Twenty or so hours following the Singapore stopover, we arrived in wet and gloomy London early in the morning. By the time we were cleared from customs, I was starving. It took forever! We then caught The Tube to Earl’s Court where are our hotel was a few minutes walk away from the station. Nice area. We checked in and got upgraded to a suite! Had breakfast in a nearby tavern and went back to the hotel for a quick nap before heading to The Savoy Hotel for a nice lunch at Gordon Ramsay’s Savoy Grill.
Despite the weather, it was the perfect time to visit the UK as the locals were celebrating The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee. It was very festive and it sure made London more colourful.
