OXFORD AND WARWICK
Arrived via that British Airways Bird and rode the Heathrow Express into London. Quick cab to King's Cross and checked into....ahhh....the hotel with the worst ever bed in the world (Holiday Inn - Bloomsbury). We grabbed an hour nap on the plane (best sleep now till we hit Paris).
Time to check out the local area. Tube station with great access to everything (check), shopping centre a 1/4 of a block away (check), and then walkies to to the Platform 9 3/4 shop at King's Cross. Crazy!! They take your photo with luggage cart (but the wait is like a 1/2 hour or more) or you can just pop in the shop (crazy busy, packed every hour of every day). Still lots of fun things to buy so we got a couple of pens and I got my photo with a lovely lass inside.
Me with the lovely shop assistant at Station 9 3/4.
