn't resist taking a photo of them.

We headed over to China Town for a bit & sorry for more cake photos but just look how cool they are!

We had a quick coffee break to kill some time before heading to Piccadilly Theatre to see Jersey Boys which was absolutely insane, I'd definitely go see it again!!

We spent a little time in Piccadilly Circus before taking the underground back to Kings Cross where we had a meal while waiting for our train home. It was such a good day out, I love London so much, we're definitely planning to go back in Summer to visit Camden Market and Baker Street.
