miscellany Buckingham Palace by Stephen10 August 201914 October 2019 A view of what, to most of us, is the “back” of Buckingham Palace, after we complete the excellent (if a bit pricey) tour of the State Rooms. We’d been once before, when we were guests at a garden party, but with a ban on phones and cameras for those, there is no photographic record. This time on emerging from the palace, we were allowed to collect our bag including phones and camera, and able to take a few photos. We had a look around the little shop, then continued through the gardens towards the exit. There was an ice-cream kiosk which sold some really excellent Windsor-branded ice cream Across the water back to the palace before we make our departure back to Limehouse ready for our trip on the Thames.
