Last Friday I finally got to enjoy my 21st birthday present from my boyfriend, which was tickets to see War Horse at the New London Theatre, in London (obvs)!
We arrived midday so we could make a day of it and have a look around the city. I wanted to go somewhere I hadn’t been before, there’s so many areas I want to see in London, but for this trip I chose to go and explore the Notting Hill area and I’m glad we did! I wanted to see all the pretty coloured houses and wander down Portobello Road. It was pretty cool there, so many unique and quirky shops and market stalls, plenty to cater to each of our interests; record stalls for him, clothing and accessories for me! I didn’t pick anything up but I definitely plan to if we go back there, there were some really good value pieces. My perception that London always had to be expensive was very wrong!
Late afternoon we headed to Covent Garden, one of my favourite areas of London, in preparation for the show. War Horse in the evening was amazing, the staging and design was so clever and I loved it. The film makes me sob and I shed a few tears at the show as well (I manage to hold it together more in public). Now I haven’t seen masses of theatre productions, but I would recommend particularly if you like the book or film, or if you just want to appreciate a clever and creative spectacle!
