Coast to Coast at Stansted Airport

Coast to Coast Stansted Airport Feb 17 (1)

Friday 10th February 2017

There was no time for breakfast at the Premier Inn so we caught the early coach to Stansted Airport. Once through all the checks, we went in search of somewhere to eat. We found Coast to Coast which was surprisingly competitively priced. Sadly, the waiter managed to drop one of our dishes on the floor. Happily he replaced it!

Eating at the Stansted Premier Inn

Thursday 9th February 2017

Finding somewhere to dine for the evening could have meant a long walk out of the hotel, or using the restaurant in the Stansted Premier Inn. We went for the latter. A good choice. A reasonably priced meal and good quality. No complaints.

I'm not one for splashing out money on expensive hotels so when I needed a room for the night at Stansted before catching a morning flight to Stockholm, the Premier Inn was fine for me. Clean, comfortable and competitive. Staff were polite and helpful. I recommend it.

We headed in to central London for lunch and found the Coach and Horses in Soho. Pleasant enough and the food was reasonable. Service was polite if a little slow.

As far as I know, the Dem Turkish Restaurant opened only a few weeks ago. This was our first visit. The food and service was first class. An excellent meal. Well worth visiting. Watch out for the indoor BBQ.

We left the Science Museum and went in search of lunch. We found Cafe Brindisa on Exhibition Road. Not cheap but good quality. Quite a busy establishment.

Tim Peake's space capsule

Science Museum London Jan 17 (13)

Saturday 28th January 2017

Back in London and a chance to visit the Science Museum. The reason?: to look at the recently unveiled space capsule used by Tim Peake to return to earth after his stay at the International Space Station. Definitely worth a visit. I also took the opportunity to look around some of the other exhibitions, including transport and steam power.
