Our first trip to the Lego Store, Leicester Square

Today we grown ups had a grown up day in the West End. We really wanted to visit the new Lego Store in Leicester Square!

There were so many cool things to see and we can’t wait to go back and take the children. We loved this Lego tube map. There was also a fun tube carriage made from Lego which you could sit in.

There was an awesome picture of London across the staircase, again made of Lego.

We also liked Big Ben and the famous London characters made of Lego. We could have stayed there all day but there were some other things we wanted to do to.

We came away with a few purchases – 21034 London (Architecture) and┬áLego 40220 (Creator) London Double Decker Bus.

The Tiger Who Came To Tea

This morning we were invited to the press performance of The Tiger Who Came To Tea at Cadogan Hall. The children were excited by a trip to town.

Sloane Square tube station

The Tiger Who Came to Tea is on at Cadogan Hall, London from now until 4th September 2016. This is a 10 minute walk from London Victoria or 2 minutes from Sloane Square Underground station. It was a great performance with lots of catchy songs which I’m sure we’ll be singing all day.


We came across one of the BFG Dream Jars on our way down the Kings Road looking for lunch.

And Big Brother took a selfie with this famous pair of lips.

The BFG Dream Jar Trail

Today we went into the West End to attend the premier for the new Swallows and Amazons film. There were lots of things to do before the film started. The children decorated paper hats with lots of glue and glitter. There were photo opportunities like this one.

We thought the film was really good. After it had finished we went looking for the BFG Dream Jar Trail again. We found two, the first in Leicester Square.
