London, United Kingdom 2012 Part 1

Feeling “Londoner” for a week!

Day 1
Arrived London Heathrow aboard Virgin Atlantic, checked in at Palmers Lodge Swiss Cottage then rode the London Eye at night.

Palmers Lodge Swiss Cottage a laid-back hostel in a restored Victorian-era building is a 4-minute walk from Swiss Cottage tube station.

With a friend, we spent 7 days at Swiss Cottage to begin our London adventure. This was my first experience at a hostel and I really had an amazing stay here. We booked a room and it was very clean, spacious, quiet and it is located near the tube, you can easily get to the city center very quickly. The staff was accommodating, kind and courteous too!
