Group Travel Goals- London-High Tea, Tower of London, Churchill War room
So, this trip to London was the tail end of our romantic couples trip to South of France...We figured it would be fun to have our family fly out so we could have a little international turn up (and the guys kept the party going and went to Amsterdam after).
So when I say turn up, I mean turn up! On the first night, we decided to get in touch with a promoter and get a table at a club. These are the kind of things you can only learn from experience. I'll never plan the night out to a club and then an early morning activity after. I figured we had such a short time in London, let’s cram stuff in and make the most of it! So, we had a 9am wake up call for the bus to head out for our half-day tour. We had 11 people on the trip, and check out the picture above, there are only 9 people.....Reggie and Stein were missing. We sent the search team out to find them. And they did. They were here:
The struggle was real. So, they missed out on the awesome trip to the Tower of London where we saw the Crown Jewels (and the funny looking guards out front), The Churchill War Room, which is a must see! And couldn't leave without checking out of Buckingham Palace (unfortunately, there were no sightings of the queen or any royal family).
I think one of my favorite parts of London was the food! We went to some amazing dinner restaurants as well as brunch. I can't wait to share these restaurants when you are ready to plan your trip to London!! One experience that was so memorable was the High Tea at this awesome little Hotel. (I will definitely set this up for you!!) I don't think I had ever had scones before, and boy had I been missing out! They were amazing!!! (Awww, Reggie and Stein made it to Tea around 4pm, I'm sure it was just the jet lag right?!)
Overall, it was a great 3 days spent in London for us first timers. Now that I have close friends from London, I will know even more of the secret spots to hit up next time. Let me know when you are ready to go to London!!
