London and Luxury

I had always wanted to see inside the old Midland Hotel, the grand railway building in St Pancras. It opened as the Renaissance Hotel after years of restoration.

So it was a bit of luck that my old pal JF from Paris, a travel writer, journalist and photographer invited me to share some London luxuries. This place is really beautifully done, the scale is overwhelming.

We made a tour of the place, had a drink in the guest chambers club then headed off to The Shard for dinner. I don't make a habit of this kind of thing - I really should have dressed better for the occasion, but you know how it is when you're cycling.

So I got my champagne towards sunset on the 31st floor at aquashard restaurant. This place is seriously swanky.

We watched the sun go down and the city lights come up over 3 great courses of beautiful food.

This city is impressive, look at St Pauls's from here. As the night fell I understood why this venue is so desirable, the views are breathtaking and the pleasure is enhanced with good food and drink. Must do this more often!
