Hear about travel to London England as the Amateur Traveler talks to Amber from americantourguideinlondon.com. In this second part of a two part episode on London we start with talking about some of the logistics like how to save money on flights and transportation. Amber explains how to get from the airport, how to use the Oyster card on the London Underground (the tube).
We also talk about some of our favorite museums in London like the National Portrait Gallery, the British Museum, The Imperial War Museum, Britain At War Museum, Victorian and Albert Museum, Cabinet War Rooms, and the Tower of London.
For day trips from London Amber talks about the Hampton Court Palace, Windsor Castle, Greenwich with the National Maritime Museum and the Observatory, Kew Gardens (including when you can get free tickets), and Wimbleton.
We plan a night out at the theatre. How to get tickets, where to eat dinner and where to go after your play at a relative “affordable” at the Cellar Door or Waxy O’Conner’s bars. Then we also talk about options like the Globe theatre as well as great places for live music in London.
And just when you think there is nothing new to learn about London we talk about kayaking on the Thames, walking the Regents canal, and some of the local markets. We talk about the Big Bus tour and pub walk tours. And even after two episode on London… we cannot cover all that there is to see in this amazing city.

I listen to your podcast all the time. Great job and thank-you.
I think that the Connecticut episode left out an important region which is perhaps the best region. The coast and center of the state are alright if you can tolerate crowds but the northwest part, from Litchfield to the Berkshire Hills, is the best. There is a reason why Meryl Streep, Henry Kissinger and many other celebrities and power brokers live in that area. In fact you could do a whole show on Litchfield County, and include the neighboring counties of Berkshire in Massachusetts, and Dutchess and Columbia in New York. It is amazing what you can see within those four counties. The amount of historical sights, museums, wineries, restaurants and backroads has taken me years to explore. Although I live in Vermont I find myself coming back to that area often.
