Trip Report London & vicinity

Jump to last reply

We've just returned from 2 weeks in London and vicinity and want to share our experiences . This forum was again helpful as we planned our trip !

# Even in 2 weeks , you just cannot 'do it all' ! Prioritize what you want to see and do before you depart . We used Rick Steves London and Eyewitness Travel London in planning our days activities . Remember the London weather and identify plans for rainy days and plans that require clear weather !

# We stayed at the Sanctuary House Hotel on Tothill Street.........location , location , location !!! We were 2 blocks from Westminister Abbey . This is an excellent hotel and the Staff is outstanding .

# For us , the Travelcard was the way to go (remember those extra passport photos) .We did no tubes but extensively used buses and the 2 for 1 deals paid for the cards ! We found taxis to be affordable when that was needed !

# Simply Airports made our arrival & departure worry-free at a small expense . There is no better to go to/fro Heathrow in our experience !

# We did a Cotswolds tour with International Friends - great tour and excellent Guide !!
The small group was an added benefit in our opinion !

# 4 restaurants to mention were : Santini , il Convivio , the Bank , and Roux at Parliment Square . There are many others but we enjoyed these !

# I would be glad to share more details with anyone interested ! We'll now focus on Paris and the Rivers of France for a next adventure !!
