Tips on London! (based on this vlog)
1. Pick a good hotel room suited to your needs
We stayed at Prince's Square Apartments in Bayswater. It's not smack bang in the middle of Central London but it was close enough by train! The room itself was a huge studio including a basic kitchen and lounge area! This was probably the second roomiest hotel we stayed in during the trip. I loved how you can make breakfast or dinner if you didn't feel like eating out! and there are so many convenience stores walking distance from the hotel. I also liked how there were two stations close to the hotel, Bayswater and Queensway. Queensway was on the red line, and took you directly to central london! Definitely recommend this hotel if you want to be away from the hustle and bustle from Central London and be close to the leafy greens of Kensington Park.
2. Do a bike tour on your first day
As per Paris, we went on a bike tour with BrakeAway Bike Tours ! We both really enjoyed it and was a great way to see the city in a small amount of time and gave you an opportunity to visit the places that you enjoyed. We did the Grand London Tour and it pretty much took us al over the city to the major sight seeing spots along with some informative tour guides!
3. London Eye - is it worth it?
Yes! Buy a ticket in advance and you can skip the long lines. Go at sunset or dusk and London looks just magical! It's a 30 minute ride, there's seating and great photo opportunities. Plus its one huge ferris wheel and who doesn't love ferris wheels?
If you've been to London, what did you get upto on your first couple of days? Where do you recommend to stay?
