Was chatting on the phone to my mum last night. She still lives down in Kent and might not be able to get more than Good Friday and Bank Holiday Monday off over Easter. So it wouldn’t be worth her while coming all the way up to Leeds. Furthermore, there are logistical reasons why I can’t stay at hers. So we’re thinking of maybe meeting each other (sort of) halfway and having a long weekend in London. See the sights, maybe take in a show.
Of course, as this is Easter, chances of getting decent accommodation in London for a reasonable price (i.e. less than £50 per person per night) are slim, but if anybody has any suggestions of nice places to stay then they’d be very welcome. Central is obviously best, but with the Tube it’s not vital. Also, if anyone has any nice eateries they could recommend – clearly there’s going to be no shortage in London, but the sheer overwhelming number makes the choice harder. Plus my mum is a vegan and doesn’t eat wheat-based products, so that needs to be considered as well.
