Highs & Lows

Last minute seats at the Pizza Express Jazz Club in Soho, for the Scott Hamilton Quartet.

Didn’t plan the trip with enough time and tickets for most shows and events we wanted to attend to were not available.

Q & A

  • What would you have changed?

    I would have bought tickets earlier for the Warner Brother Studio Tour and probably I would have packed another jacket.

  • Anything go wrong during the trip?

    Yes, a silly mistake. We went to The Globe to buy tickets for a play and didn’t notice they had booked us for a week later -when we wouldn’t be there anymore- than we had asked until the night of the play.

  • How was the food?

    There was a bit of everything in the trip, but my favorite was the street food in London, or Asian food restaurants.

  • What tips would you give a friend?

    Give yourself enough time to visit London and all the great places near before moving to another city.

  • Packing tips?

    If you’re travelling during winter, definitely pack warm clothes, maybe some thermal underwear and look for a scarf or light fabric to cover your face from the wind to prevent it from getting burned. Aside from that, just make sure you have comfortable shoes.

  • Transportation Tips?

    I am a fan of walking, so mainly that. In London use the tube and in Cambridge its nice to rent a bicycle for a while.

  • Booking details?

    I make most of my reservations on Expedia or directly on the hotel websites.
