London day 3, HARRY POTTER!!

I was looking forward to this day. As the title of my post says.. HARRY POTTER!! Yeah we went to the HP exhibition where it was all filmed! It was extremely cool! Also, i think i hyperventilated a bit when i stepped into the exhibition hall. I cldnt contain my excitement. It was way too cool & felt so surreal just being there. I can now tick this off my bucket list (:

I highly recommend attending gng for this HP exhibition & it is nothing like the one SG had a few years back. London's one is way wayyy better. Obv since it was filmed there. Okay i shall stop talking & let the pictures do the talking (: Maybe then it will convince u guys to go? Hehe (:

The HP exhibiton ended around 5pm. By the time we got back to the city it was 6pm. We had 2hours to shop in Oxford street. Oxford street is a huge place where ppl go shopping. Think Orchard, but 5 times bigger & better. Most brands i never heard of, only those famous ones like Topshop & Accessorize, i know. There's this shop called "Sports link direct", go inside!! Trust me, u won't regret it. Not interested in sports stuff? No prob. Go to the basement level, it's where all the men & women clothes are. & They are nice & cheap!!! Branded shoes sold there were all marked down which made it so much more worth buying. & The shoes were the nice kinds, not the obiang ones. Clothes for both men & women were not bad either. I bought a couple of stuff.

We then had dinner at Byron's. We ate there the night before & mum insisted we go back there one last time as we were flying off to Ireland, Cork, to meet our brother. Oh i forgot to mention, on the 3rd day he left to go back to Cork.. Where he lives & has been studying there for 5 years.

The shuttle bus goes by time slot. If im not wrong they have it on their site if u wld like to take the shuttle bus. It is much more convenient to take the bus so u need not worry about finding out the directions on how to get to the HP tour. Can't rmbr how much it cost so just check out the website i stated above the start of this post.
