About the lion Inspired by the Long Walk and my memory of walking down it as a child. That first glimpse of the castle popping up above the trees is just magical. It's always a really big deal too, to check and see whether the Queen is at home, and a peek at the the flag blowing proudly in the breeze is all the excited confirmation you need.
