We rode the Eurostar from Paris to London in late March, very impressed with the welcome awaiting refugees from Ukraine at St. Pancras Station. Bravo, Brits.
We had a cozy house in Notting Hill for the week, with all of the city and beyond to enjoy.
We soon found several equally cozy neighborhood pubs to sample. I divided one of my days between research at the British library (below, left) and the tempting environs of Liberty of London on Regent Street (below, right).
Above, dinner at Burger & Lobster, a favorite in Mayfair; Below, we took the train to W. Sussex to collect a treasure Kristine won in an on-line antique auction. A cane with a carved knob of the Duke of Wellington's head now resides in Naples, Florida. What would he think? Below left, the Dog and Bacon pub for lunch; right, the cane.
Above, we wandered a bit around Horsham to get a feel for the village which I used, renamed, in my novella "Lady Laura's Curiosity" in the A Regency Summer Garden, now available on Amazon Kindle and Kindle Unlimited. Below, more Horsham.
Next, The Lanesborough Hotel, London
