So what happens when both Catherine and I find ourselves passing through London at the same time one warm evening?
Well after deciding that the queues to play crazy golf on the roof of Selfridge & Co. (no really) were too long, we decided to snub them and go up-market. So we crossed Hyde Park and headed for Harrods – much more my kind of store.
Harrods is a very special place with completely unique architecture – including these genuine original ancient Egyptian escalators, lovingly transported to England and restored to full working order by the current Harrods owner. He has cleverly had them converted from slave power to the new electric system, so favoured across Europe these days.
So on this occasion I decided that an ice-cream was in order and where better to indulge when within Harrods that at the exclusive Morelli’s Ice Cream Parlour, a fine establishment with an extensive array of ice-cream-based desserts. A sumptuous way to end the day.
