After a very nice breakfast, we left the castle this morning (in sunshine) for the short drive to Aerospace Bristol.

They had lots of interesting exhibits, from both world wars, and also lots of modern things as well. But we came to see the Concorde - wow - the last actual Concorde that flew is in a hanger, and you get to walk round it, under it and inside. Very cool! Lots of people (standing guard) who are happy to talk about it as well.

The we headed for London, via Oxford (because we haven't done enough random driving). Had to drijve through the streets of central London (including Picadilly Circus) to find our unit in Covent Garden (not the original one we booked, it had plumbing problems, but a substitute they arranged for us). Very convenient location (if you are not driving!).

Maurice had to go meet some legal people for drinks/dinner so Kate and I walked to the TKTS booth in Leicester Square to get tickets for 42nd Street on Friday night. Then back to the unit via Pret (yayy) for dinner.
