This is a day in London in the company of a Blue Badge guide, the highlight of the day being a tour of Clarence House. The guide will meet us for coffee at 10:3 0am before we set off on a coach tour, hearing stories, and visiting areas connected with seven Queens, and the many mistresses of England. There will then be a stop for lunch in the numerous restaurants and cafes in the St James’s area. After a short walk into St James’s Park we visit Clarence House, which was the home of The Queen Mother for fifty years. We will be given a guided tour around the five ground floor rooms where The Prince of Wales undertakes official engagements. The arrangement of the rooms and their contents remain much as they were in Queen Elizabeth’s time, with outstanding20 th century paintings, and superb examples of Faberge, as well as English porcelain and silverware. There will be time for a hot drink before setting off home at 5:15 pm.
