What happened when Mr Fletche and I escaped to the big smoke for the weekend? Did we get to do all those things on our Alternative London To-Do List? Spoiler Alert: we ticked 9/10 off the list 😀
We stayed in this AirB&B out in East London so all of our journeys started from here. Our nearest tube station (Mile End) was on the Central, District, and Hammersmith & City Lines; and we were five minutes away from the No 8 bus route, which took us all the way to Tottenham Court Road in Central London.
So there you have it. London is exhausting. Even with a fully loaded Oyster card burning in our pockets we managed to walk a mammoth 31 miles – that’s 50km! – in 72 hours. But apart from climbing the Monument we did everything we set out to do!
So what should we do next time… an alternative alternative? Let me know your suggestions and recommendations!
I’m Emmalene, a 40 something with a passion for travel, theatre, food, drink and the occasional accidental hike! I’m a born-and-bred Birmingham native so expect lots of Brum content on here too…
