Signs, Signs: Royal Signs

Following last week's Royal Wedding, I thought to post signage I captured around the stables at Buckingham Palace on a visit several years ago.
.

Of course I wasn't worried about the horses biting, and who could resist those beautiful brown eyes, after all?

Hello Lynette,
Very witty signs, especially given their location!!!
Lots of pomp and ceremony and a very busy city.
London is not my favourite place, as it is just too crowded and too busy. Living in a small market town has lowered my tolerance level for 'BIGNESS'!!
Lovely photographs, as usual.
Best wishes, Eileen

Oh these are fantastic signs, Lynette! How very cool!!!!! When did you take these? Did you stop here on your way to Glasgow? Marvellous.

Hey, I saw the Royal Mews from the top of a double-decker tour bus! Unfortunately that's as close as I got. Next time!!!

Lovely horse! Great shots.

I've only been to England once and that was long ago. I don't remember whether we saw the Mews or not ... but I do remember the double decker bus tour, and not being able to understand the taxi drivers.

These are great pictures. I wonder if anyone has ever been stepped on, kicked or bitten by the horses...

Love the quiet gaze of the horse! And as for signs round Buckinhgham Palace, I don't think I have ever seen them photographed before! Interesting photos!

I have loved London ever since I lived there for 8 months in 1974. Great signs!

Lesley said...

That is a great shot of the horse. I love the word "mews." I don't know why it is just old school. Really old school.

Katy Cameron said...

Don't know about biting, but I think the first one's eyeing up your camera for lunch ;o)

love the first sign.btw thanks for the lovely comment.

Wren said...

I suppose all horses may bite or kick, but I also suppose they got tired of rescue tourists.

Don't you love london? It's one of my favorite cities.

Woody said...

That's an interesting set of signs. I particularly like the house one.

Lynn Richards said...

So fun!!! I would love to see Buckingham palace some day. The horse is beautiful, but I'm hoping those ears are back due to him listening to who ever is on his back, and not because he is mad!

I like the way the British signs always seem so polite.

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

You got some wonderful London signs! We loved the polite signs when we were there (please and thank you!).... I enjoyed watching the Royal Wedding on TV and reminiscing about the year we were there in the Spring!
