The Savoy is a hoity-toity place, right? Need a bucketful of buckaroos to stay there, right? Or pounds...or gold...

Count Peter I know from nothing. Most counts I do know don't count for much!

A lovely photo. Elicits all kinds of silliness... ;-)

Another place I recognise :-)

Here's a little titbit for you: The road leading off the Strand to the Savoy entrance is the only road in England where cars are required to drive on the right hand side!

@ Jacob - Of Count Peter I know about the same of you...
@ Tinsie - I've heard of that, but I thought it was an urban legend!

Tinsie said...

Nope, it's true! Look here.

Or even here.

@ Tinsie - My next shot of the place will include the cabs... Thank you!

So English. It does look as posh as it sounds.
