DAY 1: Arrival

Earl's Court Tube Stop
Earl's Court Tube Entrance

We arrived at Gatwick on a Thursday morning. We rode the express Connex train from Gatwick to London's Victoria Station. The Connex train was cheaper than the Gatwick express and only took 3 extra minutes (however the trains were dirtier and more crowded).  We had our pictures made at a photo booth at Victoria, so that we were able to purchase a 7 day London Transport Travel Card. With this accomplished we took our first Underground ride on a District Line train to Earl's Court Station. Walked then about 2 blocks to our hotel.

Albany Hotel

The Albany Hotel

The Albany Hotel was slightly run down, but we had 4 twin beds in a rather large side room with a water closet and tub/shower. After taxes we paid less than $600 for 5 nights, a pretty good deal for this pricey city especially with 4 adults! The other great part is being in Earl's Court we had a choice the District and Piccadilly underground lines. There were also several restaurants to choose from. Earl's Court is better known as Kangaroo alley for all the Aussie's that stay there, but we found it to be a great place to stay, and would choose this neighborhood again.

Our first night there we went to Harrods before it closed. We then ate at an inexpensive breakfast shop at Earl's Court. We were pretty tired and wanted just to eat and go to bed.
