Welcome to old London Town!
From the squirrels that scurried around the autumn leaves at St James Park to the excess that is Harrods, it was an interesting stop in our adventures.
First impressions? Busy.
Taking the tube, whilst efficient, is awful! The lack of fresh air and fumes that have built up underground are not a great mix for an asthmatic. It must have been my least enjoyable experience of London. But the one thing I used the most.
Naively we thought that London wouldn’t be too busy in the ‘tourist spots’ given we were in off peak season. We did not quite envisage just how busy it could get and I hate to think what peak season looks like!
The highlight of our stay (for me) was definitely was seeing a show in the West End. It was our last night in London, so Phil took me out for a lobster dinner and a few drinks before seeing The Lion King at the Lyceum Theatre. It was a great night and a great way to end of trip.
Would I go back? Maybe next time, I’d explore some of the other towns in England instead.
Next stop Italy baby!
