The London Dungeons

I have no photos as cameras were not allowed and I refuse to be ripped off by buying the photos they take! Here’s a tip to save on the ticket price (which, for 4 people is £97 on the door and £77 online); you can get buy one get one free by travelling by train and filling in the form you can get from the info booth or ticket booth; or by cutting out any of the Merlin attraction tokens that Tescos are doing on things like orange juice and cereal. However we paid for ours in full using Tesco vouchers, so we didn’t have to pay a thing. Brilliant!

A good job too because the full price is ridiculous and not worth that much money – much like most British tourist attractions. Another tip – don’t be fooled by the people dressed up in gory medieval costumes standing by the train station – they are not promoting London Dungeons, they are promoting the London Bridge Experience just across the road. Sneaky! They really don’t make that clear either.

Well anyway, I was surprisingly impressed with the London Dungeons. You went on a sort-of tour, and your group of about 15 – 20 people are walked from room to room by actors, who then introduced you to the next bit. So in one place we were told about the plague and the gruesome aspects of that; in another place it was about Jack the ripper; in another it was an old courtroom – this was my favourite as I found the adult innuendoes very funny. I also enjoyed the Victorian seance where we were spun around wearing 3d glasses and the effects were pretty good. (By the way, this is nothing to worry about if you don’t like spinny rides or get nauseous on spinning fairground rides – this was relatively slow and didn’t throw you around.)

At the end there is a new ride where you’re taken up and then suddenly dropped down. I was really nervous about this, but needn’t have been. Imagine Disney’s haunted mansion ride, but about an eighth of the height. The scary bit is the tension beforehand.

The whole thing took an hour and ten minutes, (See what I mean about value for money), but like I said earlier, I was really impressed – it was a lot better than I expected and all the actors were brilliant.

UK,

It’s fun to see the second team of fence builders have started on the opposite side of the Glastonbury Festival site this morning – it amazes me how they manage to make it meet – I suppose they must stop at an entrance gate. Anyway, I’m a bit embarrassed to confess that the tall tower in my Instagram Story yesterday, I think is just an electricity pylon that’s always there! It just looked different from a different angle and in the evening sunlight! The scaffolding construction though is definitely new….

Visiting Godrevy Beach, Cornwall – the story and the photographs
September 30, 2019
Continuing the braless theme of my recent fashion post; I didn’t even have time to put one on on the Saturday morning we visited Godrevy beach. As we approached the National Trust hut at the carpark entrance, I covered my chest with one arm, and hung the other out the window to flash my membership card at the volunteer. The bed at the back of the camper van was still out and it must have been obvious I hadn’t been awake long…

Finding the perfect carry-on luggage. 6 Things to look out for!
July 22, 2018
Chris and I have been doing a fair bit of traveling lately, and both of us have been on the lookout for the perfect luggage. While your main suitcase, is of-course important, I think it’s the carry-on that needs to function at its best in order to fit your needs. This is particularly so if you’re traveling with only the cabin bag and not checking anything into the hold at all. I think I’ve found the perfect one, and I just thought I’d tell you about it…
