... route).For those of you out there who are die hard market lovers like me then you MUST at some point in your life visit the Camden Markets. They were by far the biggest and best markets I have ever been to. The stalls just kept on going and I was there for a good hour and a half but could have easily spent a whole day there it was fantastic and so lively and colourful :)
It was a long walk from the markets through Regent's Park down to Oxford St and of course once on ...
... Westminster Abbey though - we've been taking the bus a lot (as well as the tube). You can see a lot more on the bus.
The Tower of London was much more interesting than I had thought it would be. Again, we had a very entertaining tour led by a Beefeater (Yeoman Warders), the ceremonial guardians of the Tower of London. He had quite a few bloody stories of the Tower of London. See the Garderloo ...
... happy with that. We got a photo with Shane, Tony Bull ( their other coach) and the boys. Well done to all the Australians. The kids then went around swapping their jumpers with other teams. Nate got a Great Britain jumper and Liam got an Argentinian coach's jumper and a Hungarian jumper. Great mementos of a World's Regatta. By 7:30, we were nearly there with packing up the boats and gear, so one mum went and got pizzas to bring back to the container. We all gathered around ...
... Many drinks were had, many photos were taken, and possibly many a dignity was lost (if any were left after 48 days!) that night!Tour day 49:Last day! How did this happen?! After saying goodbye to a few people we were leaving behind in Amsterdam, we jumped back on the bus for the final time for our drive to Calais. We heard our trip song, that was played every morning on the bus for the last time, as we gunned it down the freeway on the way to Bruges in Belgium. We had time for a few ...
... and investigate. Not what one would expect to see. - St Brides is where the tradition of having a church with steeple on tiered wedding cakes was started. This was by a local baker, who used St Brides as a model. I would have loved to provide a picture of that steeple, but it is currently under scaffolding and is not a good look. - the story of St Bride herself is too long to tell here, but adds another interesting layer to the church. As it was our last night I felt like a bit ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Devonport House London
We stayed at Devonport House for 3 nights in mid-February 2005. Weekend rates were excellent value and though the hotel itself was not exactly exciting, our room was bright, clean, and spacious with an unusually comfortable bed - all very nice after tramping round exhibitions all day. Set just a bit off the main drag, it has the advantage of being unusually quiet for London while being really well located for the local sights, a range of eating opportunities and transport into Docklands or central London.
We have just returned from a weekend break staying at Devonport House. The location in Greenwich is perfect with easy access on public transport into London for sightseeing. The hotel was very comfortable and the food was excellent. We could not find any faults at all with the standard of accomodation and friendliness of the staff. We will definitely be returning to this hotel for our next visit to London.
Really enjoyed my relaxing stay here once I found the place ( or rather once I found the entrance, which is not that easy under cover of darkness!).
Everthing was top class- breakfast, rooms, staff.
Great weekend value and I hope to return.
Although primarily used as a conference centre, my boyfriend and I spent the weekend at Devonport House to fully explore Greenwich and found it to be a clean, friendly and very pleasant hotel. The rooms are comfortable, well-equiped and decorated to a high standard, much nicer than the usual 'chain hotel' garish carpet and curtain prints! Location-wise, Devonport House cannot be beaten... very close to everything you would want to visit (Greenwich park, Cutty Sark, Maritime museum, observatory, market, shops, restaurants etc.) but noise isn't a concern as when we returned to the hotel late on Saturday night we didn't hear a peep out of the local revellers! (Of which we were two...) My only tip would be to ask for a fan in the room on a hot day as the windows didn't open more than a crack.
.......there might be a problem.
Loved the devonport
excellent hotel. stayed here august, 2003
only one problem no air conditioning.
Great weekend rates!
We have visited the Devonport House a number of times and found it fantastic value for money at weekends. We have always found the rooms clean, spacious and bright, with good facilities. The staff have been polite and friendly and the breakfast perfectly adequate. It has provided a great base for exploring Greenwich but we have also used it for central London as well. Highly recommended!
Absolutely average for a conference centre
If you want to stay in a conference centre with canteen style breakfast and offhand staff but pay the price of a 4 star hotel (which is what it claims to be on the website), then Devonport House is for you.
Overpriced for the standard of room and service, although the location is good, central in Greenwich and a stone's throw from the park.
This gets my vote for best new hotel in 2003! The Devonport opened in January 2003 as a conference center located in the old Naval College in Greenwich. However, it also offers B&B in high quality rooms for as low as £59 per room per night! It's location in Greenwich can't be beat: about three blocks from the light rail (10 minutes to Canary Wharf and 20 to the City) and only a stone's throw (literally) from the Maratime Museum. Greenwich is a tourist magnet by itself and it is very convenient by rail to London Bridge Station( 15 minutes). So I can't recommend highly enough this location (and hotel) as an alternative base for London. Just to round things out I have some downsides: No airconditioning in the otherwise all-mod-cons room can be a disadantage in the summer and the check out is posted as 9am (though I don't think they're tight about it.)
Perfect in every way
the devonport house hotel was perfect from walking through the door,reception was clean and spacious and manned by some very nice polite staff, the rooms were absolutly spotless,with enough space to loose a small country, the breakfast menu was extensive with a wide range of food to satisfy all tastes,polite,helpful waiting staff combined to make a very pleasent atmosphere, the admirals bar was excellent with a wide range of drinks and an even wider range of whiskeys,quiet surroundings and a beer garden in which to wind down after taking in londons vast attractions,so many infact i would not have known where to start if it was not for the help of Tash,the bar maid,whose intimate knowledge of london and underground made for a grade A holiday,highly recommended hotel!!
