In London we spent 4-night 5-day trip to close our four-UK capital tour.
The following pictures summarize (should I you summarise to follow British English? 🙂 ) all those days in London except our stadium tour to Stamford Bridge and a day trip to Oxford, Stonehenge and Windsor.
Once we reached London Paddington station we headed to Wisma Siswa Merdeka on 44 Dartmouth Road, Willesden. This is basically an Indonesian Embassy-owned student-managed housing. The two-storey building has four rooms to book with homy feeling, simple breakfast, microwave and kitchen to use and very affordable rate (to say very cheap: 17.5 pounds per person per night). The closest station is Willesden Green (600m).
London is huge; and even though we have 3 days effective on hand we haven’t covered all must-see places. That said, we managed to visit:
Greenwich, Royal Observatory Greenwich
The Tower of London
River Thames Cruise
Green Park and Buckingham Palace
Science Museum, Imperial College of London (unfortunately it was a very long queue in Natural History Museum that we aborted the plan)
Harrods, Karak and Chapati
The Elizabeth Tower and surroundings
Oxford Street, and Leicester Square shopping area and their surroundings
