December 7th

 

Flew from Columbus to New York. When we got to the ticket counter in New York, we found out that our flight had been cancelled. We were rebooked on another airline, and after running through the airport twice, caught a flight from New York to London.

 

December 8th

 

Landed in London. Our transport didn't realize, we had arrived, but they came to pick us up very quickly, and drove us to our hotel in Notting Hill. After checking in, we walked around the neighborhood a bit and went to the Portobello Road Market for some shopping and lunch.

We went back to the hotel and settled in, and then walked through Kensington Gardens to Kensington Palace.

We joined the Historic Royal Palaces. This gets you into Kensington Palace, Hampton Court Palace, Kew Palace, the Banqueting House, and The Tower of London for one price, and gets you a 10% discount in the restaurant and the gift shop. If you are planning on visiting three of them in your visit, it will cost you the same amount. We enjoyed the exhibits in Kensington Palace, especially the Diana exhibit. We ate dinner/tea at the Orangery.

We walked through the rest of Kensington Garden, out to Kensington High Street, did some shopping, and headed back to the hotel for the evening.
