Benedict Cumberbatch in Hamlet

Jump to last reply

Heading to London soon for a long weekend to see this play and visit old friends and wander.

I see that Hamlet has already had a kerfuffle in that his "to be or not to be" was moved to the very beginning, briefly. I can't wait. I will readily admit that the main draw for me is Benedict, even though I enjoy Hamlet and have seen it many times. (trivia no one cares about but me - my dearly departed kitty was named Ophelia.)

First priority is the play, but for certain the first thing I am going to do once I land on the Saturday is get a grilled cheese sandwich in Borough Market, especially as BM is closed on Sunday. It's becoming a tradition, this will be the third time I've made a beeline to BM after landing to get this for lunch.

Currently looking up new exhibits or things to do. I am probably going to go horseback riding in Hyde Park. I may do yet another walking tour with London Walks. You cannot run out of things to do in London, the challenge is narrowing it down especially when you only have 72 hours on the ground.

Last visit was in February which was another weekend visit before heading to Paris on the Eurostar.
That visit I stayed in the Grange Hotel near the British Museum, this time I will be staying at the Waldorf.
