Notting Hill 1.5mill to buy 1700pw to rent

We try to get in early to the see the changing of the guards at Buckingham Palace (Christopher Robin went down with Alice). We are a little late so don’t get a really good position. Was thinking of coming back tomorrow but by the end thought I had seen enough to keep me going.

We then joined a HO/HO bus and have a fairly comprehensive tour seeing all the sights – Parliament House etc. The trip also included a boat trip down the Thames to Greenwich – quite interesting and a great commentary from one of the crew – for tips.

At the end of the afternoon we made our way to Notting Hill to meet Tara at the Windsor Castle Hotel. Super organised I left all the details at home so had to find a dingy internet café to confirm the details. Had a lovely night with her and her brother and friends. Tara was on our Moroccan Tour.

We leave at 10.30pm – drizzling slightly. Subway back to one station, transfer to another to take us to London Bridge Station, a train to East Croydon and then a final train to Horley before we retrieve Pierre and make it back to our hotel by 1.15am. Great day though.
