The task of getting to Hamburg was initially hindered by the announcement of all London trains to Heathrow Airport being cancelled. Panic! Frantic iPhone button pressing! Luckily, it turned out that this didn’t include the tube, so I jumped on the Piccadilly line and rode all the way to the end – the infamous Terminal 5.
We started off with a free Hamburg city tour from Sandemans New Europe. I’ve been on their tours a few times before, and their guides are always good fun with great location knowledge. Our guide Irene today certainly didn’t disappoint.
