Soho is a vibrant lively area to visit day or night with lots of bars, restaurants, shops and interesting people. I have eaten in several restaurants and they have all been lovely. Look out for the bakers too with the beautiful moorish cakes on display in the window.
Camden is a little gem. My favourite part is Camden lock and if you haven't already been its somewhere you need to discover. its very diverse, colourful and wonderful. Every time I go I notice something I haven't noticed before. Every shop and every person who passes you is quirky and unique. I feel its a place you can't describe and you have to experience it for yourself.
I have been lucky enough to go up the Shard twice in its first year and it really is worth a visit. I went with my mum and her friends who use to live in London so it was like having my own tour guides, very exciting ones reminiscing. Try to pick a clear sunny day and you can see for miles. They don't seem to mind how long you stay up there either and photographers often sit on the floor with their cameras taking long exposure photos. there's interactive stations that you point at landmark and they provide you with all the relevant information. the Shard has two levels, one completely indoor and one with an open roof, I prefer the top level because you can feel the fresh air. Be prepared for the lift too, its super fast!! The cost for the shard varies but the average is about £24.95 and you are given a time slot. I would still love to go in the evening and have dinner in one of the restaurants as the sun is setting and watch it get dark and see London light up the sky.

The Royal Opera House-
Last year I went to see the Bolshoi ballet perform Swan Lake. It was a special occasion so we hired a private box it was such a wonderful experience, one I will never forget. I hope to go again to see more ballets and operas. We started with a very expensive bottle of champagne that my mums friend brought and still hasn't got over the shock of the price, it was fabulous! The champagne was kept on ice for us and brought out again at the interval along with sandwiches. Arriving in our private box felt very special (lots of room for shopping bags at the back and hooks for your coats). The Royal Opera house is a magnificent building the architecture and detail is stunning. We were the third box back and had a good non obstructed view. Having never seen a ballet before I didn't know how I would feel, I was mesmerised I felt very emotional I still keep listening to the music now and it takes me straight back there. The opera seemed very popular and the queue of people for returned tickets was huge. It was an amazing night, a wonderful performance in magnificent surroundings. The Opera House is set in Covent garden so try to arrive early and have a wonder around first there's some great little boutiques and coffee shops or you could just watch the street entertainers.
