Trip Report Trip summary: London, England, July 2016

Jump to last reply

Trip Summary: Friday, July 22: My flight left Detroit Metropolitan airport at 10:30 pm

Saturday, July 23: Arrive at Heathrow Airport in London. They held me in a sort of semi-high security holding cell for suspicious people for almost 4 hours because I didn't have proper printed evidence of my itinerary (a return tick or evidence of the date I was going to leave). I forgot to print and bring the information from the website I bought my tickets from, if this would have helped.

Sunday: Went on a two hour walking tour that stopped at 4 palaces. Went to the British museum. Walked past the London Eye. Saw a magician who who quit in the middle of his show because his microphone died.

Tuesday: Went to the Wallace collection. Went to the National Gallery for 2 hours before they closed. Went to the Play "Ivanov" by Anton Checkhov. Cost just under 42 US dollars, bought 4 weeks in advance. I wanted a non-musical play.

Wednesday: Went to Buckingham palace. Tickets cost about $33 US dollars. There is a path through certain rooms and an optional audio guide with headphones. Ropes and guards keep people out of the private areas. Pictures are not allowed...Walked along so called Queens walk (path along the Thames River, passed by Tower of London, Tate Britain, outdoor seating areas of restaurants/bars, London Eye, and so on.

Thursday: Went to the Tower of London (about $40 US dollars), then Tower bridge (about $14). Walked past the Prince Albert Memorial.

Friday: Went to the Royal Botanic Gardens at Kew. It was a waste of time. To be fair, there was a 50,000 square foot greenhouse and a tower modeled after east Asian architecture that were are both closed for renovations until sometime in 2917-2018. Then saw the Victoria and Albert Museum. They were open until 10pm because it was Friday. (A crowd of younger people were in the lobby and a techno DJ was playing music. But I was just there for the museum). 10-25% of the crowd was diffusing into the museum.

Saturday: Went to the Jewish museum. The place is small but you could spend two or more hours there if you read everything. Went to Portobello Road Market to see scenery and walk past small stores and gift shops. Might or might not have been a waste of time. The only souvenirs I brought back were two t-shirts for myself. British sizes seem smaller than the same American sizes.
