We stayed at the Hilton London Olympia, on the Kensington High Street, during our visit to London. The location is perhaps not ideal for travelling to the city centre, but the service was excellent, the beds enormous and it had the distinct benefit of being within walking distance of Frank’s Sandwich Shop, a tiny, non-descript restaurant, all of whose signage had large Coca-Cola logos on it… appearances can be decieving. I had reservations about Frank’s, but Ian convinced me to go in and I was so glad I did; I enjoyed two breakfasts of beans and toast there, a true indulgence for a girl who doesn’t have a toaster, and even spent some time chatting with Frank, the congenial owner, a life-long Londoner who accounts for a great deal of the restaurant’s charm! We had a very early flight, so I kept my outfit casual for our first day in the UK capital, which meant, surprise, surprise, lots of black! It turned out to be the perfect choice for the crazy day we had, which included visiting Piccadilly Circus, Liberty of London, The British Museum and a lovely blogger lunch with one of my favourite Brits, Sherin.
I have lots more London photos to bombard you all with… basically for the rest of the week! Happy Wednesday!
