"Spare the Horses, James"

Fine dining at Albion Manor's rextaurant partners

In the latter half of the 19th century, Queen Victoria, whose name this city proudly bears, had a carriage driver named James Darling.  Traditionally, staff was addressed only by their surname.  As such, Queen Victoria would have addressed Mr. Darling as ‘Darling’ – possibly inappropriately.  So, she called him ‘James’.   Always impatient and anxious to get home to the palace, “Home James, and don’t spare the horses’, is said to have been a phrase she used regularly.

But we’re in no hurry here.  Your carriage driver (it may not be James) will entertain you with tales about Victoria.  At the end, you will be dropped at one of Albion's gourmet restaurant partners:

Blue Crab
Restaurant Matisse
