GTO’s Sarah Jeffery took a trip to London last month to spend a few days in the capital.

Her wanderings took her to the SEA LIFE London Aquarium where she saw the new Penguins: Ice Adventure display and the Tower of London, where she enjoyed a wonderful lunch in the New Armouries Cafe. A chance to watch a penguin feed at the new Penguin Beach Live Show at ZSL London Zoo was also on the agenda as was a trip to Madame Tussauds to see the new waxwork of British heptathlete Jessica Ennis and have a picture taken with the Queen and Prince Philip! All this was rounded off with a visit to the theatre to see the incredible production of The Wizard of Oz; the original revolving stage at the London Palladium has been especially recreated for the show and Sarah was able to meet Michael Crawford, who plays the Wizard, and Danielle Hope, who plays Dorothy, afterwards.
