Only in London part of 1 day. Getting into Gatwick at mid-day and staying close to Pancras Eurostar station.
We would like to " do " The Shard , and the " Emirates Skyline " trip across The Thames. Is it most sensible
to get train into the city and do our sightseeing before travelling by tube to Pancras later in order to get the
best value of our few hours ? What I mean is would it be wasting precious time travelling to Pancras simply
to check-in to our hotel before the sight-seeing? We will only have back-packs - travelling light !
Thanks in advance for any/all advice/suggestions.
