Ryan had mentioned that he wanted to see Titus Andronicus at The Globe. I looked and there happened to be a matinee performance the Friday before his birthday. A call to a friend to arrange an after school pickup for Katy later, and we had tickets!
We wandered into town a few hours early to have lunch. We found a lovely place right on the Thames looking towards St. Paul's Cathedral.
Lunch was lovely and even left us a few minutes to wander through the Tate Modern and along the riverbank.
The Globe is an incredible venue. It was beautiful and we were excited to see the show.
The show, unfortunately, was just horrible in our opinions (although, it's been well reviewed). At Ryan's urging we left at intermission and didn't go back.
Instead? How about a drink at the base of St. Paul's?
