It was soooooooooo hot getting off the plane, gone are the days where you'd have to at least have a jacket with you (in case it gets cold), an umbrella in case it rains, an oyster in the pocket for the tube & buses, the many long walks getting from one place to another and the ice cold Hoegarden from the tap.....and the fish & chips where the fish is cod!!
This was officially our last pints in London!! Minutes before we had to rush off to board the plane.
On travelling to London. Next time you decide to make a trip to London, please make sure to take into account where your plane will land.
Heathrow would be the best bet, you can take a tube to downtown London in under an hour and a half and that would cost less than £2 if you do not wish to fork out £20 for a Heathrow Express which gets you downtown in 30 minutes.
Stansted is where the budget airlines land, but Standsted is DAMN far, the coach ride took one hour and 45 minutes but you get to see the green British countryside. Coach costs at least £10 to get you downtown London.
Gatwick is also far, would take about the same time to get to London, and coaches would also cost £10.
Both Stansted & Gatwick has express trains but that would set you back £20 each way....so that's waaaaaaay ex!!
So the best, even if it costs a bit more to fly into is Heathrow airport, got tube, and tube is the cheapest eventough it's not the fastest way to get into London.
A VERY BIG THANK YOU TO MARTIN & MICHELLE for letting us stay in hotel class accommodation and feeding us beer and banoffee pie and Chinese food and Sunday roasts and ice cream and Korean food (i miss it already!!) and yummy four seasons duck and more beer and salt beef baigels and smoked salmon baigels and super spicy tom yam and much much more that if i wrote it down, it would be a damn long post!!
And going out to Cotswold for the bank holiday weekend, where we were able to do this.....
