Thank you all. We're staying at the Trafalgar St. James. Claudia, as always, you got it right: This is for the experience. We'll only be using a black cab twice during our two-week stay in London & Scotland. Once from Heathrow - yes, for Darling Companion, who has never been to the UK, to experience; and once over to The Globe for supper and a play. The rest, in London, we walk and take the tube, including to the Tower.
We're an older couple, and the London itinerary this time around is based upon companion's love of Churchill.When I took our adult kids in 2016, we did a couple of black cabs and they loved the experience.
Then a train to Chartwell and a western train from London to Edinburgh five days later. We're flying open jaw and renting an automatic for our Highland and Isle adventures:) (All of these are reserved.)
Leaving in six days!
