Discover one of the World’s most expensive palaces and why people in Bromley prefer their own simpler home comforts.
Close your eyes. Imagine the palace of your dreams…. On second thoughts, don’t close your eyes because you won’t be able to read the rest of this article
When you think of palaces the one which springs to mind for many people in the UK, and indeed the world, is Buckingham Palace. A place fit for any King or Queen. And here’s why…
Queen Elizabeth’s London home is worth between £1billion or £2 billion depending on what internet source you find. Quite a difference in opinion, but one thing is for sure, that’s with the following features and benefits Buckingham Palace is up there with the very best homes in the world:
- The palace has 775 rooms. That includes 52 royal and guest bedrooms, 188 staff bedrooms, 78 bathrooms, 19 staterooms and 78 bathrooms.
- And if that wasn’t enough to gain a Royal seal of approval it also boasts a cinema, swimming pool, post office, police station, clinic and even a cash machine.
- The latter perhaps ironic as we’ve been led to believe the Queen doesn’t carry cash.
According to a survey carried out among 2000 homeowners across the UK, you don’t need gold plated taps to make a home comfortable. The survey, carried out by a hotel company, listed 50 things people said were truly home comforts.
And in our experience in Bromley these findings ring true.
Here are the top ten.
1- Your bed
2- A proper night’s sleep
3 - Home-cooked food
4 - Comfortable sofa
5 – Family around you
6 - Your favourite film or TV programme
7 - A cup of tea
8 - Getting into dossing clothes
9 -Own toilet
10 -Smart phone/tablet/laptop/computer with broadband!
