... at platform 9 3/4. On the way back we stopped at The Rocket for apps and a drink. I got an awesome pear cider which made us decide to stop at a cool place called the Cider Tap. It was tiny but it had 16 different ciders on tap! Dinner was similar to lunch and after that we decided to go out to celebrate our first (and basically only) night in London. ...
... made Queen with at the coronation he only got to wear for the actual moment that they made her queen. After that moment was over, they took it off and placed a different crown on her head. This second crown was worn to complete the coronation ceremony. The only other time she wears this crown is once a year at the State Opening of Parliament.
... our leftover cooking ingredients to make another home cooked dinner. Tuesday 15 April Started off today with a coffee from a shop on Portobello Rd, before catching the tube to Tottenham Rd to meet Ash's cousin, Jess, who has been living and teaching in London for over two years. With Jess we went to the Camden Markets where we had a look at all the stalls and shops. Afterwards we had a walk along the River Thames from South Bank to Tower Bridge, making ...
... Boleyn and Catherine Howard, took place--and into the Beauchamp Tower, where there is extensive graffiti from the various prisoners housed there over the ages. It's all protected by plexi-glass to prevent decay, but I spent a good ten minutes or so photographing each example (much to Aidan's chagrin.) Some of the examples are simply superb and must have taken months to carve.
Finally, it was out onto the Tower Green again, and it was here, ...
... and it didn't disappoint this time. I was thrilled to discover an exhibit commemorating Passion man - the guy that used to walk around Oxford Circus extolling the virtues of "less nuts, less sitting and less passion". I'd booked us in to see a West End comedy play - the 39 Steps. It was very funny, very physical and well worth the money.
And the icing on the cake - on the way home in the dark - we saw a fox. Em's day was ...

Historical Traveler Reviews The Connaught London
My wife and I stayed in a fourth floor suite (203-205) for three nights in December. The suite, Living room, Hall, Bedroom, Bathroom were clean, neat, extremely well furnished and very comfortable. Murano glass chandeliers in both the Living room and Bedroom. I've always thought the term "MiniBar" was very descriptive of most hotels inroom bars. The Connaught takes it to a new high. A large oriental cabinet with 1/2 pint bottles of spirits, wine, and a selection of four different types and sizes of glasses. Ice bucket always full...nothing Mini here.
Great hotel in Mayfair
Just returned from a 4 night stay at the Connaught. Absolutely superb experience. We had a suite (117/18) that was fabulous and super luxurious, staff was very friendly, and the quiet location in Mayfair nice. It is an easy walk to shopping on New Bond and Oxford, St. James, and Hyde Park. Concierge was great in getting restaurant reservations. Highly recommended!
Really great, quiet hotel:
We spent a couple of nights recentley at the Connaught. The area is fantastic, very pretty. Our room was beautifully decorated and quite large. Bigger than I expected. My only complaint was that the concierge were not very helpful and really didn't seem interested in doing much of anything but talk to each other. Other than that, it was great value for what we paid!
Winter in London
Spent a week at the Connaught in February 2003, arriving on the former BA 1. The driver from the Connaught, not a contract worker, picked us up.
Arrived with my wife and infant daughter.
Concierge very helpful. Arranged tickets and train transportation to Manchester where we saw ManU play Arsenal in the 03 FA Cup.
Nice location, cozy rooms and a very intimate feeling.
Next time I'm in London, I would like to try the Four Seasons at Hyde Park that seemed nicer.
Loved it yeah yeah yeah
Stayed here for two nights on business. I found the staff very helpful and attentive. Its certainly the best hotel I have stayed at in London so far. I found the Angela Hartnett restaurant first class allround. Maybe my judgement was swayed a little. Sat at the next table was Paul McCartney and George Martin.
We called it the 'can not'
We stayed at the Connaught several years ago and thought that the service was so lousy that we found ourselves referring to the place as the "Can Not" hotel. However it's in a lovely section of town and it's fun to walk around in.
A Refuge In London
My wife and I stayed at the Connaught last July and have already made reservations to stay there again next summer. I've stayed at a number of deluxe London hotels and really enjoyed the club-like atmosphere of the Connaught.For anyone who wants a central and quiet location, this is the place to stay. We walked to Le Gavroche and to Gordon Ramsey at Claridges from the hotel. It is also a relatively short walk to the Ritz, shopping and Berkely Square.We ate at the restaurant in the hotel and had a very nice dinner and enjoyed the American Bar. The syaff was friendly and helpful and weren't placing bets in my view as one writer noted.
I stayed four nights in a top floor suite late august 2003. The concierge was busy placing bets and could not be bothered by waiting customers. The service others talk about did not exist. Room service did not even pick up the phone. When I asked to borrow an adapter, I was advised that I could by one at Dixon's on Oxford street. The rooms were terribly dated; last remodeled in the early 60's I imagine. The bathrooms... not what you'd expect at Connaught prices. The phonesystem is shot and your line won't hang up once you finish a call. The only reason I'll set foot here again is to eat at Angela's restaurant; she knows how to cook. However, the ambiance and service one might seek by staying at the Connaught is found in spades at the Ritz, and that's where I'll go back to next time.
We just got back from a stay in London at the Connaught Hotel.
This hotel was amazing... from the moment the doorman extended me his white gloved hand to help me exit my taxi I knew I was in for an adventure. The wonderful gentlemen who were at my service couldnt do enough for me... my bags were whisked away and I was led up the architecturally stunning wooden staircase to my room. There was a small foyer with a door to the inner room and another to the marvelous marble and chrome bath. The room was decorated in soft yellows, greens and burgundy... a pale green murano glass chandelier lit the room... and the furniture was beautiful rich dark wood... the view was of the rooftop flower gardens. My butler unpacked my clothes and made sure that I took the umbrella with me as I ran out the door. When I arrived back from my afternoon of exploring I was soaked to the skin and the same doorman took my wet umbrella and led me to the red drawing room where the concierge asked me if I would like some hot tea while he had the butler draw me a hot bath! My dinner at the hotel was also incredible... even as a woman dining alone I was treated like royalty. Dinner was superlative... fois gras terrine, dover sole, champagne and a spring cup for dessert that I still dream about. John, the head waiter from Wales was one of the nicest people that I have ever met... he made this one of the nicest dinners I have ever enjoyed even though I dined alone. This hotel is magical and I would recommend it to anyone who loves a taste of the good life. The special rate for my room was relatively inexpensive compared to other hotels of similar stature and location.
