United Kingdom - RudyDecember 2, 2013
We had a great trip. I am in love with London. What a terrific and vibrant city. So much to do and so little time. The weather was perfect for this time of year. In the 50’s and sunny every day. Did all the tourist things. Viewed and toured all the main sights from Big Ben, Parliament, St. Pauls Cathedral, Westminster Abbey, Buckingham Fountain, Tower of London, Globe Theatre, Hampton Court Palace, Harrod’s, The V&A Museum, Buckingham Palace etc;. Rode the “Tube” everywhere.
We attended the Evensong service at Westminster Abbey and had the privilege to sit in the seats normally reserved for the dignitaries and choir only. We sat right next to the choir. They sounded beautiful.
Saw a play (The Entertainer) at the Old Vic Theatre. It was Fantastic. What great acting!
Robert Lindsay played the lead role of Archie Rice that was originally played 50 years ago by Sir Laurence Olivier.
We had six row center seats that we got half price at Leicester Square TKTS. Unbelievable!!!
The hotel and all arrangements were excellent. Thank You!
Oh yes, we did have dinner at a terrific little restaurant called the Masala Zone (right up your alley taste wise) right around the corner from the hotel.
Now on our next trip to England I have to visit my cousins who live just outside of Manchester, in Leicester, and Nottingham.
Although our next trip will probably be to Italy. Take care. I’ll let you know of our next travel plans.
