I arrived early Thursday, took the heathrow express like everyone recommended and got to the hotel as bob was leaving for the day. The hotel is really nice. It's the chesterfield Mayfair, which I found on TripAdvisor (Currently ranked 8th for all the London hotels). It's a boutique hotel with mostly business people. The neighborhood id very nice and upscale. Mike and pit stayed in this area in October.
After breakfast, I sought out directions and walked the few blocks to Green Park and then made my way to buckingham Palace. Changing of the guard was to happen at 11:30
After it ended, I walked down the street from the Palace to Trafalgar Square where I hopped on the hop on hop off bus. I did the entire circuit do I could get my bearing and see as much as I could. The top portion of the bus was partially covered, but it was cold. I saw the eye, Westminster Abbey, Tower of London, St Paul's Cathedral, Tower Bridge, all the top sights! I walked back to the hotel, had a coffee, and planned what to do tomorrow. I am alone tonight for dinner as Bob has a work dinner. He has to work tomorrow too so on my own. Thinking about doing one of the London Walks, maybe the walking tour to Westminster Abbey.
