Top 5 Things To Bring To London

In London there is a wide range of attractions and things to do and see, including going to see a top London show, shopping in Oxford Street, or watching the Changing of the Guard at Buckingham Palace.

Here are five essential items to bring when you're on a London short break:

1. Camera:

A camera is an essential item to take on a London break, as there are so many attractions and sights you will want to snap. If you're going on a theatre break in London you might even spot Noel Sullivan around the area before a performance of Grease and take a sneaky snapshot to show your friends. You could even take a picture of Piccadilly Theatre before the show to remember your day.

2. Spare change:

Spare change can come in very handy when you're going to watch a London show. A purse full of coins can be used to buy drinks and sweets before the show and you can also treat yourself to an ice cream or a programme to get that true theatre experience. With the queues at the interval why not save the hassle of waiting for the correct change and have more time to enjoy your ice cream.

3. Map:

Maps are vital to have when you're visiting such a big city like London. If it's a map on your iPhone or a standard paper map it can still be helpful on a theatre break. Whether you're going to see Chicago at the Cambridge Theatre or Dirty Dancing at the Aldywch Theatre, you will still need a map, as you wouldn't want to miss the start of your show by being in the wrong place at the wrong time.

4. Binoculars:

If you're lucky enough to get a front seat on your London theatre break then you probably won't need these. However for the rest of the audience, especially those fairly far away from the stage, can still get the front seat experience. Bringing along a pair of binoculars to see the stars of The Lion King at the Lyceum Theatre is strongly recommended especially when all 46 performers are on stage for The Circle Of Life.

5. Oyster Card:

Travelling around London can become expensive if you're thinking of taking a taxi everywhere, but with regular buses and underground trains running as often as every three minutes you could save your money by getting an Oyster Card. You can use an Oyster Card on the London Underground, buses, trams and even some boats and National Rail services. Near every London theatre is a tube or bus station meaning you can easily take the Tube to your London show.

London is full of exciting things to do and with these five essentials you should be able to relax more on the day of your trip and not have to worry about getting lost, not being able to see the stage or having to pay a hefty taxi fare.
