We added some time in London onto the end of our Scotland trip. We had to go through Heathrow anyway, and it was pretty easy to get a 24h layover. We arrived at the airport around 10. We had to collect our bags, then catch the train to the city. There were two trains going into the city, and the difference was about 15 minutes at twice the price. Needless to say, we took the cheaper train (Heathrow Connect, for those of you who might need it one day).
We got to our hotel and checked in. Our room was teeny-tiny. Monica made a great video, but I can't seem to upload videos at the moment. It was a study in space-saving. The sink was in the desk.
First stop was the arch. Then lots of awesome architecture, and the Canadian Embassy.
After the trip on the Eye we got back on the bus and saw more sights. We really didn't have time to get off the bus again at any other sights. We finished out the ride and ended up back at the hotel. It's really a shame that we had so little time there. It was such a beautiful city, I just wanted to get off the bus and walk around. I really want to go back sometime when it's warm and I can spend entire days exploring.
The rest of my London pics are here.
