London/Blackpool/Lake District

Standard

Now that is an Ice Cream!

Amazing times. Megabus is the only way I can do this sort of travel. Much as I want J.C. running things will megabus still exist under his rule?
Highlight of London was Gunpowder at Spitalfields what a find. Highlight of Blackpool was the company, plus the ice cream. Nice curry, but Gunpowder was still fixed in my mind. Highilight of the Lake district? All of it! Amazing scenery, it’s been so long. The best beer I have had since I was running a bar. Jennings served from Wateredge Inn was stunning! Big Thanks to the drivers and lovely hospitality as ever!
Bowness Lake District Fish and Chips really good another great find!
Streetfeast allways delivers, Winerama is a must!
Now that is a pint of beer!

You Doughnut is also a must!
If you get the chance to eat in Shakeshack London, don’t! Its really gone down hill since my first visit, when it opened. Service is OK burger was not amazing. Fries were Cold, second batch given free were warm on top and cold below. I got a free concrete for my troubles, a mc Flurry is as good as possibly better?
YHA Bolsover Road was cool. Dover Street Apartments were excellent, basic clean cheap quiet, very good service. Premier Inn was again really good, don’t bother with the food though.
