Oxo Tower Valentine's Dinner

For Valentine's day we decided to have a weekend out in London. To start we had dinner at the Harvey Nichols Oxo Tower Brasserie on the south bank in London. The picture is taken on one of the balconies overlooking the Thames and St. Pauls Cathedral in London.

We had an early dinner so we could watch the sunset from the 8th floor where the restaurant is situated. Luckily that evening there wasn't any cloud cover so we had a spectacular view of the sunset over the capital. Dinner was great with excellent food and service but the best was the view. Having a birds eye view of all the tourist spots that make London is fantastic. The Brasserie now gets a recommendation from us.

After staying the night on high street Kensington we took the bus in to town driving past Kensington Palace, Hyde Park through Piccadilly Circus getting off in Leicester Square to hit the half price ticket booth hoping to get some theatre tickets. Unfortunately all of the shows were dark so there weren't any tickets to be had.

After touring central London a bit more we headed home. A great Valentine's Day 2008.
