Walking to Hotel Marigold – 25 February 2012
Another glorious day, inspired us to think about walking to Harrow to see a movie. Harrow is only 8 miles away as the crow flies, but a walking route we found on the Web, suggested this would translate into 14 miles walking. A closer look at the map, showed that by walking south past the Colne Valley lakes and along Grand Union Canal, we would end up at Uxbridge. A delicious lunch at a canal side pub, helped us complete the eight mile walk.
From Uxbridge, we could easily catch a tube to Harrow in time for a spot of shopping before we collapsed into the theatre seats to enjoy watching the movie of 'The Most Exotic Marigold Hotel'. Having experienced a variety of Indian hotels just over a year ago, it was a great nostalgia trip.
