We arrived London in the morning, took Piccadilly line to go directly from Heathrow to St. Pancras, which took approx 1 hour. It was a rather long ride, but was straightforward and cheap (£5 per adult).
Megaro Hotel is just a across the street from St. Pancras station.
We booked one of their 1-room apartment which is in a separate building 2 minutes walk from the hotel. The building does not have elevator but hotel staff could help with the luggages.
After dropping off luggage at the hotel, we headed to Camden Town for the popular fish & chips at Poppies.
We didn’t spend much time exploring Camden Town, which is kind of like the “women’s street” in Hong Kong. Instead we went to see Big Ben and surrounding area. We have pre-booked tickets to enter Westminster Abbey (on the selected day). Beautiful church and if I had to choose only 1 church to visit in London, this is it.Our last stop in the area was the London Eye, about 15mins walk from Westminster Abbey. We have pre-booked tickets to go up at a particular time slot and yet we still had to queue for more than half an hour! (There is a fast track option but we thought it is too expensive.)
View was nice and I imagine it would be even nicer at night but going up once is enough and I wouldn’t recommend it if time is tight either.
