After that, we walked to the Soane Museum. This museum was the home of a rich British architect who liked to collect pieces of history. I kinda thought it was weird.
I was done with museums after that, so we decided to head back to the hotel and walk down some of the famous streets of London. We walked through Trafalgar Square, Picadilly Circus, the Theater district, Oxford Street, and Regent Street.
We got back to the hotel, and I immediately took a nap…..a very common occurrence on this trip. After that, it was time to get ready for dinner.
We ate at the Harwood Arms Restaurant. It was…..OK. We wanted to try some traditional English food. This restaurant featured alot of game-type dishes (deer, pheasant, lamb etc). Justin started with pickled ox tongue, and I had butternut squash soup with squid. Both dishes had some interesting flavors. Definitely, different than anything we have ever had. For our entrees, I got lamb neck and Justin got pheasant. Again, they were both just OK.
One thing that we have noticed is that taxis are REALLY expensive. It cost around 70$ to get to and from the restaurant. It was about 15 minutes each way. Overall, we were less than enthused with the entire evening.
But…………we watched it! I fell asleep around 4 am. Unfortunately, I missed the ending.
Who Dat!?! And instead of waking up at 8, we woke up at 12. This was the ONLY time we have ever overslept while we were on vacation. Yep, even in those 12 weeks of travel, we never overslept!
It was worth it.
