... So we've arranged to see someone at the museum and find out a bit about that campaign. Infantry on camels, Martini Henry rifles, and strange rations. It was bizarre to note later in the displays, that the Taliban are still using 100 year old Martini Henry Rifles against the current Welsh, Scots and Grenadier Guards that have been serving in Afghanistan.
I really enjoyed seeing the history of the units going back to the 1600's and how they have changed. The ...
... tarts, yum! We moved on to our Beatles Magical Mystery tour and got the obligatory Abbey Road pic... dangerous, but love the pic! Back at Westminster Abbey we found a 2 hour wait... nice church, but that's not happening. Again, we'll do that next time. Since we had a few hours on our hands, the girls got their much wanted shopping in and we had a time trying to find Kaelyn in this 4 story ...
... we used to watch performances of St. Martin in the Field as they were broadcast on PBS. It was wonderful to sit and listen to a performance right there. (The acoustics were phenomenal. The organ is only 20+ years old but the church itself was founded in 1222. There have been approximately three other buildings on the site, with the current church building dating back to 1726.) Afterwards, we had tea and scones in the crypt. (Yes, you read that ...
... chance of rain, but that didn't come either. As we got closer and closer, Juls happy-holiday-face took hold...a complete smile, eyes trying to soak up every piece of architecture, history and natural beauty. Eva and Liam took a few seconds longer to really twig at what they were looking at, with the balcony being the thing that locked on the recognition (which for Liam meant, "This is where they stand and look up at the aircraft that fly past leaving their coloured ...
Breakfast at Brick House, Clapham.
Taxi to Heathrow booked for 1145 so we have an anxious wait whilst our minds race with everything we might have forgotten!
Can't quite believe we are heading off for 7 weeks, that's 50 breakfasts until we're back in our own kitchen. Note to self, try to avoid a fry up every day!
Speedy journey to LHRW saw ...

Historical Traveler Reviews DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel London - Marble Arch
Feel at home
The staff at this hotel shine. Sardia, at the front desk, is just one of the many extremely helpful and courteous personnel. The room was ample, quiet and well maintained daily. The bathroom tub and fixtures were great. The location is remarkable. For this price it is a standout!
Great hotel, I will come back for sure!!!
I've stayed 6 nights at the mostyn hotel in October 2004 with my friend, the hotel was very nice, the room was very cozy (not small).
It was so close to the oxford street (just about 1 minute of walking).
The service at the front desk was very good and also the maintenance workers (especially Ray who was very nice and friendly).
I didn't like the english breakfast so much, something was missing there and also the hall was too small for all the hotel guests.
London is the best city in the world!!!
Stayed at Mostyn for 8 nights, in September of 2004.
Book carefully at the Mostyn
We stayed at the Mostyn for two nights this month (July 2004). We felt that the room was too small for comfort as a double, but that it would be OK as a single. The room that we were assigned faced a street with substantial traffic. Rooms towards the rear of the hotel looked to be both larger and quieter. The air conditioning in our room was marginal at best.
On the positive side the room rate was very moderate for a hotel located one block from the Oxford Street shopping district, and the included breakfast was ample.
The hotel's regular restaurant is not operating, but the restaurant across the street at the Thistle Marble Arch has a very good early-bird carvery buffet for about 13 pounds.
If you book at the Mostyn try to get a room away from the street.
The best hotel for the price
we stay in london for about a week at the best western mostyn it is a nice hotel clean and the staff very helpful to give information they renoeted all the which nice and clean close to oxford street and buses we enjoy stay at this hotel
After two night in a perfectly awful hotel the Mostyn was like a dream! We had a triple room which they gave us at a highly discounted rate (we walked in off the street in search of a decent hotel) and could not have been happier. This hotel has recently been refurbished so everthing is new and clean. Our room was very large as was the bathroom which had an enormous bath and one of the best showers I've ever had in a hotel. We requested a room away from the street and were given one facing into the back of a police station. The view wasn't great but it really couldn't have been any quiter. Request a rear facing room if possible because we were told by another guest that their front facing room was quite noisy. The staff at the front desk were always very helpful and friendly. The continental breakfast was very good-top quality leg ham, cheese, cereal, yoghurt, fresh fruit, juice, tea/coffee, croissants etc. The hotel is in a great location between two tube stations on Oxford Street and on the bus route for Regents Park and London Zoo. Hyde Park and Marble Arch are literally down the road as is the hub for the open top red London Bus tours. Great for shopping, great for cheap tourist buys and great for convenience. Definitely stay here!!!
Stayed in this hotel in February '04, and must admit, it's a fantastic hotel. Rooms are just about the right size, very cozy and warm, with all the necessary needs...phone, hairdryer, tv, central heating, and tea/coffee facilities. The room and also bathroom were kept spotless conditions!! Breakfast was great too. The staff were very friendly and very helpful too. Last but not least, the hotel is positioned in a fantastic location.
Tiny room, no bath (shower only - which was not clearly noted in the info sheet...), coffee maker was out of order and no memo pad was readily available...
Excelent Room Rate in the Heart of Oxford Street
one can not get a good rate for a room in this area of London. Frankly I think, for doing your shopping at Oxford street, one can not get a better bargain.
Hate the place
The rooms are small and very inconvenient. The service of the front desk manager is as bad as one can imagin. The maintenance of the hotel is terrible. I was injured by a large, heavy wood panel which all of a sudden came off the wall in the bath room.
