Day in the Big Smoke

We loved our day out in London on New Years Eve. The whole idea was to have a jam-packed day which was both fun and exhausting so that we'd return home feeling like we've done stuff - unlike all the previous new years since having children when we've felt like saddos when I've sulked off to bed way before midnight and the first words of the new year have been, "f%*cking fireworks!"

The plan worked. We had an utterly stress-free journey on the super-speedy East Coast service from Newark to King Cross. We made our way to the Lyric Theatre where we watched The Gruffalo and then did our usual trip to the South Bank. Mission accomplished!


We travelled by train with East Coast from Newark North Gate to London: Standard Advance returns, booked online at, start from £19. Times and fares also on 08457 225225 or from staffed stations and agencies.
