We were very lucky one evening when we took a walk to see where the Queen lives, that the roads were very quiet and shut off to traffic. Some setting up of the marathon was taking place, so were able to wander around at leisure....More

Unbeknownst to us, we arrived there slightly before the change of the guards so stayed to watch. Unfortunately with so many people everywhere, and even though we were the first row of people, we barely saw anything with people arriving last minute crawling over us,...More
