I was quite excited when Travelodge got in touch with a chance to stay with them. I decided to stay in central London at the Euston Travelodge. Even though I live in Zone 6 I’m always in a rush when I visit London as it’s nice to leave before the rush hour starts. By staying in London for two nights it’s allowed me to take my time when visiting places in London and to also relax and it felt like a little holiday. I packed the day before and headed to London around 3pm to check in. The Euston Travelodge is in walking distance of Kings Cross Station so the area was quite busy with tourists and business people. On arriving and finding our room I felt quite safe being at the Travelodge in a busy area of London. Our bedroom was very clean and spacious.
The room had everything we needed and I wished I could of stayed there longer. Due to being in a busy area I was quite surprised that we didn’t hear a single thing from our room so we got a good nights sleep. We had breakfast in the morning which was handy as food is quite expensive in London. The king size bed was really comfortable and clean and I loved the soft pillows. This was my first time staying in a Travelodge and I think it was perfect for a short break to London. I can’t wait to stay in London again or somewhere else in the country.
Whilst we were in London there was a tube strike so we had to walk everywhere which was a bit tiring. Our Travelodge was a 5 minute walk from Kings Cross Station and we decided to visit the 9 3/4 Harry Potter platform and the gift shop. There was quite a long queue to get your photograph taken with the trolley that’s half disappeared into the wall. The gift shop sold a lot more different things than the gift shop at the Harry Potter Studios but everything was still quite expensive. Kings Cross Station also has a food market every Wednesday, Thursday and Friday 12-7pm. My favourite stall was of course Crosstown Doughnuts, they do such a variety of freshly baked doughnuts I loved their rocky road one.
The Travelodge was also a short walk away from Regents Park. I forgot how big Regents Park is as it took a while to walk right up to London Zoo. There are also a few places to eat in the park along with a lake where you can rent boats out. It was a really hot day on the Friday so it was nice to spend time relaxing in the park.
