London to Copenhagen

Our flight from London Gatwick to Copenhagen left at 7:30 pm. So we checked out of our hotel at noon and stored our bags at the hotel. Then we walked to the British Library.

They have an amazing collection of books and documents. Everything from a Gutenberg Bible to a Shakespeare first folio to John Lennon’s lyrics for Hard Days Night written on the back of a birthday card. Not to mention they have the Magna Carta! And it’s a beautiful building.

The Football cup finals were at Wembley Stadium today. It was Newcastle United against Manchester United. Everywhere we went we saw Newcastle fans. I guess Manchester fans celebrate in another part of London. Most of the pubs were packed inside and out.

Newcastle fans. Notice the sign says no Manchester colours allowed!

We went back to the pub we ate at the first night. They had rugby on and weren’t going to be showing the football because they didn’t have Sky TV. We had a Camembert and prosciutto sandwich and sea bass chowder before heading back to our hotel.

We went back to the hotel, collected our bags and took a taxi to the station where we caught a train to Gatwick airport.

Our electric taxi. It even had a card reader in back for paying.

We arrived in Copenhagen at about 10 pm. We are staying at the Clarian Hotel at the airport. It was great to just walk straight from our plane to our hotel.
