London SEA LIFE


I have been privileged to visit London SEA LIFE many years ago, so we were looking forward to getting the opportunity to visit again and see the new creature zones. There are many creature zones to explore here are just some of our favourite.

 

Shark Walk: As you enter you get to walk over a glass floor where you get to see the sharks swim beneath your feet. but that's not the end of the Shark experience as you travel through the London aquarium you'll also come to across Shark Reef Encounter: Here you can get up close and personal with the stunning sharks and watch them swim.


Rockpool: A great opportunity to hold creatures from the deep. I loved exploring the Rockpool which gives you a chance to hold starfish or shark eggs. I was fascinated at the size and shape of the Shark Egg.

Ocean Tunnel: I love the ocean tunnel its amazing to experience life underneath the ocean, as you watch the see fish swim over your head, such a surreal beautiful experience.


Coral Kingdom: My favourite zone by far, the colours are amazing, it was delightful to be surrounded by the largest living Coral reef in the middle of London, the clownfish were stunning. Such a beautiful zone.

Ocean Invaders: Ocean Invaders allows you to enter into the world of the UK's largest jellyfish experience. It's amazing to watch these delicate creatures swim in harmony and with a variety of species to see and learn about, the experience is memorable.



Penguin Present Pursuit: This Christmas, young explorers can help Ziggy the penguin prepare for Christmas, help him find all the presents he has dropped around SEA LIFE London. All festivities are included in your entry ticket.


These are just some of the zones you will get to explore, there's also the Seahorse KingdomRainforest Adventure and Penguin Point. We had the most amazing day at SEA LIFE London, defiantly an experience that I will treasure for a long time to come. The perfect family day out. For more information and how to book check out www.visitsealife.com/london.

Spies In Disguise


We were so excited to head to the Southbank In London to watch the much anticipated animated movie Spies In Disguise.

Movie Synopsis 
Spies In Disguise follows a young scientist Walter Beckett (Tom Holland) who dreams of transforming the world with his glitter friendly gadgets. Walter takes the opportunity to showcase his skills when he provides some of these super gadgets to Super Spy Lance Sterling (Will Smith), But when Lance Sterling is on a mission he is less than impressed when his trusted gadget explodes with a sprinkle of glitter.


But things take an unexpected turn and Super spy Lance Sterling soon finds that he needs Walter to help him on a mission to clear his name and save the world. Walter has the perfect disguise to help Lance disappear which will help Lance clear his name once and for all, but before lance could fully comprehend the disguise he turns into a Pigeon.


Our Thoughts On the Movie
The movie was outstanding, it had hilariously funny moments throughout the movie. It was great to see two unlikely characters joining forces to work as a team. Spies In Disguise is a must-see movie that everyone will love. If you like spy movies and humour then this animation is defiantly for you. One for kids and adults alike. We give this movie a 10/10, its one you will want to own and watch over and over.

Favourite Movie Scene
This was a hard one as there were so many great ones to choose from, but it had to be when Lance Sterling is turned into a pigeon and say's "Look at you!! "I can see my butt and your face at the same time, and what happens in the submarine stays in the submarine. Watch the trailer for a sneak peek.

Spies In Disguise is out across Uk Cinemas On Boxing Day, so make sure you take the family to watch this awesome movie you'll love it.

Dick Whittington And His Cat





We were super excited to head to Hackney Empire for another year exciting Christmas Panto. The story follows a young Dick Whittington who boards the Empire Windrush looking to start a new life in London.


But a magical adventure awaits, as Dick soon finds himself and his loyal cat on an adventure of a lifetime, from meeting a friendly fairy to fighting with queen rat and her rodents, and of course finding his true love.


Dick Whittington And His Cat is a hilarious fun-filled production, filled with funny jokes and laugh out loud one-liners, some which referenced currents events in the UK which were great and very well received by the audience.The songs choices were outstanding as were the dances which were delivered perfectly. I loved that the actors were enjoying performing as much as we were enjoying watching them.


Dick Whittington had everything you could wish for in a panto which made you want to join in with the audience participation songs and dances. This stunning performance features a dame like no other Clive Rowe as he stars in this stunning production as Sarah the Cook alongside the other talented actors the show was one I will not forget in a hurry.


Dick Whittington And His Cat is a classic rags-to-riches tale that the whole family will love. Check out Hackney Empire to buy your tickets. Dick Whittington And His Cat is on now until the 5th January 2020.



Christmas At The London Transport Museum


We had the most amazing weekend exploring the galleries of The London Transport Museum including their new Hidden London exhibition and the new cafe bar which recently opened.


Hidden London Exhibition:
We had the chance to explore the new immersive exhibition which holds many fascinating secrets of London's disused Underground stations. From the Secret bomb-proof Headquarters to life underground during the war.



Cafe Bar:
After a fun morning exploring the museum, we couldn't wait to sit back and relax in the new Cafe Bar. The cafe has all you could possibly want to eat and drink from sweet treats to main meals and breakfast, there is defiantly something to suit everyone's taste.


We opted for a delicious vegan breakfast which was delicious. It was great to sit and be around real pieces of salvaged furniture, the perfect place to grab a bite to eat after an exciting morning.


Christmas At The Museum:
But best of all the Transport Museum has a host of festive activities including storytime and singalong sessions, as well as fun creative activities. Plus we had the chance to meet Santa in his secret cabin.


What made my day was getting my hands on these stylish Christmas Transport scarf from the London Transport Christmas gift range
