Clarence House is the Prince of Wales's London Home, just down the road from Buckingham Palace on the north side of the mall. Very impressive, simply to drive by. Only wish i'd of had more time.

Clarence House is where Prince Charles and family live and so security is tight. While there we saw the changing of the guard and got backed up by mounted police. That was interesting.

the aristocratic “Clubland” of St James's is a premier
destination for high end craft and bespoke design.
