London – the world capital! Be smart and make the best transportation choices!

London

Last year, I took the decision to visit the capital of UK, the beautiful London. My English tour included neighboring towns, including Dartford, Slough, Cheshunt and Brentwood. I traveled with ten other friends, so the large group had to split into two and check in at different hotels. The two hotels we stayed at were: Corinthia Hotel (Whitehall Place) and Holiday Inn (275 Old Street). At first, we reserved only a taxi cab for transportation. Then, we realized that we will need more and turned to executive cars to cover all of us.

As we were all children at heart, we could not resist the temptation of visiting Sea Life London Aquarium. We had the time of our lives and took a lot of crazy photographs. We then resumed our roles as adults and visited one of the iconic landmarks of London, meaning Westminster Abbey. This is one impressive piece of architecture and we were more than pleased that we had the chance to see it. We returned to our hotels seeing double, as we were so tired. Luckily for us, there were taxis available. We also selected a wheelchair accessible taxi for one of our friends, who had broken his leg just a week before.

From London to Gatwick airport, we took one of those minibuses. The large vehicle covered the 29 miles distance in 57 minutes and we paid around £196 for the journey. A friend from the group traveled from London to Heathrow airport; he used an airport taxi for the 39 miles journey. He reached the destination in 39 minutes and paid £69 for a saloon car. The rest of us made stops on the road at Tulsi Apart Hotel (256A High Street, Croydon) and at The Kenley Hotel (62 Godstone Road, Kenley). We had our meals at Albert’s Table (49C S End, Croydon) and at Santini’s Restaurant (64 Godstone Road, Kenley).
