Our first day started with departing San Francisco and landing in Heathrow Airport just outside of London proper We took the Heathrow express to St.Pancras Station which took approximately 20 minutes. We checked in to St. James Hotel and Club in Mayfair. The rest of the evening was spent stopping at local pubs around the Mayfair area.
Day 2: This morning we decided to walk from Mayfair to Buckingham palace and exploring the outskirts of the palace garden and park. After doing so, we walked to Big Ben and grabbed a coffee outside a stand. The weather was brisk but still sunny. A 5 minute walk nearby Big Ben to the "tube" took us on a 10 minute ride to the outskirts of Burough market. Once we walked to the market, we were met with numerous food options. I reccomend the raclette cheese covered potatoes. After the market we spent the rest of the day walking the river Thames and enjoying a few beers along the way. Our final stop of the day was the 'Tate Modern' museum-highly reccomend for both modern and abstract art.
Day 3: Once again, we walked to our final destinations of the trip which was the Tower of London. We took a tour with a beefeater who was able to give us a proper explanation of the historical site. This tour was insightful and also highly reccomended. After doing so, we took a a quick walk to a local pub where we enjoyed fish and chips.
