OK enough of that boring stuff...let's get to the pics. I took over 1500 pictures. Lots of architecture and the buildings because it was so different than what we see here. We arrived in London in the morning and went straight to the hotel to drop off our bags. The Premier Inn was one of the nicest hotel rooms we had on our stay. There was a bathtub...one that I will remember because we won't see one for a while. Check out the moderness of the toilet. You press a button to flush it. The room was big and spacious and the internet actually worked! The only bad thing was that it was on the outskirts of London so we had to take the "Tube" whenever we wanted to go some place.
The "Tube" is like a subway. We got off and on at Hanger Lane. You rode both underground and above ground. The intercom always mentioned to "Mind the Gap" as you exited the traincar...essentially look down because there might be a gap that you have to cross over!
Check out how steep the escalaters were. And thank goodness that 80% of the time these escalators were working because it was a thigh buster!
And of course on the walls were theatre placards. Of course I had to take a picture when I saw the Wizard of Oz!
The buildings were incredible. Just so well kept and brick.
Many in our group decided to stay here and shop. Adrian and I chose to go to the National Gallery at Trafalgar Square. I could not wait to see some Rembrandts, Monet, VanGogh, Botticelli and many more! Plus it was free - many of the museums in London are free. I would go back to London and going to all the free museums will be on my to do list!
