London, Day 2

Our first stop today was Leicester Square to get play tickets at the tkts booth.  We booked our Lion King tickets before we left the US and decided to wait until we got to London for other theatre tickets.  The Official London Theatre Ticket Booth is a good resource for discounted and no-fee-added tickets.  We got lucky and got discounted tickets for Memphis on Monday night.


We walked two blocks over from Leicester Square to the National Gallery.  One of Europe’s great galleries, the London museum houses displays of European paintings from 1250 to 1900.  Our museum guide was amazing.  She especially helped us better understand and appreciate the paintings from the 1300s.



In the afternoon we visited the Bank Museum.  As part of the London Festival, the museum had special tours and hours today.

We capped off our lovely day with a great performance of the Lion King at the Lyceum Theatre.  Dining after the play, we met a couple from Minnesota on their honeymoon.  Then it was home to our apartment before the tube quit running at midnight.
