The Embassy Chapel at the rear of No 32 Welbeck St.

30/31 Chesham Place. The former building of the Russian Imperial Embassy.

This link seems to indicate the Imperial Embassy was located at Chesham Place, not Welbeck St.

ALBION HOUSE RAMSGATE

Albion House Ramsgate, link by Geograph.org. http://www.geograph.org.uk/photo/3603921


Refurbishment of Albion House Ramsgate, July 2014. Soon to open as a boutique hotel.

Between the 7th and 31st of October 1835 Princess Victoria had a severe attack of typhoid. Whilst convalescing the dastardly John Conroy commanded her to sign a document that would make him her private secretary, ......she would not. Despite this Victoria seems to have fond memories of Ramsgate.
