Buckingham palace, waiting for changing of the guard.
The famous changing of the guard are always bringing large crowd. Be there 45 minutes earlier to get good spot before it starts at 11.30am

London is running a promotion of Pay 1 for 2 for many attractions if you have train tickets travelling to/from London. We happened to be eligible as we were travelling by train from Ascot to London and I have printed the vouchers before coming in to London. We only pay 1 for 2 to enter this museum
I am travelling with a friend and we’re looking for a hotel on a good location, clean and budget friendly. This hotel fits in nicely and we were happy with our choice 🙂 It is very close with Victoria train, coach and underground station, we can easily drag our heavy suitcases from hotel to train station. We arrived by train from Ascot and leave london by train to Gatwick airport. We can walk from hotel to Buckingham palace and start our sightseeing from there.
The hotel gives fruits in the basket which is nice. We bring them when we go every morning.
The owners are also nice and friendly people. I asked for room on ground floor because we need to leave early morning on our last day and we don’t want to carry our suitcases thru the stairs.
Room and bathroom is small but we have been expecting that, London is an expensive city, so no issue. The 2 of us can still juggle with our suitcases. Our room actually is a triple room, but I dont recommend 3 people to stay because there won’t be enough space for 3 suitcases.
The sink in the bathroom is small so I wash my face in the shower. The sink is only good for brushing your teeth.
I shall return to this hotel if I come back to London. The location is perfect 🙂
The only downside is the hotel doesnt have lift. But I saw the hotel staff is helping people carry their stuff to and from their room.
