Last time I was in London was in the year 2000 and I couldn't remember anything either of that visit or when I lived in London in 1972 - a very long time ago.
We caught the tube to Leicester Square and found the Hop-on Hop-off bus company fairly easily and changed our voucher for tickets. We had breakfast in a nearby shop and it was almost 11am by the time we caught our first HOHO bus. The ticket seller laughed at us in our quilted jackets and ...

From here we got great pics of the Tower Bridge, The Shard, which is the tallest building in Europe, and waited for one of the boats to take us back to Westminster.
... back to Jess' flat on the DLR for a nice home cooked dinner (nice to get some vegetable intake now and then!). It was really nice to spend time with family over this side of the world. Wednesday 16 April Started off the day with a walking tour of the royal area of London. Starting at Covent Garden, we visited and learnt about Trafalgar Square, St James Palace (for the changing of the guard), Buckingham Palace, St James Park, Westminster Abbey and the ...
... the scaffold monument (located near the spot where the beheadings of prominent "guests" at the Tower would have taken place) where we heard a tour guide casually mention that each of these execution victims' bodies were buried in the Chapel Royal, a few steps away. No photography was allowed in the Chapel, but I promise you, we stood in front of the graves of Sir Thomas More, 17th Earl of Oxford Edward de Vere, Lady Jane Grey, Catherine Howard, and ...
... t remember anything about it. We only had a few hours to look around and it didn't help that my travelling companion decided to go AWOL for over an hour. The staff were really good and helped find her but I was rather annoyed to put it mildly.
We got behind schedule and it was only that the woman who we were staying with kindly ran us down to the tube station with our bags, that let us get to Kings ...

Historical Traveler Reviews The Dover Hotel London
Very good for the price
Bedroom and bathroom were very small, but overall a great room for the price. Hotel was clean and in a great location, near Victoria Station and a short walk to Buckingman Palace. I would stay there again.
We were required to pay the full amount when we checked in. No wonder! We would have left first thing in the morning if we hadn't. Didn't get any sleep the first night. Even though it was a Wednesday there was a steady flow of traffic up and down the stairs and doors banging all night. At 2 a.m. a man stood outside our door and had a loud and lengthy telephone conversation.
Each morning a waitress brought toast to the table without a word or a smile. We helped ourselves to cold cereal and hot drinks from machines. There were 2 men taking turns at reception. One may have been shy, the other was just surly.
The shower and toilet were teeny, as was the room. We had an uncomfortable stay and the staff were not friendly at all.
I would not stay at this hotel again.
Nothing to complain
We had double room with own toilette and shower. Room was tiny but enough anyway. Hotel was clean and tidy but of course old carpet was stqined and worn-out.
Breakfast was 2 kinds of juice, 5 cereals, toast, hot drinks, butter and marmalade.
Situation was very good. No noice from the staion. I can recommed this 2 star hotel. Bed was very good.
Fine for 2 star hotel
I had booked a triple ensuite. None were available on ceck in, so was given a double ensuite and a single. Was an acceptable budgit hotel. It was conveniently located within 3 blocks of Victoria station (athough a little difficult to find). It is very old and a little run down, but clean. The rooms were VERY small (even by European standards). Front desk was helpful.
