Our first trip this year took us to London – in February. It was pretty cold. Our first stop was Kingsbury Water Park near Birmingham, followed by Moreton-in-Marsh in the Cotswolds.
Not much tourist activity on this trip, although we finally got to the tower, on a miserable grey day. The hiighlight was the Beefeater guided tour. Our Beefeater was ex-Navy, a jovial chap and highly entertaining. The group following us got an ex-Army, who took his role-play seriously – half the group looked terrified. The crown jewels were suitably impressive but also somewhat depressing, having seen the puny-in-comparison Scottish crown jewels a few years ago.
Visited Greenwich on one of the better days:
Returned home on 9 March via a couple of nights at Chapel Lane.
