Unfortunately the wet weather followed us across but it did stop us from venturing out in the afternoon to the "Hamleys" Toy Store in Regent St, just 10minutes walk from our apartment. I had forgotten how busy Walking down Oxford St was though had gained plenty of practice walking around Paris. I must admit though it was nice to walk around with less people smoking.
The kids had a ball looking at all the toys ...
Last night we went to see the musical comedy Spamalot. This show is based on the movie Monty Python and the Holy Grail. What a great show.
We finished off the evening with a lovely meal at a great new Italian restaurant in ...

I just hate how the drinks are never cold around this place. When we finished lunch we decided to get the boat back to Westminister pier then walk back to the motel but the others walked back. We came back to the motel for a couple of hours and mum and dad went to get some credit and ...

that is as surprising as it is reassuring. “Let’s take the Underground” she
says and quickly proceeds to buy the tickets. Took us a little over an hours

We walked through the first part of the markets, but as we were very short on time we weren't able to take our time and really enjoy it, so we settled on at least seeing as much as we could and then coming back on a different day.
Moving over to the other side of the markets we crossed into the more Gothic Chic area, the first stop I took Joahn in was this amazing wild shop 'Cyberdog' which I knew would blow his socks off!
And boy was ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Premier Inn London City - Tower Hill
Good accessible Hotel in London
Transfered to this hotel due the the Comfort Inn not being appropriate, I found this hotel superb. For the price this is excellent, quality of room, fully accessible, with choice of accessible shower or bath. Good sized well furnished rooms that are easy to get a wheelchair in and around, Staff extremely helpful. Food reasonable for a chain hotel. Would recommend it to anyone needing an accessible hotel, and the location is great just round the corner from some of the main attractions in London.
Buona posizione (a pochi passi dalla metro). Le camere erano molto spaziose e perfettamente pulite, i letti comodi, il bagno fantastico, ecc. Il bar era aperto 24 ore su 24. La colazione era buona e c'era un assortimento piuttosto ampio, purtroppo la sala era sempre piena e bisognava fare una lunga coda, persino alle 8.00 di domenica mattina! - Per fortuna siamo scesi alle 7.30, così non abbiamo dovuto aspettare! L'unico problema lo abbiamo incontrato all'atto del check-in. Avevamo prenotato 3 camere per non fumatori con oltre 2 mesi di anticipo (prima che l'hotel aprisse), ma quando siamo arrivati erano rimaste soltanto delle camere per fumatori!! Non capisco come sia potuta succedere una cosa del genere! Quindi, siamo finiti in camere per fumatori nel seminterrato! Meno male che l'hotel è nuovo, di conseguenza non c'era alcun odore di fumo. In generale, è un hotel molto bello.
Cercavamo una sistemazione in centro e alla fine abbiamo scelto quest'hotel, anche perché è appena stato aperto nel marzo 2007. Quando siamo arrivati e abbiamo fatto il check-in, abbiamo scoperto che c'era a disposizione soltanto una camera per non fumatori (noi ne avevamo prenotate 2 e con oltre una settimana di anticipo). L'hotel ha ben 3 piani riservati ai fumatori!!!!!!! Comunque, abbiamo protestato, ecc. ecc., così ci hanno spostati in una camera familiare. A parte questo inconveniente, l'hotel è molto bello e pulito e la colazione è buona (ma dopo aver mangiato, i clienti devono sparecchiare la tavola). Per arrivare al London Bridge e alla Torre di Londra a piedi ci volevano 10 minuti e lo stesso tempo per raggiungere la stazione della metro più vicina, Algate East. Un taxi per il West End costava 15 sterline (circa 22 euro). Mi è piaciuto molto, ci tornerei volentieri.
Value for money
Good location (short walk to tube). Rooms very very spacious, spotlessly clean, comfy bed, gorgeous bathroom etc. Bar open 24 hours. Good breakfast - good range of food, although it got very very busy (big queues by 8am sunday morning!) - thankfully we got there for 7.30 and just missed the queues!!
Only complaint was check in. We had book 3 non smoking rooms over 2 months earlier (before the hotel had opened) but when we checked in they had only smoking rooms left!! Couldnt really understand why that would happen?! SO we ended up on the basement level in smoking rooms! Thankfully as the hotel is new, it didnt really matter as we couldnt smell any smoke. Overall it was a very nice hotel.
we wanted to stay somewhere close so choose this hotel [and it was only opened in march 07].the only problem we had when we checked in was to find out that the two non-smoking rooms we booked they only had one left [we booked well over 1 week]we were not happy about this they have 3 floors for smokers!!!!!!!
anyway we said we were not happt etc etc and in the in they 'upgraded'us to a family room. apart fr that very nice clean hotel,good breakfast [but you have to clear the tables yourself]. took 10 mins to walk to london bridge and the tower of london nearest tube was algate east about 10min walk. taxi cost about £15.00 fr west end. would stay there again very nice.
