After having been in London several times, you’d think I have seen it all. Of course when you visit first you really need to see the obvious royal places like Buckingham Palace, St James’s Palace, Kensington Palace, Clarence House, the Queen’s Gallery, Kew Gardens … I’ve never been inside Buckingham Palace or Clarence House, as […]
