The city was abuzz with obvious excitement as host of the 2012 Summer Olympic games. Shop windows and bustling city streets were all adorned and poised to welcome visitors from the world over.
We stayed at Belgraves Hotel located on a quiet block in London’s charming Belgravia neighborhood, with Sloane Square and Knightsbridge just a short walk away. We adored the boutique hotel’s relaxed air and undeniably cool decor, and would not hesitate to return on our next visit to London.
In typical London fashion, gray skies and drizzle accompanied our stay, but there was so much to do we barely noticed. I was thankful, however, that I packed a trench coat.
As in any major city, the streets can become overly crowded with oglers and shoppers, making it nearly impossible to walk through. Do you spy the Tower Bridge decorated with Olympic spirit? Stay tuned for more on our trip next week. Have a lovely weekend!
