Today we went to the British Museum it was the BIGGEST museum I've ever seen when you walk in, you walk into this massive glass room. There was all these displays of so many different things that you could never imagine.
After this my family and i went to Tate Modern, there was a small collection but it was pretty good. At the bottom of Tate …
... meal at the pub, a tour of their property, a few games in the yard and an early night later, I was back doing 70 mph to make the 9am ferry. I arrived as it pulled away, certain Tracey was on it. I decided to check the nearest campsite (after finding it) and there she was – big smile with arms out stretched. I was ropable!! I demanded to know where the tent was, stormed passed, grabbed my passport - all with intentions of riding ...
... it sounded. To be honest the room wasn't too bad, it was a real double bed which is hard to find on tour and the creaky floor boards became charming after awhile. We weren't in the room long as we were ready for our waking tour around York, this ancient city is a former Viking settlement and is home to the second largest cathedral in Northern Europe, the majestic York minster. The gothic style church only comes second to the gorgeous church in ...
... I'd choose. This particular collection had enough pieces for four sets, and are beautifully carved from walrus tusks.
We went further upstairs to the print room to try to find the Japanese 'The Great Wave' painting, but it was off display at the moment, so then it was back down to the ground floor to find the big basalt Easter Island statue - Hoa Hakananai'a - in the Living and Dying exhibition.Through another room to the Aztec section to find ...
... From there you zigzagged through all the exhibits explaining where they lived, habitats, mannerisms and all manner of models. It was really busy so quite noisy but occasionally you would hear small children screaching, we soon worked out why. There was a very realistic model of a T-Rex head complete with extremely large teeth that was up quite high, parents were holding small children up next to it to take a photo and of course the children having just seen the ...

Historical Traveler Reviews K West Hotel & Spa London
Our visit to London was our first and very exciting. The K West hotel was less than a 5 min walk to the tube and we were able go go all over the place. It was a visit we will never forget. The hotel was fabulos! It exceeded my expectations and the service was the best.
What a FAB Hotel
What a great hotel!! Had one of the best stays ever. With super large beds and a great selection of DVDs to watch on the widescreen. Great bonus to have free use of the gym, Jacuzzi and other facilities. Great look, funky bar just vry cool all round. Didnt try the treatments but my partner tried the hot stone massage and he raved about it. Definately worth a visit!
K West is a terrrific hotel!
I, and a traveling companion, had the good fortune to stay at the K West Hotel in London and we were extremely pleased with the accommodations and service. After searching the internet profusely for the hotel that would meet our needs: 1/ internet access for communication home 2/ convenient location for tube travel (Kensington Olympia Station just a safe, 5 minute walk), 3/ exercise facility, and 4/ new and upgraded furnishings, we found this jewel of a hotel. Although not in the center of the "tourist district", we found this hotel to tremendously exceed our expectations. I would highly recommend! Catherine, the reservations manager was a delight to deal with, also. Phyllis Payne
We stayed at the K West Hotel in February, 2003. It isn't centrally located in London, but you can take the Tube anywhere in no time. The Hotel itself is OK if you are more interested in image than in quality. It is very modern/contemporary, and they play Euro style techno junk over the speakers in the lobby/lounge area. All employees wear black and act as though you are beneath them. Starting to get the picture? Our room itself was along the same lines-nice to look at but lacking in real comfort. The bed was hard and uncomfortable enough to give me a backache, which I have never experienced with any other hotel bed in my life. The shower had a pane of glass that only covered half of the tub area, so we flooded the bathroom everytime we took a shower. But I guess it looks cool, so function doesn't matter. My suggestion-find a place that is more central. You will be better off.
K West, very nice hotel
It is a lovely hotel, the rooms are spacious the the beds were extremely comfortable. I liked the robes in the large bathroom and the cable tv and available DVD. It was in zone 2 section of London but not really inconvienent. The tube was about 1 1/2 blocks away. The staff was friendly and available and checked us in well before our 2 pm check in. I would stay here again
Excellent deluxe room, ignore the neighborhood
The hotel is located outside of central London in the Shepherd's Bush neighborhood -- sadly it is not a can't miss spot for the tourist -- this is working class London. There is a mall with a cinema close by as well as convenience stores and eateries. Even more positive, you are a short bus or tube ride away from Notting Hill.
The hotel was kind enough to upgrade me to a deluxe room from a standard room without charge. The deluxe room is wonderfully spacious with a large bathroom that allows you to stretch your limbs freely. The extra large king-size bed is a great pleasure after a long day of traversing central London. It all makes up for the location.
Loved the room
The rooms are amazing. We got the Deluxe room. It has a very comfortable bedroom, widescreen TV, and dvd. It really is a design hotel (notice the various colors on the ceiling of the hallway). Saw that this hotel was named in GQ's 100 Best Things in the world 2002. Having free internet access was a plus. Hotel is located close the tube stop, supermarket and restaurants.
While there are small signs that the hotel was recently refurbished, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The hotel has the basic accoutrements of a luxury hotel, including bathrobes for guest use, hair dryer, electric pants press (great!)in room, stocked fridge, new aesthetically pleasing (modern) furniture, and GENUINELY comfortable mattress and bedding.
I spent 8 nights at the K West Hotel. It is very close to the Shepherd's Bush tube station (Central Line), about a 3 min walk. They were in the midst of changing the rooms from when it was Kensington.
Do not stay here!!!
we´ve stayed at the K-West hotel for only 2 nights. Thanks god. The staff is not very pleasant and helpful - i think they don´t know what "service" really means. i´ve asked them for the adress of an special restaurant. after 30 minutes, they gave me a call - no adress, only a telefone number of the restaurant. but this number wasn´t wright. so i called my friend in austria to look for the adress.
When you go for breakfast, the first thing you´ll see, is the garbage behind the buffett. DISGUSTING!! you must imagine - this is a four star hotel. ($ 200 per night)
by the way - rooms are ok and very spacious! but that´s the only good thing.
And at least - the k west hotel ist too far away from the city!
