June 2-3, 2014 Depart San Diego
We departed San Diego at 8:30pm on British Airways bound for London, England. The flight takes approximately ten hours, arriving in London at about 2:45pm the following day. Once we had cleared immigration control and collected our bags we made our way from Heathrow Airport to Victoria Station in downtown London on the Underground. We had to change trains once to reach our destination but the two trains were on the same platform so it was fairly easy.
Our hotel for the next four nights was a Best Western Hotel located a few blocks from Victoria Station. We set out on foot with a map and suitcases in tow, dodging traffic and many pedestrians on the small narrow sidewalks. Our room was small as is common in Europe, but not as small as some rooms we have had. The bathroom was so small that it was not possible to sit on the toilet without your knees hitting the wall in front of the toilet.
After settling into our hotel, we headed to a pub near Victoria Station for a dinner of fish and chips and sausages before going to bed early.
