Trying to give something back to the Community...
… need to take your mobile or other electronic devices or ANYTHING with a battery in (yes including car keys that contain a battery for remote central locking whether the battery is built into the key or on a central fob), then you will NOT be admitted to the Embassy.
It does state the majority of this on the Embassy website but when it comes to car keys it mentions a separate fob so I thought I was OK with a key with the battery built in – no such joy. So what do you do if you have no choice BUT to go by car (like us as we had to get the Embassy so early), and you’ve not got anyone or anywhere to look after your keys (we left my laptop, mobiles, etc. at home)?
The answer is Audley Pharmacy who are a stones throw away from the Embassy. Just tell them you want to store something and they’ll give you a ticket and bag up your stuff and for £2 (I guess bigger items are more expensive), they take care of your items.
Their details are:
Audley Pharmacy 36 South Audley Street Mayfair London W1K 2PL
Tel: 020 7493 3256
Hope it’s of some use.
