Cardiff - London 2015 - Part 3

Going To London

Sunday - May 3rd 2015

Today we had to leave Cardiff for London. After breakfast we checked out and headed to the bus station. Our bus departed around 10:00am and we arrived at the Victoria coach station in London in the early afternoon. At the Victoria train station we purchased our London Travelcard and then we took the subway to Vauxhall and from there the train to Wandsworth Town. In 2011 we stayed in Wandsworth as well, but in a different hotel. This time we chose the Holiday Inn Express and although it was already a bit older, we felt very comfortable there. Our room was nothing special, just an ordinary hotel room, but it was clean and that was all that mattered. Breakfast and wi-fi were included and unlike in many hotels, the w-lan was working very well. When we arrived, our room wasn't ready yet and so we got a Boddingtons beer at the hotel bar. Soon the room was available and after we unpacked our luggage, we took the train back into the city.

For today we didn't have any plans and so we just did a walking tour from the Waterloo train station to the London Eye and from there to Trafalgar Square and Soho. There we had an early dinner at Maoz Falafel and then we continued our walking tour to China Town, Leicester Square and Picadilly Circus. Before we returned to the Spanish Festival at the London Eye, we stopped at the Sherlock Holmes Pub and enjoyed a beer. Back at the hotel we shared a drink at the bar and then we went to  bed.
