|It has the making of a Rick Steve’s chapter in his book on Great Britain. How many attractions can you possibly see in a large European city in 3 days? Kaitey and I found out when we stopped in London, our first city in a 3 country tour of Europe. We arrived in London at Noon on August 2nd, experienced the Tube for the first time from Heathrow to our hotel on the River Thames and checked into the Park Plaza Riverfront (a new and very nice/modern hotel). By the time we got settled into our first of many hotel rooms, we were hungry, thirsty, and ready to start our London Tour.|
So what can you really see in such a little time in London? A lot we soon found out! It just depends on the amount of time you want to put into all of the choices. We started our first evening at a little Italian Restaurant near our hotel called The Vineyard. Three hours, two bottles of Chianti, and two pasta dishes later we stumbled outside to explore the night life of London. What caught our eye, however, wasn’t a roaring night life but the London Eye.
