On August 14, 1997, we commemorated our 15th wedding anniversary by arriving atLondon Heathrow at 8:30am. It was our third trip to London, so we knew what neededto be done first — validate our London Visitors Travelcard to allow us to travelthe Underground into London.

We stayed in a very nice small hotel near Hyde Park and Harrod's. Knightsbridge Green Hotel is a small family owned and managed hotel, conveniently located near the Knightsbridge underground station.

This was our second stay there, and we were not disappointed. It's a moderately priced hotel that we found in Hilary Rubinstein's Europe's Wonderful Little Hotels and Inns.

(We also found Minmore House, in Scotland, in her book.)

In addition to stopping in every Waterstone's, Dillon's and W.H. Smith's bookshopswe passed, we traded at The Talking Bookshop near Oxford Circus and Books, etc. nearCovent Garden.
