Our last full day is Sunday – always my favourite day in any city. It’s when the locals relax usually in a park.
We started at Westminster Cathedral at a choral Mass. The Cathedral was packed and the singing was beautiful.
We skipped the invitation to have tea with the congregation in the church hall. We had a lunch date!
I had booked at Tredwells – a restaurant recommended by a friend. It does a Sunday roast for £29.
Tredwells is near Covent Garden and it was great. We had a table looking out over a terrace to the street. For no extra we got a great little drama. The police pulled over a car. Not just any car but a rather bright blue Rolls Royce with a casually dressed man behind the wheel and another man – perhaps his boss? As the driver engaged the policeman in chat the passenger got out threw on his expensive jacket, looked at his Rolex and strolled off! What were we witnessing? I could speculate……
What to do after Church and Sunday roast? Go to the park.
So off to Hyde park to visit Kensington Palace, to see the flowers and words for Diana on the gate. To sit on the green deck chairs and watch the world go by. And believe me there were lots of people of the world here in the park today.
We walked for an hour or so before heading back to the hotel to collect our bags and head to the airport hotel. We have reached the end.
With an early flight, we had the last night at the Premier Inn at Heathrow Terminal 4. What a great find. For £49 it was great. Best airport hotel I’ve stayed in.
Now just the long flight home.
