It was a trip to London for Nigel the Charity Pig on Wednesday, mostly for two shows — a matinee and an evening — with a quick bit of touring and some visiting with friends along the way.
At the Stratford-upon-Avon train station, early in the AM:
Settling in for the long ride, and eager to help with the work that will pass the time…
…until the view out the window becomes too distracting:
Arriving at Marylebone station in London:
On the way to the matinee, there was just time for stops at a few famous sites, including Baker Street:
And of course, the Apple store:
The matinee was Speaking in Tongues, which drew me because John Simm of Life on Mars was starring:
(I’ll share my reactions to the play soon.)
Afterward, it was off to meet up with Katy — of Katyboo fame — and her friend Andrea:
And more sightseeing, such as the Golden Jubilee Bridge:
With Andrea admiring the view from the Golden Jubilee Bridge:
Please please please can we go on?
(We didn’t go on.)
Nigel can’t wait for the show to start!
(I’ll share my reactions to La Cage soon, too.)
Then came the long walk to Victoria Coach Station to catch the last bus back to Stratford (the last train had long since left), with a few more glimpses of famous places along the way, including Big Ben:
And Westminster Abbey:
