Queen Victoria r enjoyed Claremont too!

L3 Day 43. Another trip to the NT garden at Claremont. Very chilly and grey but they did have the cafe open again.
There are lots of benches around the gardens and all have a quote on them. This one “ the happiest days of my otherwise DULL childhood” Queen Victoria 1843. ( written after she came to the throne in 1837- she did not enjoy her restricted upbringing at Kensington Palace) She loved visiting her Uncle Leopold there and took it over herself in 1866 to prevent it from being split up.
