Tower of London and The Woman In Black
London Travel Blog› entry 11 of 16 › view all entries
Today I decide to meet up with Matt to get tickets to a play at the half price ticket booth in Leicester Square. We decide on The Woman In Black. It's supposed to be scary and a thriller so I have my hopes up. We then head of to see the changing of the Horse Guards. Pretty fun morning.
We decide to spend the day at The Tower of London. We take a walking tour around with a Beefeater. Truly amazing and I am loving the history. There were a lot of heinous things that happened also like the murder of the two princes (which Shakespeare did a play on) as well as beheadings, torture chambers, etc. There is an old church on the premise as well as the house where the queen in the olden days lived.
My roommate and I dress up and go meet Matt to see this play. I will be nice and just say that the play wasn't anything at all what I expected and I was disappointed. This was also topped with feeling bad as this was Matt's first live theatre experience and I hope it doesn't deter him from going to see plays in the future. I knew we should have stuck with going to see The Phantom of The Opera. Oh well, too late now. We decide to hit a few pubs and stay out really late. Heather and I head back to her flat and eat some pasta before heading off to bed to conquer a fun day tomorrow.
