The thing I love most about London is the buildings. The traditional architectural styles of the Victorian, Edwardian and Elizabethan eras are exquisite and timeless in my book. I could spend all day looking at these buildings and taking in the intricate carving and sculpting of their façades and appreciating their historical significance. The tour was therefore a particular treat for me which we took via the Red route of The Original Tour (London Sightseeing) Company. London is a city I would recommend anyone visit for is architectural heritage, multi-cultural mix and wonderful sights.
Aside from the river cruise and buildings which I loved! The best part of the day was having tea at The Grosvenor, Victoria which my Dad treated us to at the end of the day. You know how you pass posh hotels but never go in because you know that their price list is over exaggerated and you cant justify forking out to dine or have drinks there? (Don't get me wrong I don't mean up market bistro's or classy lounges, no they are totally within reach, I mean seriously upmarket as in the Grosvenor and Dorchester level of upmarket!). Anyway, we get back to Victoria at the end of the tour and river cruise and my dad says he will treat us to afternoon tea. We are like great! And then he says in there (there pointing to The Grosvenor! To which I was like yep! I'm in!) The Grosvenor is A.M.A.Z.I.N.G! Luxury that should be illegal and ambiance that is second to none, a real treat indeed!
