London – Day 1

We arrived in Heathrow at 6.20am and found ourselves on the Piccadilly Line heading for Gloucester Road Station – how easy it is to find your way around such a large city. We carried our packs with us along Cromwell Street marvelling at how quiet the streets were. We passed the Natural History Museum, Royal Albert Hall and explored the Kensington Gardens and Hyde Park where we enjoyed a coffee by The Serpentine before heading back past the Princess Diana Memorial Garden and back through the Kensington Gardens to Kensington Palace. We then dropped our baggage at the apartment in a basement cupboard and headed off to explore London. We tubed it to Covent Gardens, picked up our tickets for the Lion King 2pm matinee show and the explored West End – The rain began to fall and found us leap frogging between shop awnings for shelter. The Lion King was a fabulous colourful musical show as we battled with our eyelids that wanted to shut and be whisked away to the sounds of Africa.

After the show we headed down The Strand to Traflgar Square under Admirality Arch and down The Mall towards Buckingham Palace, back through St James Park to check out Westminster Abbey, the Houses of Parliament, Big Ben across Westminster Bridge, along the Queens Walk, past the London Eye, back over the River Thames and through the streets of Covent Gardens with a pitstop for an Italian dinner, back on the tube to Gloucester Road, a quick stop at the supermarket for breakfast supplies and a well earned sleep.

    …..also keen to hear what Royal Brunei airlines was like to fly with (assuming that is actually correct) – very competively priced and would consider flying with them dependant on your views.

      We have been very happy with Royal Brunei thus far (they are flying the Dreamliner on this route) and would rate it better than Qatar. The jury still out on the extra stop along the way. Has its pros and cons…
