Thursday June 26th - The Fat Duck Experience.

No time for a run as we had to get organised as the taxi was picking us all up plus luggage at 9.30 to get a train ( with one change) and another taxi to the Fat Duck for our lunch at 12. The Fat Duck is in the lovely village of Bray in Berkshire.
The journey went well and we managed to get a large taxi to take us all from Maidenhead to Bray. We arrived at 11.30 and Simon went into the restaurant to check they had remembered we were coming ...

Huxley papers!

Today I spent the morning looking at Huxley's papers at the Imperial College London! It was so fun to get off the Tube for the second day in a row at the South Kensington station and follow the "Museum" signs, all on my way to "work." I looked at a few letters Busk wrote to Huxley, as well as a few in which Busk was mentioned. I also looked at a huge folder of drawings and such for Huxley's Man's Place ...

... taxes instead of the reputed £3399 (approx.) it would have cost (each) had we been rich and famous or even rich OR famous. Upper Class is Virgin’s equivalent of First Class. This was a once in a lifetime experience. We were so curious to see how the ‘other half’ live! We would finally gain entrance to their first class lounge otherwise referred to as the ‘Club House’ .

The lady at the check in was very polite. Everything was done ...

Day 10: The One With The Book of Mormon

... Circus. Aidan had yet to see Picadilly Circus, but he seemed less impressed with it than I had been when I first saw it. In any case, it was here that we disembarked (or "alighted" as the automated voice is so fond of saying; "Alight here for..." and "Mind the gap between the train and the platform" are two phrases that will stick with me until I die because of the London Underground!) and headed off toward the Cavendish.

    Historical Traveler Reviews K West Hotel & Spa London

    Great Visit!!

    from

    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

    from

    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!

    from

    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

    You can do better

    from

    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

    from

    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

    from

    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

    from

    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.

    Enjoyable stay

    from

    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.

    K West Hotel

    from

    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!!!

    from

    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!
