So in Early November 2015, I started having my ‘away days’ as I like to call them, and this was the first.
Planning them at least 3 months ahead to get the best rail fares and hotel deals. This one was slightly different – I set myself a maximum budget of £125.00 which had to include the rail fares AND the hotel!
I went on a Tuesday and came back on the Wednesday. A reasonably early start and I was at the Natural History Museum by about 2:00pm and I spent the afternoon there.
I stayed at a supposed 3* hotel in Earls Court, I would mention the name but I’ve forgotten it. Boy was it bad. The only thing that was any good at all was the shower so at least I didn’t smell!
It was about 30mins to the Museums from the hotel and following breakfast (not in the hotel!) I walked up to the Science Museum. Fascinating place, you can even experience (safely!) an earthquake. I then crossed the road to the V&A Museum and spent a really interesting few hours in there before heading back to the NHM for the rest of the afternoon.
I headed back to the station before it got too busy and had a wander around Paddington and a meal before catching my train home. A very busy couple of days but really enjoyable – I promised myself I would come back one day and visit the British Museum!
