We took the airport express train from Heathrow to Paddington Station where our Brit-rail Pass was activated. Our 8-day pass gives us 9 days use anywhere in the UK (United Kingdom). This spur of the moment trip came immediately after our Alaskan Cruise. Not having adequate time to prepare, the two of us are winging our itinerary per day rather than following a pre-planned route.
After about a 21/2 hours train ride to southwest England, we were back at the familiar Bristol Main station. A short taxi ride brought us to another Premier Inn. This hotel is located in the heart of the Old City just a stone’s throw from the River Avon.
J.J. and I took a short walk around the neighborhood before dinner.
