Strada

Restaurant | "Going to Strada"

Strada Photo, London, England
Quote:
The restaurant is not located to far from the Embankment station and it took us around three minutes walking to get to the restaurant. When you arrive at the restaurant the first thing you will notice is the great seating area. The restaurant has a outdoor seating with a great view. When the weather doesn’t allow it to sit outside you can sit inside ofcourse.We had really good service with staff that really wants too help you and don’t look too desperate to get a tip. Although they pass the table a few times during the night, it’s just enough for when you want to order another drink and they check if everything is ok. I like this kind of service. It’s not too much but it’s not like you hav...Read More

When we were in Germany in the city of Dresden we really wanted to go for dinner and have the thing were Germany is famous for.. schnitzels! Of course we had to have them when we were here. In Dresden you have many restaurant who serve schnitzels so it wasn’t really that difficult to find a good one. We opted for the one closes to our hotel so we didn’t had to walk far back since it was pretty cold when we were here.The restaurant is right near the river and when you have a table right near the window, you have a pretty good view. The river is beautifully light up as well as the street and is a beautiful area to walk around at night. For people in a wheelchair the restaurant is accessible ...Read More

Campanile Dartford Hotel

Hotel | "Campanile Dartford Se London "

Campanile Dartford Hotel Photo, Dartford, England

Campanile Dartford Se LondonThe hotel seemed ideal because it is located right near the A206 motorway. Unfortunately it was quiet difficult to find the hotel but that was mostly due our navigation system. According to the man of the reception he heard this so often and unfortunately it took us half an hour to finally arrive at the hotel. A plus is that the hotel has a private parking (free) and far enough from the highway, so it will not bother you.The hotel receptionBefore the car park you must first ringing the intercom. Then you can park and walk inside the hotel. Here you will find reception, elevator, bar and restaurant area. It looks solid, but a bit dated. It...Read More

Museum on the Mound

Attraction

Museum on the Mound Photo, Edinburgh, Scotland
Quote:
The Museum On The Mound is located in the heart of the city of Edinburgh. The museum is all about the history of money. Not only about collecting coins but also from crime and making the money. It’s not a large museum and the best thing is that there is no admission. Perfect for an afternoon and since you don’t have to pay there is no harm in visiting.When you get in you first pass the information desk were you can get a floor plan and some other information. The floor plan describes in detail what you can find in the museum. The museum is what you can expect from most museums. Most items are behind glass and each item has a description of what it is and where it comes from. You can find i...Read More

Edinburgh Zoo

Best Of IgoUgo

Attraction | "Going to the Zoo in Edinburgh"

Quote:
Edinburgh Zoo is almost a must when you visit the city, at least if you like animals of course. When driving towards the Zoo you can see the zoo well signposted ahead. When you arrive there is a large car park with lots sufficient spaces to park. We were here on a Saturday and although it looked busy inside but outside was more than enough parking. Public transport access is good.On entry you can see the prices and as expected it’s not cheap. As an adult you pay 15,50 pounds and for children from the age of 3 you have to pay 11 pounds. Quite expensive if you are going with a whole family. We were with the two of us and lost 31 pounds. There are discount tickets available.When y...Read More

Museum of London Docklands

Attraction | "A great museum to visit"

Museum of London Docklands Photo, London, England
Quote:
The Museum of Docklands is located in the city of London. It's not one of the main attractions of Londen and that's mainly due it's not located in the city centre. The museum is worth visiting, as we thought when we looked at their website. We were in London just for a couple of days and since we have been there before we wanted to visit some other attractions then the main ones like Big Ben.The museum is best reached by the tube but also by boat, bus and even by car. When you come with car there is plenty of paid parking available. Since we went with the tube i can't really comment on how expensive the parking was. With the tube the museum is very easy to reach. You need to get off at the...Read More

London is a great international city with millions of people living here. Most people come from other countries and that gives the city a real international feeling. You can really tell by just walking around and feeling the great atmosphere. You see a lot of different shops, restaurant and bars. It’s truly a great city.The restaurant is located in a street right next to the square with a beautifull fountain in the middle. Unfortenately for people with walking difficutlies, the restaurant is difficult to reach by car, so you have to walk to get to the restaurant. Parking can be found around 10 minutes walking from the restaurant but ofcourse since you are in London, it’s quiet expensive. P...Read More
