After the British Museum, we walked to Buckingham Palace to see where the Queen of England “lives.” I had finished the Netflix original series, “The Crown” before we left the state for our trip. I’m glad I did. I think I was more interested in the palace than if I had not seen it in the show. I highly recommend the show by the way!
Paul and I took a glimpse of the soldiers in their traditional redcoats and huge furry black hats. We marveled at the entrance gates that was gold, with initials of her Queen and included Unicorn images as well.
There is a statue in front of the palace worth looking at as well if you have the time.
After Buckingham we walked back to St. Pancras. I had heard from a local Londoner that this was the “Longest Champagne Bar in Europe.” It did not disappoint. We even indulged more and got a nice side of smoked salmon, lemon, capers, creme fraiche, and arugula to nibble on. It was a nice way to end our final hours in London on our way to France. We toasted before we took our first sip to our great time in London. And we toasted with our final sip to the adventures that awaited us in Paris.
