Visiting UK for the first international trip. Never been to the UK before so everything was pretty awesome and fresh. Went through a good amount of the UK: London, Plymouth, Liverpool, Wallasey. I got to visit some Museums, go to the legendary Ministry of Sound, see Evil Needle and Jarreau Vandal. I have been big fans of these guys so it was serendipity.
I got in after my flight at around 7pm, hopped on the train with everything and made my way to my hostel (I wanted to experience the hostel life lol). Got taxi'd to where the street ended and had to figure my way out from here, walked down some spoopy (but pretty) forest paths.
Visited the design museum in London, this was close to where I stayed.
After London, went to the Port City of Plymouth.
Then went to Liverpool via Eurorail through Grand Central
Went back to London, visited Camden Locke at night to see Jarreau Vandal and Evil Needle.
I don't have any good pictures here because it was dark, I was drunk, but I had a lot of fun!
Visited the Science Museum
Went to the Ministry of Sound for the Do Not Sleep.
Co-worker back at home recommended to check out the Winston Churchill War Rooms. These underground rooms were where operations were held while Germany was bombing London.
I didn't take too many pictures but it was a great tour experience. Theres a machine that you just put to your ear when you find an exhibit and it narrates/guides for you. Learned quite a bit about Winston Churchill, (he painted) and he is amongst a great hero figure of mine. I think what the tour really well is that I experience almost how it was day to day.
Checked out this pretty cool tavern/pub The Red Lion
Checked out the National Gallery of Art
Went to the Victoria and Albert Museum
Checked out the Natural History Museum
The dinosaur exhibit was pretty cool, really loved dinosaurs growing up
I wish I had the energy to visit Camden Locke on the weekend during the day because it's super fun there.
My favorite stay here was Harrod's Room. The price was right, bed was comfty, room was clean and the host was awesome. The location is perfect too, its a walk away from Harrods so its on the main road of action on Brompton Road.
