... on our return trip as they offer a Sunday roast beef dinner which sounds divine.
From the pub we rushed off via tube to Westminster Abbey for their 5:00 p.m. Evensong church service. It gives one an opportunity to hear the choir singing in that beautiful building, along with a forty minute prayer service. It was very nice and a lot of people were in attendance. The stained glass windows and statutes which fill the abbey are breathtakingly beautiful. We are so glad ...
... taken with Degustation menus and matching wines. Luke, has now experienced how nice wines taste and with Luke's restrictive dietary tastes he ' pushed the boat out ' and tried ( and liked most ) all of the dishes.
Once all the lunch diners had left the staff ( they had so many) had about 45minutes off before staff dinner, setup and do it all again for dinner. The restaurant seats about 40.

Thanks to a tip off from Donna, it was off to the Mall.
Today was the opening of parliament by Hey Majesty the Queen. She travels from Buckingham Palace to Parliament on her royal coach. Today she travelled in her new state Coach we took 12 years to build by an Aussie cosh builder from NSW.
We made good speed to get there thinking there would be a crowd...but it wasn't too bad - we got front row position.

throughout the week.
There is a variety of activities offered by the hostel and a
bunch of stuff to do around the neighborhood. We bought one of the tourist City
Passes to avoid the long queue times.
Our hostel is infinitely nicer than the hostel I stayed in
while in San Francisco. Everything is so clean and there are so many facilities
available (food, drink, laundry, internet, etc.). Today is our down time day.
Seamus took the day off, so Terry, Paddy and I went into Ye Olde Cheshire Cheese on Fleet Street for lunch. This gorgeous pub was rebuilt after the Great Fire, and is full of little bars and snugs and atmosphere. Naturally Paddy hit his head going down the steps. I loved the thought that I could have been sitting in the favourite seat of Dr Johnson, Charles Dickens or Mark Twain.The beer was good, the food scrumptious and the ambience could easily have lured us into staying ...

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.
Buon rapporto qualità/prezzo
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.
Clean, new, spacious modern hotel.
A new hotel in the heart of the City of London, close to Tower Bridge and Tower of London.
This is a new hotel so very modern, excellent decor and eveything working. Nice new TV, kettle, and a comfortable bed. My room came with a view of the Mayor's Office and Tower of London. Very large room (for England), full-length mirror and also round mirror, nice pictures and enough space for 2 people to hang clothes. A desk big enough to study at, comfortable chair and desk lamp. Coffee, tea and biscuits every day.
They advertise wireless internet at 5 pounds per hour, but the signal strength was so poor I couldn't connect. But Starbucks is 5 minutes walk, and free wireless access! (monday to friday only).
The bathroom was very modern and clean, with a big shower cubical and nice shower. No bath but you could fit 3 people in the shower!
Very friendly, helpful staff. The bar attendant coudn't do enough for us.
Breakfast wasn't included in my deal, and at 10 pounds per visit I decided to visit the local cafes for coffee and a croissant - there are lots in the area (weekdays only - the local cafes and bars are mostly shut during saturday and sunday).
Great location for East London sights, 10 minutes walk from Tower of London and Tower Bridge.
Only a few negatives to this hotel - there was no safe in the room; no fridge; no glasses for drinks. No trouser press. But overall, very good - I give it 8 out of 10.
A little character-less, but the location and mordern decor make it well worthwhile. Highly recommended!
