First I walked to Covent Garden, where I was a little disappointed.
Most of the nice artisan shops had gone, there was hardly anything apart from national chains and places to eat.
I did find this lovely macaroon shop though (didn't buy any as I wasn't sure they'd survive the day) so I decided to walk to Trafalgar Square to St Martins in the Fields.
My parents got married here and I didn't think I'd ever been in. The ceiling is stunning. Needing a rest and some refuelling I had lunch in the crypt.
Great food, lovely setting and various 'odd' tombs/memorials in the gallery - I loved this one of the first Pearly King.
Then I walked to here, the reason for my being in London.
I bought the ticket last November as a birthday present to myself and it was worth every penny. A mix of hand sprung puppets, a very simple set, english folk music and hand drawn animations - amazing.
After the theatre, more walking. Through Piccadilly Circus, to Regent Street - and beyond!
