Hope this finds everyone well.
My friends and I will be traveling to England for the first time in October of this year. Our plane tickets and hotel are all arranged and we are now working on our itinerary. We arrive on Oct 4 and depart on Oct 10 as London as our home base we plan on touring The City for a couple of days, and then day trips to Bath, Stonehenge and Windsor.
In regards to our London itinerary of course we will be visiting the tourist attractions, but what I am having trouble finding in my research is a list of tea rooms and I know this sounds strange if Scotland Yard has any type of tours and in combination with law enforcement if there is a pub or something that one can leave a law enforcement patch.
I will give a brief explanation for these questions. In 2016 the same friends and I visited Dublin, Ireland and we found this tea house The Queen of Tarts and it was amazing, it was for the lack of a better term “cozy”. We are trying to make a list of tea rooms; we have vowed to have tea everyday in England.
The law enforcement patch, well in Dublin there is a pub The Brazen Head and they have patches of law enforcement agencies from all over the world. I am not an officer, but I work very closely with a division within my capacity working for the City of Long Beach, CA. I left a patch at the pub and would very much like to leave a patch in London, where Robert Peel created the Police.
I have one more question, is it better to take cash and exchange it in London or just use ATM machines to get cash for the day?
I travel so infrequently that any ideas or tips or any advice would be most welcome.
Thank you so very much and always be safe in yours travels.
