We grabbed a French pastry at Paul's across the street for breakfast and then headed to the Victoria & Albert Museum to be in line when they opened. It was just one block up the street from our hotel.
This is an exact replica of Michaelangelo's David in Italy. WOAH. I had no idea he was this big. MASSIVE.
This was our last full day in London. And our grand finale -- the Harry Potter play! Here I am getting dressed for the day. The play didn't start until 2:00 PM but I had to wear my Hogwarts shirt, of course.
The toy shop was my favorite. They had SO many cool things in there, and a TON of Harry Potter gear. But once again it was so overwhelming that all I did was buy chocolate, ha ha.
The do the play in two parts because it's so long. You can either buy tickets for parts 1 and 2 and consecutive days, or you can buy tickets for parts 1 and 2 both in the same day, which is what we did. And I'm so glad we did! I couldn't have waited 24 hours in between parts 1 and 2. Way too much suspense!
In between parts 1 and 2 we took some pictures outside, then walked around and grabbed some dinner.
The stage at intermission of part 2. (The staircases were some of my favorite scenes! The way they moved them around while people were walking on them, it was just like JK Rowling describes in the book. Magical!)
After the play ended, we hopped the tube and went home to crash, because it was close to 10:00 PM already.

We woke up and took our time packing up our things to head to the airport. We took the last of the pounds we had left and bought some pastries at Paul's before hopping on the tube to the airport. Here is our last selfie in Heathrow.
