Keeeeep dancing!

Are you missing the Saturday night Strictly Come Dancing? I know I am. Weekends just aren’t the same without it. Every year I tune into this show. I enjoy everything about it- the glitz and glamour, the music, the outfits and of course the dancing. Watching the celebrities transform from clumsy catastrophe to sultry salsa experts in a matter of weeks (well in some cases anyway), and cheering on the underdog. And every year, when the show finishes, I declare that this will be the year I go and watch the Strictly Come Dancing Live Tour. Well this year, I mean it. 

There is a fab line up this year. Hosted by Lisa Reilly (wasn’t she just great last year?!) the dancers on this show stopper of a tour include the winner from 2014 Abby Clancy as well as many of the other well loved dancers from this years show – Ben Cohen, Natalie Gumede and Susanna Reid. I loved Susanna, and was rooting for her to win – she was always so full of sunshine and put 100% into everything, so seeing her dance would be a joy. 
On the 8th and 9th Februaury, this tour will be hitting London’s O2 arena, and I am determined I will be watching. London is a pretty long journey from deepest darkest Devon, so I think we may well make a weekend of it and stay the night – the London Bexley hotel looks a good option as it is so close to the venue and has some great family rooms on offer so we could make it a family trip – Gemma especially loves a bit of Strictly magic! Once the tour was over, I think we would head out for a bit of sightseeing too – the Royal Observatory and the Maritime Museum are close to the hotel too, and I know Jacob (and Daddy) would enjoy those.
We have never taken the children to London, and I think it is about time we did. The Strictly tour gives us a great excuse to get something in the diary and book the train. 
What are your favourite things to see and do in London? Where would you recommend we check out?

      Oh Hamleys – must do that one! Gemma is desparate to go on the London Eye, and I know Jacob would love the science museum too.

    I haven’t watched this before. I love the sights in London, when I went down the back end of last year I did the Tourist Thing and saw the main sights, like Big Ben, Trafalgar Square and Buckingham Palace. It’s great fun!

      I think Buckingham Palace is a must-see, as is Big Ben.
