London is life ?

Can’t help it, London is in my life blood! On a recent mad dash over the pond to see my family (and freeze because said blood is much thinner after decades in Florida!), I picked up a charming little book of quotes such as this from Samuel Johnson. I’ve left it on the table for you to enjoy when you come stay with us.

You’re welcome 🙂

As we enter our 21st year of business, I can’t help think about the number of guests we’ve helped plan their trip to Britain during that time. I once called it my “complimentary consultancy” over breakfast coffee. Thom often referred to it as “Tracey’s bossy tourism advice” – he may not be too far from the truth, LOL.

Because for many Americans, England is often their very first travel destination once they get their first passport. Thom, much to my annoyance, usually tells them to get themselves straight up to Scotland.

While he loves London, the hometown of his innkeeper wife, (he’d better!) he prefers the wide open spaces of Scotland. With it’s dramatic highlands, and miles of heather and gorse, it’s got a slower pace of life than England’s capital city, that rivals New York City for population and diversity.  Scotland has its own capital city, Edinburgh, that he loves. The castle, atop a dormant volcano and shadowing Arthur’s Seat appears right in the center of Princes Street where it can be seen while you’re just wandering around buying touristy souvenirs, and drinking copious cups of tea to ward off the chilly Scottish weather.

While it’s eye-wateringly expensive to live in London (like New York City), there’s plenty to see and do, on a day trip in from the suburbs where my family now reside.  The West End theaters are the best in the world – yes, even better than Broadway. And the museums! The British Museum takes days to get around it, the Tate, the National Portrait Gallery. The parks, Hyde Park (many a childhood memory of boating on the Serpentine), St. James, Kensington – lots of green space to be found amongst the tall buildings and the historic homes.  Did I mention the shopping and the fine restaurants?

When the guests that I”m bossing around as I help them plan their trip refer to that post World War Two rumour that the food is awful, I tell them we’ve moved on in the last 79 years. London restaurants are some of the best in the world for quality, diversity and scrumptiousness. Don’t take my word for it, hit up Auntie Google, she’ll confirm it all.

Come stay at the Little English Guesthouse and let’s talk about all things London!
