London Baby!

I’m back from my trip to London, tired but very pleased with the trip. We left on Thursday evening and arrived in London and to the hotel at around 10.30-11.00 at night. This is late enough for me, but if you take in to consideration that this is local time and that England is one hour behind Norway in time zones, it was quite late. We stayed at Hotel St. Giles right by the Tottenham Court Road Underground stop.

Friday was a nice sunny day. There was a cold wind blowing so it wasn’t all that warm, but it was still nice. We walked down to Covent Garden and stopped in a few little shops on our way.

We had no rush and stopped to get coffees to enjoy outside in the sun. Then after looking around in some more shops we decided to sit down for a little lunch in the Covent Garden Marked. There we were entertained by a few singers and a string quartet.

The rest of the day we enjoyed walking around and visited a few more shops. And a few areas between the hotel and Covent Garden.

We went to a rather early dinner at a pub/restaurant called the Royal George. The burgers were lovely and they had a good selection of beer. Including a few local ones.

The evening was round off at a musical, as one often find included in a visit to London. I have visited London a few times before, but I have never been to a musical there. We had a great time at “the Commitments”. And I think it was extra fun for me knowing so many Irish people. We went back to the Royal George for a few drinks and to dance, before heading off to bed.
