I’m going to be flying into London soon before taking a train towards Benelux. I’ll be staying at least one night, though I could push it up to 2 nights if it would be worth it. I won’t have much time to explore when I return for my flight back home, so this would be my best opportunity.
I’ll arrive early on a weekday and my plan is to check into a hostel near my train station. I want to do some exploring of the city during the day and check out some pubs (any suggestions near Waterloo station?) at night, and my train departure would be around 14h the next day. Would it be worth staying another full day? Like, for someone who went to London without really being particularly excited about it, were you glad that you spent several days there?
I scanned over hostel prices and it would be another 20-36 bucks, depending where I stay. Eurostar prices look to be same for either departure, so it’s basically just going to be a matter of what’s most fun.
