Instagrammers Anonymous: Olympic Fun in London

In case the last couple of posts didn’t make it obvious I’m currently in London for the Olympic Games. I was at the tennis on Tuesday, but it’s not all been sport, sport, sport – oh no – there have been lots of non-Olympic fun.

There was an extra Instagrammers Anonymous for the first half of the week, but here is the more traditional Friday edition with the second half of the action.

We were at the tennis on Tuesday, and this was the last match we saw – the Bryan Bothers of the USA beat off Russia in a fairly tight match.

A trip to London wouldn’t be complete for me without a trip to the Natural History Museum in South Kensington. Being a biology grad, I feel it’s acceptable to have a little bit of a geek out once in a while.

If that wasn’t enough of an animal-themed day we went to the spectacular Lion King, down at the Lyceum Theatre.

Then yesterday we went over to the Barbican to see one of the best exhibitions I’ve ever seen – Designing 007: Fifty Years of Bond Style. Set sketches, dresses, Oddjob’s hat, Jaws’ teeth and gadgets galore – if you get a chance I recommend you go to it.

The fun is not over yet, but this weekend I guess I have to go home and get back into the swing of life in Edinburgh. Oh, and it’s festival season! Look out Fringe, here I come!

  1. The Natural History Museum is wonderful. I haven’t been in 15 years, but then I haven’t been south of the border in 5 years, so maybe that’s no surprise. I did buy one of their Antarctic Expedition fleeces via the internet though, so they’ve had some of my cash, which is good.

    I think it’s a great idea to make a wee holiday of it if you go to London. My main memory of the place is of not having time to do half of what I wanted to. It may be polluted as all hell, but it is pretty amazing.

    • I can’t go to London without visiting the NHM, I love it. Love it, love it, love it.

      I’d get a bit run down with the bonkers speed which London life seems to happen at if I didn’t make it into a bit of a holiday. And let’s face it, a week pretending to be a tourist in London is much more fun than being stuck in the office when it’s warm and sunny outside! Roll on all the fun of the Fringe and festival season.
