Well the little darlings did it again, bloody party animals, 2am so I got 3 more minutes sleep than the night before! Hopefully this will be t and they will acclimatise. You know your tired when you start wondering if kids can have temazapan crushed p in a small glass of orange juice! We went to the same cafe for breaky it was great once again, we all enjoyed our meals. We caught the train to the Tower of London and the Crown Jewels. It was great ...
... interesting to see a location so frequently shown on the news 'in the flesh'. The House of Commons certainty lives up to its name and class-based origins, whilst the House of Lords and surrounding halls are reflective of a bygone era of government. Standing in the overwhelming Westminster Hall in which monarchs and leaders have lain in state, amongst the other uses of hall, was also an ...
... and the views are incredible, as the sun set in the distance, on the way home we had a great lady taxi driver who chatted all the way and took us on a great ride along the embankment.
Sleep and packing - nothing to say.
Now we are packed and ready for the trek to Gatwick, for our BA flight to the cloggies, and in true London form its raining DOH
Look out family here we come.
See you all soon from the tulip country M&P ...
Happy 4th of July! and the 5th too.
Two days of walking almost non-stop. Our tour guide, Haydon Luke, was awesome, but a drill sergeant. Breaks were not an option. Only lunch. Thankfully there were occasional tube rides to rest our weary foot. Fortunately it wasn't just me. I did see others rolling and stretching their feet too.
We met our guide bright and early and headed to Tower Hill where we looked at the Tower of London and went to the start ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Enterprise Hotel London
Again, the room given must be of an 'Internet Room'!! Why? Because on the first occassion, they gave us a room which is in the middle of two floors..and the door hits the bedside as soon as you open it! Not enough floor space to put our only two luggages! and the room smells!
Pretty Darned Bad
If you enjoy bad odors and unfriendly staff, the Enterprise is for you!
The morning wake-up call is a bit unusual...the sound of someone clanking on the pipes next door. Rooms are small and I wouldn't recommend walking around barefoot on the carpeting. We had a great view of the dirty disgusting alley and the screen on the window appeared as though hadn't been cleaned since King George IV. The staff threatened to charge us for an extra person when we came home one night at 4 a.m.
and had a friend with us. One good thing was the water pressure in the shower was nice and temperature stayed hot. But, when you did shower the whole bathroom got wet.
I am not sure how this hotel ever got a 3 star rating. The hotel is not air conditioned but each room is given their own personal fan which on the 4th floor doesn't do a bit of good. You also could not leave the fan on during the days in hopes that it might cool the room down because there was a defeat switch for the electricity. When you handed over your key, you turned off the electricity in the room. The hotel is not well maintained - the elevator would not come down to the ground floor, you had to walk up one flight of stairs to get on it (the signs announcing this problem seem to have been there for awhile so I don't think there was any rush to fix it), the carpet on the steps has been there since the hotel opened, the doors are paper thin (while waiting for the elevator I could hear someone snoring!) and to top it all off, there was a foul smell in the bathroom. The only way I would give this hotel anything but a terrible rating is if they sent me all my money back. Pick another hotel!
