Piccadilly line to Cockfosters. Everyday on the tube we hear this. Today we went to Wrens Cathedral. No charge because of Sunday but we didn't see as much. We walked across the Millenium bridge and had lunch beside the river. Crossed back over and found the tube station closed for renovation. Turned out the whole line was closed for the day but no one working for the tube seemed to know. Went to queensway station to go to KensingtonPalace but it was pouring buckets by then. Tried to go to Kensington High Street by tube but the station was closed. Rain slowed down and we caught a bus going the wrong direction. Got turned around and finally found the Palace - under renovation. Because they had to close and block off the windows because of the dust of renovation they turned it into a fairy tale find the princesses. Ok but I would rather see the real rooms. We had fun exploring and by the time we were done the rain had stopped. We had dinner at the Bloom pizza cafe in the Royal National Hotel courtyard and back to the hotel to face no Internet and head for bed. I will do another entry for today.
