After a superb day in London on the Theatre, we had a full day forward of us within the Metropolis and the climate was wonderful!
We had determined that we’d go for a day of tradition and the British Museum was on the playing cards. To begin with we would have liked to pack and prepare to exit.
The resort included breakfast which was a bit attention-grabbing, nonetheless 0830 arrived and the room bell rang. Exterior the door was a basket with brioche, heat rolls, yoghurt, a number of jams and honey and bottles of apple and orange juice.
We tucked in after which dressed prepared for our subsequent journey. We walked right down to the tube and popped alongside to Carnaby Avenue as in accordance with Time Out journal, there was a meals competition on.
Arriving at Oxford Circus we wandered previous Libertys, down into Carnaby Avenue. Not one of the outlets have been open but, however then there was no signal of the competition both. We mooched round and had a have a look at varied outlets earlier than making a call to move on to the British Museum.
It was now round 11am and it solely took a couple of minutes to get to Holborn. Strolling by way of the sunny streets we received to a really busy Museum inside 5 minutes. And the queue was Mahoosive!
We walked by way of the gates into the primary queue and a uniformed man came to visit to us. I went right into a mini panic earlier than realising that he was there to usher us by way of the barrier straight into the museum with out queuing up! BONUS!
Spending a very good couple of hours wandering across the lofty halls, historic artifacts and loving all the things I used to be .
Finally my leg was simply too painful and we determined to go and have a drink exterior earlier than deciding what to do. Sitting at an enormous desk I used to be capable of put my leg as much as relaxation while H received the drinks.
After 1 / 4 of an hour chilling we had a chat about what we needed to do. Because it was lunchtime, H was getting just a little hangry.
We had already mentioned consuming at a Nicholsons pub as I had many a very good meal there. The closest was the Flying Horse on the nook of Tottenham Court docket Street; a comparatively straight 5 minute stroll.
Arriving there, we ordered a drink and requested for a menu. This was once we discovered they solely served sandwiches. Not what we have been ideally in search of.
I knew there was one other Nicholsons Pub a brief stroll alongside Oxford Avenue. I directed us there and shortly sufficient we have been at The Argyll Arms, a stones throw from Oxford Circus.
It was fairly packed however that they had a separate eating room upstairs. It took me a short time to stand up there however it was actually price it. An quaint consuming home could be the way in which I might describe it. The menu was nice too and I used to be torn between a few dishes.
Ultimately each H and I plumped for the Sunday Roast.
Beef, Yorkshire, all of the trimmings. It was blooming good-looking. We paired the meals up with wine and gin and chilled out collectively.
Lunch was superb and we had a pair extra drinks and H puzzled about dessert. I used to be stuffed so declined, however she went for the trio of mini desserts; Profiteroles, Chocolate Brownie and Lemon Meringue pie. It regarded gorgeous and from what H mentioned, it actually was!
Finally I had a small piece of one of many profiteroles and he or she was proper, completely scrumptious.
All too quickly it was time to return to the resort and accumulate our baggage. We received again on the tube to St Pancras and had about 40 minutes to spare. We determined to finish the weekend away with some prosecco from Marks and Spencers for the journey residence.
