... let you travel with an animal as cabin baggage. On other airlines they travelled in the hold. Zita was a great traveller and slept the whole flight. He had a 40 minute wait before flying on to Hamburg.
Once we were boarded and the plane started taxiing we found out why the one hour flying tine flight is a one hour 40 flight. - the queue for the runway. No wonder both Heathrow and Gatwick want to build an extra runway.
Anyway we arrived ...
And the lighted lamp reminds me of the lamp in
“The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe”
in the lantern waste just as you leave Narnia.
We had a great afternoon with Margery and Stephen, so much laughter and
discussion. Hope to see them in Australia next year.
Tomorrow we have lunch with my cousins and Monday, we get on a plane and go home.
What a great holiday this has been.
... Gough’s Sunflowers and Monet’s Water Lily Pond), and the National Portrait Gallery. I really enjoyed the portrait gallery, with portraits ranging from old kings and queens, and all sorts of different historic figures (writers, politicians, actors) through the ages to present day faces and contemporary pieces including Tony Blair, Princess Di and Catherine.

I remember when I was younger my grandma would always save us the travel packs that you get on long flights - socks, eye mask, ear plugs, travel toothbrush and the smallest toothpaste known to man, which probably required the Who's of Whoville to manufacture, as no machinery on Earth could possibly work on such a small scale.
... in Greenwich near to our accommodation. Here is located the designated the prime meridian of the world. So we got lots of photos with us in two places at once. One foot in the west and the other in the east. As we couldn't find a bus stop to go our way we trudged home in the dark as it was then so late, ie 5:30 pm. So this ended our last full day in jolly old London ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Holiday Inn Express London Royal Docks - Docklands
We stayed at the Holiday Inn for three nights in June.
Hi all... stayed here recently and was glad I chose this hotel rather than an exorbitant Central London location. As previously mentioned, this hotel is in Zone 3 (Canning Town Stn on the Jubilee Line), which is rather far from the sights located in Zone 1& 2, but nonetheless it's proximity to the tube station (5 mins walk) made it very convenient. It is also relatively easy getting from LHR to the hotel via Piccadilly Line. It only required 1 change @ Green Park to the Jubilee Line. =)
We booked this hotel for four nights strictly based on reviews on this site. I re-read them just now and they were almost entirely accurate. We were finishing up a long driving holiday in the UK and it was great to park the car here for free and use the tube, and then have the car to drive back to Heathrow (on a Sunday, avoiding horrendous traffic and the congestion charge). It was easy to get there on the M25 and M11 from the north, but anyone planning to get back to Heathrow by car should plan to do it on a Saturday or Sunday morning. Driving back to the M25 and around would take forever.
the room was spacious and they were all accomodating. my flight came into london early and they checked me in early. they didnt have my twin room ready because i was several hours early so they gave me a single room and had the maids bring up another bed.
Just got back from a 4 night stay. The room is fairly clean and spacious for London. A few minute walk from Canning Town DLR station. It's nice because you can also hop on the Jubilee line from the same station. The area around the hotel is industrial, and there are low income housing projects nearby. But I never felt unsafe. There are no coffee shops or a convenience store nearby so plan ahead. The good thing was the bar was open until 2 a.m.
bit difficult to find as we got lost going through london but what a great find when we got there.
at first felt a bit unsure about the surronding area looked a bit shabby and a lot of construction work going on. however when we walked into the hotel we soon realised we had made a good choice.
the rooms were excellent very clean and modern the hotels location was fab as the train station and underground were just up the road and we were in london within 25 mins.
canary wharf was 10 mins away on the tube and we had a fantastic meal there on saturday night.
the combined location,price of this hotel and complimentary parking makes this a gem of a find.
will definately be going back a fantastic base for sightseeing.
Stayed for three nights at the beginning of November and used the hotel as a base for visiting London. Excellent location about 200 yards from Canning Town station (Jubilee Line and DLR) across a reasonably quiet road. Hotel was clean, safe and comfortable and the included continental breakfast was excellent.
Free, secure car parking although next to a building site.
Would stay here again!
Might seem a bit far out but this is a very good excellent value hotel just 100 yards from Canning Town bus, tube and DLR station. Great views of Canary Wharf (and the now defunct Millennium Dome). Can be a little noisy in the early mornings as traffic goes down to the Docks but shutting the window helps there! Twenty minutes on tube to Waterloo straight through so easy to get into central London on the Jubilee line. Spotlessly clean, new facilities and you can park for free. Nice 'continental' breakfast - self service. Recommended.
We looked at a lot of hotels on-line and talked to at least three different travel agents before picking this hotel.
A great find
I recently stayed at the Express by Holiday Inn for 7 nights Dec 26 to Jan 3. It is a great hotel. It is located 5 minutes from an underground station on the Jubilee Line, and about 20 minutes from central London. It is near the Royal Docklands, a 5 minute ride on the undergroud takes you to a huge developement with condos, shopping and restaurants.The hotel was opened 3 years ago, but it looks as if the doors were just opened. It is immaculant. The rooms are well kept, with one or two beds, a nice TV, with numerous channels, a very nice bathroom, with shower. The continental breakfast is very good. The lobby very nice, with a small bar. The staff is friendly. The hotel is in an extremley quite location. I highly recommend it.
