Our hotel was relatively near Hyde Park, so we took the underground to get there. Unfortunately, we went the wrong direction at first, and it took about 15 minutes longer to get there than it should have. By the time we got to the correct stop, it was already pretty late. I had done enough research that I thought it was only going to be about a 4 mile run all the way around the perimeter.
We started near the Albert Memorial, and headed west. We were able to see Kensington Gardens (which looked pretty neat!) and then continued on. I was watching the clock, we had told Lisa that we would be back by 8, and it was already almost 8, so we decided to take the underground back. But then we couldn't figure out how to get there. We saw a sign that said Pedestrian Subway - but apparently that just means a tunnel for people to walk under the street?
First stop was Kings Cross & Platform 9 3/4. On our way there we saw a cupcake stand calling our names.
