Caitriona's weekend break to London


- Flew to London Gatwick with Ryanair. Worth taking the standard plus fare if there is not much difference in price as bags, priority boarding and seating from row 6 are included.

-Took Gatwick Express from Gatwick Airport to London Victoria Station. £20 each way.Very convenient way of reaching central London. Operates every 20 mins
-Stayed at 3* St Giles Hotel. Brilliant location. 5 mins walk to Oxford Street, 5 mins walk to Tottenham Court tube station, within 10-15 mins walk from most West End theatres and 15 mins walk to Trafalgar Square
-Rooms are very small. Breakfast has a good variety of hot and cold options so it is worth
including it.
-24 hour diner at hotel with all types of food options from all day breakfast, burgers, pastas, desserts etc
-Food can be expensive but many restaurants in the area do pre-theatre menus from 5pm to 7pm. 2 courses for £10-£12 per person
