The adventure begins with entering thru a set of gates replica of the grand gates at Buckingham Palace.

    This year’s flower show certainly will be one to remember- the animated Big Ben brought a special zest to the show- and the Beatles tribute was stunning.
    The shopping court was much more diverse with plenty of British products.
    Now I can’t wait for Spring.
