From Paddington Station I took the Underground to Tottenham Court Road Station and from there I made the five minute walk to the Rathbone Hotel.
It’s a nice place – the rooms are a bit small and the hotel is a bit expensive (not for London as it turns out) but we have a little table and two chairs on a great street in a neighborhood I know Windy is going to love when she gets here tomorrow.
Just a sample of the pubs. Windy was particularly looking forward to pub life and here are four in the traditional style within a block of the hotel. I ate a pretty not-very-good fish and chips lunch at one of these places today but there are many dozens of other restaurants from the world over.
