My mother encouraged me to be safe and if there was a terrorist attack we should hide behind a pole....so we practiced.
We couldn't hook up with the Air BNB owner until 730 so in the rain we're lugging around our luggage (up 2 flights of steps and into a restaurant). It was a long day. The apartment itself was okay. It was right by the Thames but away from any tourist sights. I liked the location near the Vauxhall tube station.
