A London Trip Book Haul

Book Haul Header

Very late in 2017 i uploaded a book haul which i said would be my last book haul in a long time. And then i went to London. We had this trip planned for a long time and saw Harry Potter and The Cursed Child while we were there (which was my second watch and just as incredible as the first). But this meant that i also had some free time to go to Foyles.

Book Shopping In London

Chat Header

A few weeks ago now i took another trip to London. I absolutely love the city and being from Manchester myself, it’s not too much different. Just a whole lot bigger. I wrote a post about my time at the Warner Bros. Studio Tour (again) that you can read HERE if you want to know what else i got up to while in the capital. However, i also wanted to talk about my favourite thing to do in London. Book shop!

The Warner Bros. Studio Tour (Harry Potter)

Chat Header

Last weekend i embarked on my fourth trip to the studios, in which i once again marveled at how small Daniel Radcliffe actually is, drank Butterbeer and walked down Diagon Ally. I realised that i’ve never written a blog post about how much i love this experience and how much it amazes me every time i go, especially when taking first-timers with me who are taking everything in. Here’s a little bit about my experiences after my fourth trip.
(This post will contain spoilers and photos from the tour, do not continue if you haven’t been and don’t wish to know or see anything).

We will definitely be returning, so we hope to see some of you around next July too. If you’re still unsure whether to return or come for the first time (and time is running out now), i’ve created a list of the five reasons you should definitely go get a ticket.

My First Foyles Trip

The Bookshop Series Header

I’m going to take a post out of talking about books to talk about bookshops!

As a resident of the North, I rarely get chance to travel south down to London and look around – it’s usually a pass through, on to another train to a convention. But this last few days I’ve had chance to wander the (expensive) streets, and my first stop was Foyles at Charing Cross. I’d never been to Foyles and had heard numerous stories that made it sound like absolute words-on-a-page heaven. So as soon as I arrived in London I marched my family the whole thirty minute walk to find this wondrous store. Continue reading “My First Foyles Trip”
