|Billy Elliot at The Victoria Palace Theatre|
|Our Seats for Billy Elliot|
However, after the performance I was really hungry, not having eaten after our Afternoon Tea. So a group of us set out to find some grub. Come to find out that even on a Saturday night nothing is open in London after 11pm. There were a few places that were open but stopped serving food at 10pm or 11pm and were just open for drinks. We walked up and down the streets, until finally we stumbled across an Italian place that was open until 1am. Even though it was midnight I devoured a salad and half of a pizza so fast everyone was asking where the pizza had gone! This made me miss all night drive-thrus and restaurants that deliver until 2am but it also made me wonder...where do people in the UK go if they are hungry at midnight?

Once we were all strapped in we were able to see so many iconic sites, I dont know that I would be able to list them all but here are a few...we visited/drove by St. Paul's Cathedral, the Millennium Bridge (A.K.A. the "Harry Potter Bridge"), the house where Shakespeare lived, Parliament, Big Ben, and Buckingham Palace (where we were able to see part of the changing of the guard). Everything here is so steeped in British history, I am just amazing that we are able to walk around and visit so many places that were here before America even existed.
