... told me jokingly he was about to call 999 because an undesirable was lurking outside his school! And promptly told me off for waiting outside and to just go in and make myself at home! ... It was a nice feeling to be made so welcomed as it had been 12 years since I left there! .... Was lovely to catch up with all the teachers and teaching assistants that I use to work with again! As ...
... around the park before going back to the camp for a cooked breakfast. We left after breakfast. After our experiences in the park the road didn't seem as bad. We had lunch at the same place but at this point we still weren't sure how we were getting to Nakura because Simon said he was still working it out! Suddenly after lunch we had to jump into the van and there was a race between vans to get to a meeting point where passengers would swap to get ...
... of the day, visiting the Greenwich royal park which houses the Greenwich royal conservatory, home to the meridian line and the beginning of GMT. The entrance for the conservatory was only 5£ for students, 8£ for adults. The grounds were beautiful and housed a monument of Wolfe, gifted from the Canadian government, and a spectacular view of the "Queen's palace" and the greater London area. The meridian line, which marks 0' on the map of longitude, lies well marked in the courtyard ...
... a fantastic area but too far for us. So we booked an additional day with the hotel that the record label booked us into for winning the trip. We are headed there on Saturday. We will be right across from Hyde park and in the middle of everything. Tomorrow we are headed to the set and behind the scenes of Harry Potter and we also booked the broadway production of Carlie and the Chocolate Factory for Tuesday. We are squeezing as much in as we can. 6 days and we are ...
... because they were so narrow and the ceiling so low. Totally worth a bit of claustrophobia. At that height you're around an 1/8th of a mile above ground. It's just immense. (There's a second level to the dome in between the Golden and the Whispering Galleries).
After I got down and whipped the sweat from my beard, I made my way to Ye Olde Cheshire Cheese for a bit of cider to cool myself down. Well worth it. Rebuilt in 1667 while people over here were still trading ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hilton Croydon
I am a Gold Hilton Honours member. I booked 2 rooms and requested interconnecting. On arrival a very nice receptionist gave me keys to 2 rooms on the 3rd floor but not interconnecting or adjoining. I pointed out my request and she quickly found me interconnecting rooms. I was assured that payment for the rooms had NOT been charged to my credit card even though this was a pre-pay rate which seemed strange.( There was no room upgrade as this property does not have executive rooms or lounge access)
Could Be Better
I took my wife here for Valentines and all the arrangements were very well arranged and i thought we were in for the biggest treat of our lives - i mean this is the Hilton right!!!
Actually this Hilton aint all that. The corridors were really worn and bit dirty showing signs of ageing. The room wasnt bad but once again i expected better. Food wasnt bad again thus all in all Hilton Croydon was a bit of a dissapointment for me....
Stayed here on business for around three weeks so got to experience most of the good & bad points of the hotel.
Good value if not perfect
For London, ok Croydon,the price was good. Large and comfortable bedroom if a little 'worn'. Woken up by noise from people below awaiting transport after a function and clearly considerably the worse for drink. Staff were a little icy but all in all well worth the money. Location is ok. Waddon station for trains to London about a 10 minute walk, also local buses to centre of Croydon. Ignore the Americans who think you have to go to central London first before taking the train to Gatwick. There's a good rail service from East Croydon directly to the airport.
Where is Croydon?
We are just about to end our stay here. The beds a really big and the linens are nice. The staff are friendly. BUT this Hotel is not convienient to Heathrow or Gatwick airports. Be prepared for an hour and a half bus ride from Heathrow or a £80 taxi ride! If going to Gatwick you must take a bus(or £8 courtesy shuttle?) to the train station, now take a train to Victoria Station then get the Gatwick express to the airport!! A taxi to Gatwick would be £30. We knew we chose a poor location when the people at the information desk at the airport had no idea how to get there and had to get out three maps and asks friends how to get there. But if you are driving this is a good 3 star hotel.
Must of got a room upgrade as the bed was huge, there where no problems even with several Christmas functions on. All said a done no complaints unless you mention five pounds a glass of wine (for a small glass!), get the bottle or bring your own!
Not great!!! - stay in the Jury's Inn for value for money
I stayed here whilst on a business trip. Considering this is a Hilton hotel, the rooms are very basic, the bathroom is shabby and dated and the so called mini bar was empty!!!
I would advise you to stay in the Jury's In for value for money and a closer location to the train station.
Although the hotel was clean and had a nice lounge area in the lobby, there were some problems I experienced while in this hotel.
This hotel was very clean and the staff was extremely helpful. It was a great location from which to explore London. The room rate we received included a buffet breakfast and buffet dinner!
Loved the full weekend
efficent from the word go,didn't matter if you were there with a group of 100 or were on your own. Nothing was to much trouble. I left a customer feed back form and was contacted by the manager with in 2 day's of getting home. I have stayed at this hilton 4 time's now and wouldn't use any other
They have recently had an upgrade on there resturant area and it has to be said it's great.
The only down side has to be there's not enough staff on duty especially when they are covering the bar and cafe also
Well worth the money and of course london is just down the road in one direction and gatwick the other
