After Paris, we were heading to London for a very short trip for 3 days 2 nights. We should have stayed longer, because London is so beautiful and clean.
We took Eurostar train at Gare Du Nord terminal station from Paris to London.
Heard about Channel Tunnel (underwater rail tunnel) of travel between London and Paris, so we decided to try our first experience with Eurostar. It supposed took us around 2hrs to reach London from Paris. But we were very lucky that got stuck underwater due to train technical problem and it took us 4hrs to reach London. It was a terrific experience, anyway, Eurostar later did made compensation to us ^_^.
The best thing travel by train is you are able to see beautiful country side.
Then we reached St Pancras London station
After dropped our bag at the hotel (The Castleton Hotel London), we were starving, stopped by a fast food restaurant for our first meal at London, Fish and Chips, it was not bad at all.
No waste of single minute, we started to explore London ...The weather was chilly at that time, so we slowly walked to Hyde park.
We were there during early Spring (Apr 2014) , so we are able to see beautiful flowers started to bloom. These were beautiful tulips at a small garden nearby the hotel we stayed.
Then we took this Tube / Underground to next destination
Many local food stalls
We stopped by Jamie Oliver's restaurant (Union Jacks UK) for an early dinner, but we have no luck to see him in person.
We were enjoyed food here, pizza was nice with tasty topping, and I especially love the grilled salmon with fresh herbs salad, it was very fresh and good.
After dinner, we continued to explore London at night. We were walked to Waterloo Bridge.
So happy to see London Eye and Big Ben !!
