... British hot pockets. After lunch we toured the Tower of London courtesy of the Beefeater who was hilarious. After the tour we were able to see the Crown Jewels. That was pretty cool and I would say it is a must do/see if you are ever in London. They have the largest Diamond in the world which is over 500 karats!
After the tour we ate at a place called Hung, Drawn and Quartered. ...
... see all of London! The Eye was pretty cool, though cities kind of scare me, haha, London is huge.
During my Eye ride I basically just took a bunch of photos of Big Ben, is just amazing. After that journey I decided to call it an early night, I'm trying to take it easy this weekend to get the pain down a bit. But I did eat an early dinner at that vegan place I like- yummm veggies!). Tomorrow I transfer to my ...
... be that everywhere I went I saw a wedding. The bridge was painted in red, white, and blue for the Union Jack and it was quite a sight to see. I also saw the Shard, City Hall, and many other huge skyscraper buildings from there. It started pouring again, so we decided to head back. It wasn't even raining in east London so we lucked out. We grabbed some fish and chips before I packed up and left for the airport. It was a great weekend overall, and I definitely plan on going ...
... complete, which requires some sightseeing in Marylebone, and Aidan and I may end up taking in some locations associated with The Beatles in London as well--Paul McCartney's Cavendish Avenue home, Abbey Road Studios, and the zebra crossing where the famous album cover was photographed are a very short distance from one another and a number of other Beatles film locations as well. Definitely check back tomorrow for an update on this little side adventure...
We took the tube to Aldgate East in the heart of Whitechapel for the eagerly awaited Jack the Ripper tour. We had 50 people on our tour and so did many, many others so the place was swarming with tourists. It detracted from the overall experience. The guide ...

Historical Traveler Reviews The Goring London
The Goring: A Delightful Treat
Three years ago my wife and I stayed at the wonderful Goring Hotel with our 6-year old granddaughter. What a delightful treat it was for all of us. Peter (the doorman) treated our granddaughter as if she were his own and Ernest (at the concierge desk) was never too busy to answer her questions. She and Lord Harley Shawcross had a wonderful conversation one evening in the lounge, not long before he died. A photo of the two of them that evening is in her scrap book. In August 2004 we will return to the Goring with two more grandchildren.
We just returned from a delightful stay at The Goring. We have been to London several times and stayed at lovely hotels, but this is by far the best experience we have had. The hotel is the ultimate British hotel...incredible service without being stuffy or pretentious. The location is very convenient...two blocks from the Victoria tube station. The rooms and baths are large and luxurious. The staff goes over and above to make sure your stay is perfect. We will definitely return to The Goring on our next visit to London.
The Goring is Special!
My husband and I have stayed at The Goring during our last two trips to Britain, in 2002, and again in 2003. We plan to stay again in 2004. The service is outstanding - we are always made to feel as if we are the only people in the hotel. The owner, George Goring, has instilled a level of quality and service that we did find at The Browns (another 5-star hotel in London), or anywhere else. The rooms are good sized, with beautiful bathrooms, and impeccably clean. The restaurant is fabulous. The Goring is a special, and it makes you feel special. I saw someone who gave it a bad rating on this site, and I can't help but think they stayed at a different hotel and have the name wrong. Every other rater gave 5-stars. The Goring is a special, special place!
The ONLY Place to stay in London
Stayed at the Goring more times than I can count. I've tried other places, but I always come "home".
Outstanding location (Be there on the Queen's birthday for the Trooping of the Colour), nice clean and big rooms, a hall porter for whom nothing is unusual, and the best welcome in all of the UK.
Not much in the way a flash, but overflowing in style.
No, no,no,don't go.
last spring, we had the misfortune of spending one night at the goring.
we booked a suite. the furniture was befitting a munchkin. the toilet was not in the bathroom but across the tiny living room in a tiny room all its own. we left as soon as we could and moved over to the beaufort gardens apartments. it was less money,10 times nicer and a few blocks from harrod's. for the same money you can find much better accomodation and in a nicer part of town.
I have stayed at The Goring many, many times since 1990. You can spend more (but not much) but you will never find a classier small friendly hotel in all of London.
Everything about The Goring is perfect. The service is incredible. I usually fly out of Gatwick, and they trolley my luggage to Victoria Station (about two blocks) for my connection to the Gatwick "check-in-here" train.
The Goring is a quiet, refined, most-English-hotel-immaginable. The staff and location are superb. Returning to the Goring is as anticipated as the city itself.
This really is a "classic" they do not need to change anything
I have stayed at the Goring regularly for almost a decade. Not cheap but I have stayed at more expensive hotels in London that are less warm and friendly. It is consistent, clean, friendly and with good British food. This really is a "classic" they do not need to change anything. I never stay anywhere else in London.
Tad expensive but the rooms, staff and food were all excellent -as for Mr Gorings cocktail evenings every Saturday -well an experience like no other hotel we've stayed at.
Spectacular & Classic London Hotel
If you want to stay in one of the finest Hotels in London and experience the charm and culture of the "Best of Britain" there is no better place to start than this fabulous Family owned and Operated Hotel (patronized for centuries by the Royal family ) a "stones throw" from Buckingham Palace.
