The rooms, people, grounds, service and breakfasts were all top quality, but coming home late on the DLR I found a bit nerve wracking as men hang around the dark tunnels that you need to walk through to get back. Perhaps I could have found another route and I would in future catch a cab back. Very good location for the Thames walk, the Globe and Tate modern though. Just catch DLR to Bank and it is a great walk from there. Do visit the chapel. It is quite profoudly moving integration of the past and present of the Foundation, reflected in the contents, the design and the materials. I was also interested to read about the innovative work they are involved in on the noticeboards.
