We got back from our trip to London this past Tuesday and we had a great time. Thank you all on this forum who were so helpful in questions i had. We stayed at the Lancaster Gate Hotel near Hyde Park (i already reviewed it, good value) and ran amuck over the whole city. I was so happy that it didn't rain at all either, who would have thought.
Our favorite was St. Paul's Cathedral by far. What a beautiful space and amazing views from the dome. Also spotted some Banksy art, we geeked out over that! It was near "curry road", we saw it on a walking tour of Jack the Ripper (the Ripping Yarns one- very enjoyable). We found that people were nice and most were helpful when we had questions.
We did buy a travelcard at a rail station, but as far as the whole 2-4-1 thing goes with that, well i still never figured it out, nothing on our card said anything about it, so maybe we were supposed to ask when we were at sites that gave deals? No biggie...
Just wanted to give a quick recap and once again, thanks to the forums. I couldn't plan my trips without doing research on here. Happy travels to you all!
