Where I stayed
Rain eased off slightly as we got off onto a shuttle bus to Terminal 5. We were on the last bus and ragging the chain a bit so by the time we passed through immigration, no line, and picked up our bags, the customs officials had clocked off and we walked through without so much as a hello.
On to the Express train to Paddington, 20 mins, great way to get right into the city. We decide to get a cab rather than another train and somehow we managed to fit all 5 of us plus all our gear into a London Cab. 5 big bags plus backpacks, Brilliant.
Arrive at our B&B in Pimlico, great spot. Rooms could be a bit bigger, but we have just come from Vegas were everything is huge. Nanna in with girls in a triple room and Amanda and I in a double next door but 1. Find the Laundromat around the corner and get some essentials done.
After a freshening shower, we head our for a quick recky. Everything you need in the way of shops and transport within a few blocks. 4 Restaurants on two pubs in the street around the corner. We settle on O Sole Mio right next door and had a great meal, all polished off including deserts all round.
Off to sleep to knock off the jetlag.
