Hi I will be reconnecting with my birth father very soon and have never be to London. So I do not knoe where to stsrt. He lives in Ilford which I can not find much about but I know its in Essex, I will be flying into London and have no idea how far london is from Ilford and not sure where to make home base while Im there ...should I commute from London where are there some nice hotels close by? I looked at Hotels in Ilford and none looked worth staying in. Im thinking I might stay in London and do a little sight seeing or is it going to be a trek to go out there a few times. I will probably be there for about 4 days
If anyone can give me any advice I'm open to any and all suggestions. I would like at least a 3 possibly 4 star hotel depending on price and locaction.
