Let’s face it, train travel is bloody expensive! It’s a constant drain on me and I travel quite a bit. However, I never really think about travelling by coach, so when megabus reached out to see if I wanted to take part in a blogger city swap, I thought it might be time to put them to the test.
Our tour guide was the very enthusiastic Stef Black. She was really friendly, animated and really knew her stuff – basically the perfect tour guide! I challenge anyone to try and outdo her on Harry Potter knowledge! As I work for Bloomsbury (the publisher of Harry Potter) I did find her knowledge of members of staff here (people I work with no less!) pretty spot on! My favourite places on the tour were the real life inspirations for Knockturn Alley and Diagon Alley, both of which are beautifully unique streets in the city.
Check back next week to find out what Hayley had in store for me in Birmingham! Thank you again to megabus for making this possible. What is your favourite thing to do with friends in London?
