We had such a good weekend. We both left work a bit early and met at the hotel, The Langham at the top of Regent’s Street. We settled into our room and then walked to Leicester Square and went out for dinner. We actually went to the Chinese restaurant we ate at the first night we went out (aw, how sweet…). Then we slowly made out way back to the hotel.
On Saturday we got up quite late and had a very nice breakfast in the hotel and then headed to Borough Market. Neither of us had ever been there before and that was good (if you like food, which we do) but was very busy. Then we went to Covent Garden and the London Transport Museum, which we both really enjoyed. We did have some minor excitement while we were there in that a man passed out right in front of me. A first aider came along after a couple of minutes and dealt with him though, so that was fine and he seemed ok. The museum was really interesting and I am glad that we finally got to go there.
In the evening, my mum and sister came to the hotel and we had dinner in the restaurant (that link has music by the way). We had cocktails before dinner and then champagne with the meal (it was a very decadent weekend! Not that I drank the champagne…) and the meal was delicious. I don’t think we would have felt we had made the most of staying at that hotel had we not eaten in the restaurant, and it was also really nice to have nowhere to travel after the meal was over.
Whilst the stay at the hotel was free, we did manage to spend an awful lot of money – and now want to spend more decadent weekends in London, but will have to find some good deals to be able to afford it. It was a great weekend and we both really enjoyed it and we have already started to look about to see if we can do something similar next year some time.
