So, in exactly 48 Days I will be flying to London for my Birthday. AND on the day of my birthday I will be going to The Warner Bros Studios, or as I like to call it, Harry Potter Land.
Am I so excited I could burst? Yes
Have I started planning an itinerary? Naturally
Will I dress like a wizard when I go to Harry Potter Land? … do we really need to ask 🤓
Anyway, himself booked this as a surprise for me for my birthday, and yes I am still surprised he booked it without my knowledge and without my help😅 But London is a city that I have always wanted to visit, and no it’s not just because Harry Potter Land is there! The city is just so full of character and yeeaaarrrsss of history I can’t wait to see it all and take it all in.
We’re staying in The St.Giles Hotel and from reading the reviews on Tripadvisor the location is spot on and it seems to be a nice hotel with everything you could need for a city break. It’s right beside the tube station and only a short walk to the main shopping street, Oxford Street. We’re flying into Gatwick and the plan is to get the train to Victoria Station and then a taxi to the hotel. Their version of the Leapcard for public transport is the Oyster Card, and I saw on the website that you can order your visitors card in advance and get it delivered to you, so we will be doing that prior to travelling. Such a good idea though, right?
I’m looking up things to do and places to see daily and my list just keeps getting longer. The exchange rate at the moment is really good, it’s almost pound for pound at this stage, €1 = £0.86. So hopefully shopping will be amazing 🙃
I will keep you guy posted on the plans, and I will post about my travel must haves also.
After the trip I will put a post together about the whole thing along with some tips etc. so stay tuned!😇
As always, thank you for reading😗.
