We saw the Palace’s Ballroom which was set up for a State Banquet.
The horseshoe shaped table which they use on these occasions is covered in beautiful silver gilt items from the grand service, we also saw lots of wonderful jewelled cups, ivory tankards,dishes, sconces, shields, wow, it was incredible. The palace is a must see, do it soon though other wise you will have missed out till next year, can you really wait till then
The Covent Garden Whisky Shop is the only shop in London that sells true malt whiskies. They said that they usually have over 170 or so malt whiskies in stock,so when I went gift hunting I was really spoilt for choice. That did make it hard to pick some thing but the staff were helpful.
If you are looking for some thing individual and unique then this is the place for you.
They never add any artificial colouring to their whiskies to enhance the colour and it is not usual for more than one whisky to be bottled at a time. This means that each malt even from a from particular distillery can offer different flavours. I chose the cambletown malt for my gift and it went down a treat. Will be back to buy a few xmas gifts here very soon, but need to budget for this as it is not cheap here.
