Thank you all for your very kind words and advice. I have opted for St George’s Wharf in Vauxhall. We have a lovely 2 bedroom apartment with absolutely glorious river views. The fully fitted kitchen will be manned by a “rent a chef” with a great four course menu cooked and served for us at £115 per head. Our two special guests will stay on the Saturday night so am expecting a late(ish) night. I am hoping to feel well enough to at least have one glass of wine and totally ignore doctors advice.
I am also hoping to stay sometime soon at least one night at The Shard.
All the best everyone.
