Thursday was, once again, a lovely sunny day so we walked to Covent Garden. When we arrived it was very quiet, not something I’ve experienced before, but it was lovely to sit with a coffee and watch the market setting up.
As you may know from previous posts, I love Ballet so I booked us a tour of the Royal Opera house, one of my favourite places. It was the summer break for the National Ballet company but the Russian Ballet were touring and so we were limited with photograph’s. However we did get to see them rehearsing and warming up for the evening performance during our back stage tour we also saw the costume designers and tailors working hard, making a stunning layered red dress, although they wouldn’t tell us what it was for. We had a look in the royal box (which doesn’t have the best view) then went up to the ‘cheap’ seats which have a fantastic view, you get the best view of the stage and into the orchestra pit too.
From here we had a wander around the market and bought a couple of souvenirs, then went to the London film museum which had a James Bond exhibition with the vehicles and costumes from all the films. Oscar went a little crazy with the camera and we ended up with around 300 photo’s. Here’s just a few.
