The Queen loves her corgis and to celebrate a treasure-hunt has been created to celebrate some of the 30 or so corgis that she has owned, “The Queen and her corgis”. Here are the Queen’s corgi’s name and a little of their history.

Our treasure hunt on July 30th 2022 looking for the corgis
We left Waterloo station and headed out to catch a bus to Victoria. The double decker “211” was sat with doors closed and we moved on to the “507” stop when a the small bus arrived and the driver opened the doors for passengers while he waited. The “507” was an electric bus – my first in London. The two buses set off at the same time and arrived by Victoria station at the same time despite their different routes.
Once at Victoria we started the treasure hunt looking for the corgis…
