Trip Report 10 days in London - Staying outside city - Running Trip Report

Jump to last reply

I'm going to try to post a daily report from my iPhone while we are in the UK and then a separate report while we are in Rome. I apologize if there are spelling, grammatical, or formatting issues. I'm typing this on an iPhone.

Day 1:
We landed in Heathrow on July 4th at around 10am. By the time we navigated the tram and customs, we were outside security around 11:30.

We used the ticket desk (Heathrow Express and Underground Tickets) to buy two Oyster Cards with £25 each. I also used an ATM to take out cash. I declined the lock in exchange rate as suggested by Fodorites. We then headed down the elevators to the Piccadilly Line towards London.

We are staying out in the Beckenham/Kent/Penge area and needed to get to Victoria Station. This was good, because I wanted to buy Travelcards there with the National Rail logo (for 2 for 1 tickets). We transferred to the district line at Barons Court and took that into Victoria Station. We were traveling with a large roller and two carry-on rollers. (Delsey Helium Fusion 2.0 for those of you who care).

Once in the Victoria Rail Station, we found the ticket desk and waited in the queue. For those of you using the 2 for 1, it was easy enough to have the new photocards made using passport sized photos (I used epassport photos). We bought two 7 day Travelcards starting travel on July 5.

We then navigated the departure boards and hopped a train to our flat. Very easy. After settling in, we came back into the city (a simple 17 minute train ride into Victoria Station), and headed to Kings Cross for platform 9 3/4 for the wife.

We then rode toward the West End area and walked through Leicester Square, Traffalgar Square, SOHO, Chinatown, and then ended up towards Downing Street, Westminster, and the London Eye area.

Being tired after a long day, we stopped at a pizza place for a quick dinner and then rode the tube to the train and rode home around 9. Was amazed at how busy the train and tube were at this hour.

More to come... National Gallery, Portrait Gallery, and maybe Churchill's War Rooms today.
