A couple of weekends ago, hubby and I had a night away at Covent Garden. We stayed at the Travelodge Hotel on Drury Lane.
I really recommend the Travelodge chain of hotels, they represent excellent value for money and if you prebook at least a month in advance, you can get some really good saver deals from £19 to £29 upwards for a room for a night. They have excellent locations all around London as well as the rest of the UK. So you know, I'm purely a satisfied customer, this post isn't a plug for them, LOL!!

It was really surreal to wake up a few times in the night to the chimes of Big Ben!! It wasn't surreal though to hear the bin carts at 6AM, LOL!!
It was an early start back, so after breakfast, we took a walk to the Embankment for a spot of River and People watching.
I waited to see if I could hear Big Ben again from where we were standing, but the traffic was just too loud!!
It was a really lovely to have a night out 'a deux', I think we plan to do it again in the near future!!
