If you’re a baby boomer, no trip to London would be complete without visiting some iconic Beatles locations. During this trip we had to visit Abbey Road Studios, the crosswalk in front of Abbey Road Studios where the Beatles were photographed for the “Abbey Road” album cover, and the building where they played their last concert on the roof for the “Let It Be” album and video.
We also visited other iconic London sites such as Westminster Abbey, The Tower Bridge, and Buckingham Palace.
Getting around London is really easy on the subway or “Tube” as it is known. Also, if you fly into Heathrow I would not pay for transfer to your hotel. The vans or taxis that transport you get bogged down in traffic and take way too long to get you where you need to go.
The subway more than likely has a stop not far from your hotel. Ask your hotel for the name of the nearest subway stop, and take the subway from Heathrow to that stop. It will get you there much faster and much cheaper. That leaves more time to explore London!
We haven’t had a chance to do a day trip to Liverpool yet, so we have that planned for the near future. We toured both Stonehenge and Bath England and both were visited on a single day trip. We also took the night time Jack the Ripper tour. Our tour guide was a noted Jack the Ripper historian and author, and we visited all the pertinent locations after dark. A very spooky time to say the least.
If you have any specific questions regarding London we would be happy to offer you our insight. It might save you valuable time and money.
London is a great place! We are definitely going back soon!
