London-A Night in Covent Garden

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!!

I only remembered to take photos as we were leaving, which explains why there aren't many!!

The photo above is the view to the Royal Opera House

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!!

Sounds like you had a lovely time! And thanks for sharing that hotel chain- Cath and I always bemoan visiting London because of the price of hotel, but it's our favorite city ;)

i love your outfit on the last 2 pics. was it soooo cold there?? because here & now people can only stay in their house. We got 35-40 degrees:(

Winnie said...

Oh this sounds lovely. I love walking along the river...I spent most of last weekend over on the opposite side to you on the south bank! So lovely at night!

Thanks for the heads up about travel lodge. Even though I tend to stay with friends when down in London, I want to take my little sister one of these days and a hotel may be better for her rather than staying with studenty 20 somethings!
