Haymarket Hotel, London
I think I'm coming to the end of telling you all about my trip to London. In the evening of the day I arrived (!) Libby decided to drag a somewhat jetlagged moi to have a cocktail (or was it two!) at the Haymarket Hotel - slap bang in the middle of Piccadilly. I was so pleased she did too!
