11th to 13th March
Drove up to London and parked at Tower Bridge, we then walked to the hotel, which was the Tower of London Hilton with the amazing rooftop sky lounge. We had a light lunch in Leadenhall Market right in the heart of the City. In the evening we took a taxi over to Roux@Parliament Square, after champagne we had an amazing 10 course taster meal, with a few glasses of matched wine! What a privilege to eat at this restaurant, top class food & service. Not biased but my favourite course was the sea bass (prepared by Tom), oh and the pig, oh and don’t forget the chocolate dessert!
We went for a stroll via the Tower of London then over to the Monument (The Great Fire), up the 311 steps to the top to enjoy the view! Coffee followed at the Hydrant courtesy of Sarah. More meandering before hooking up with Tom.
In the evening we took another taxi (courtesy of Uber) to the Dominion Theatre to see World of the Worlds, which was epic, the music was spine tingling. Finished the evening off with Prossecco at the sky lounge.
Checked out, walked over to the Shard where we had coffee on the 32nd floor, slightly awkward as I had to go back to the car for my smart shoes as I wasn’t smart enough! Drove home via Richmond Park where we stopped for a quick late lunch by the river.
