Goldwork Day 4

So this is where I have been all week, on the upper floors above the Royal Apartments





It is close to where the imfamous fire started all those years ago and it has been restored as close to how it would have originally looked. It is wonderful to be in such a historic building and when I arrive, before the tourists, I am able to walk through the Tudor area and soak in the atmosphere, half expecting hoards of servants to be rushing around getting breakfast ready for the King!
