I feel as thought I should post an addendum to the methodology I outlined in my last post. What do you do when the address google gives you for the hotel is wrong? Answer: Find Free WI-FI (in London, I recommend any of the train stations) and try to find the correct address. I mention this because after about an hour wandering down Craven Road, and Craven Hill and some other Craven street in London as I searched for the Oxford hotel, I returned to Paddington station to look up the Hotel's website only to discover that our hotel was actually on Craven Terrace. No wonder Google maps got confused.
|Westminster from the Cloisters|
|Kennsington Palace - you might hear whispers|
|Armour collection in the Tower of London|
If it sounds dizzying it is because it was. During my time in London, I visited Four train stations and countless underground stops, rode 4 buses (but no taxis), visited 10 of the major tourist attractions (decided I have no interest in seeing anything except the churches again), found 1 delicious waffle shop and 2 mediocre pubs, and got a grand total of 10 hours of sleep over two nights. Needless to say, we all slept a little on the 3 hour train trip from London to Penrith (North Lakes) on Thursday morning.
