This weekend we stayed in London - saved up for throughout the year in our money box on the SFT Challenge. We know London well so planned our route to avoid crowds and to keep travel costs down....
We drove to West Norwood and found free parking on a private road, we used Zone 1-4 one day Travelcard (£8 each) for unlimited tube/bus travel.
We stayed at Marylebone Road Travel Lodge right opposite the station.
It is very basic accommodation but clean, comfortable and central.
We decided to pass up on the Ice Bar and do some shopping instead.
|Borough Market/Covent Gdn Weatherspoon Ladies Mosaic Loo!|
Our first stop was Borough Market, a walk over the wobbly bridge to St Pauls and
on by bus to Regent Street, we walked to Liberty, Oxford Circus and along the back streets
to Marble Arch (it was very crowded on the main shopping routes)
We ate out in Edgeware Road at Maroush and Al Azar
This area is where you will find all the Lebanese cuisine and culture which we really like.
We took a bus all the way back to the car (£2.40 each x 1 hour)
As we returned the wet weather turned to storms which during the night have brough trees down
and caused severe disruption to trains/flights from Gatwick.
We had a great time but are glad to be home.
