We left the Hilton Croydon on Monday morning and headed straight to the lounge at Gatwick. I got full value from the lounge and was ever so slightly pissed by the time I got on the plane.
Had a stroll into town on Monday evening and early dinner at Messrs. Maguire. Had a burger. Not too bad but pretty expensive.
Tuesday we borrowed a bike from the hotel and tried to find some geocaches. We found four or five (and couldnt find at least 2). The search took us to some nice places including the hidden garden near the library (see photo).
Ate at 101 Talbot. Very nice and worth a visit. http://www.101talbot.com/
Thursday morning a visit to a cafe for breakfast followed by the writers museum (not very interesting really). A late and very good lunch at the very filling Gallagher's Boxty House, a strolled around town for some tourist tat then back to the airport.
