Showstopper! The Improvised Musical
BMW ‘driven into city shop’ Though the exact nature of events will depend on whether the death is sudden and unexpected as with Princess Diana or after an illness, when the world’s longest serving monarch, Queen Elizabeth II , dies, hundreds of years of tradition and years of planning will kick into action. When the last monarch died – the Queen’s father, George VI – the official announcement was just two sentences long. But those words will set into action a whole series of events, the like of which many of us will never have seen.
It is understood members of the devolved Governments were at a recent meeting in London to discuss plans for what happens after the Queen’s death. Much has changed in the 66 years since the last monarch died.
Inns and Taverns of Old London by Henry C. Shelley Preface and contents Chapter 1: Famous Southwark Inns. Unique among the quaint maps of old London is one which traces the ground-plan of Southwark as it appeared early in the sixteenth century.
There you shall find the wit and wine Flowing alike, and both divine: Dishes, with names not known in books, And less among the college-cooks; With sauce so pregnant, that you need Not stay till hunger bids you feed. The sweat of learned Jonson’s brain, And gentle Shakespeare’s eas’er strain, A hackney coach conveys you to, In spite of all that rain can do: And for your eighteenpence you sit The lord and judge of all fresh wit. Nor was it in verse alone that Suckling celebrated the praises of wine.
Among the scanty remains of his prose there is that lively sally, written at the Bear, and entitled: The Wine-drinkers to the Water-drinkers. After mockingly commiserating with the teetotalers over the sad plight into which their habits had brought them, the address continues: We have had divers meetings at the Bear at the Bridge-foot, and now at length have resolved to despatch to you one of our cabinet council, Colonel Young, with some slight forces of canary, and some few of sherry, which no doubt will stand you in good stead, if they do not mutiny and grow too headstrong for their commander.
Him Captain Puff of Barton shall follow with all expedition, with two or three regiments of claret; Monsieur de Granville, commonly called Lieutenant Strutt, shall lead up the rear of Rhenish and white. These succours, thus timely sent, we are confident will be sufficient to hold the enemy in play, and, till we hear from you again, we shall not think of a fresh supply Given under our hand at the Bear, this fourth of July.
Somewhere about the date when this drollery was penned there happened at the Bear an incident which might have furnished the water-drinkers with an effective retort on their satirist.

Photo gallery London attacks At about 10pm on Saturday, London time, a white van drove south over London Bridge ploughing through pedestrians, leaving up to six bodies lying on the road in its wake. The van crashed outside a pub close to the bridge’s southern end, and three men jumped out carrying knives that witnesses said were centimetres long.
They ran through nearby Borough Market to a street with a row of pubs and restaurants, busy with customers on a balmy London summer night. The attackers ran in and out of buildings slashing and stabbing, apparently indiscriminately.

To qualify for these passholder fares your pass needs to cover either the country where your Eurostar journey starts, or the country where it finishes, or both. A very attractive deal! Check-in 45 minutes before your train, not A passholder print-at-home ticket may not operate the Eurostar check-in gates so you must check-in using one of the staffed kiosks so that your railpass can be checked. For this reason, passholders are asked to check in at least 45 minutes before their train, rather than the usual minimum of 30 minutes.
This may have changed – feedback would be appreciated – but this was certainly the situation at launch. Anyone from any country can make Eurostar passholder bookings at www.

Shopping If you are not doing the full walk you might want to go and explore Tower Bridge more closely. Tower Bridge is a relative newcomer, only opened in Otherwise turn away from Tower Bridge and follow the river path of the north bank westwards. Follow the river path until you approach London Bridge. The Monument Turn right just before London Bridge. Take care to cross the busy road that parallels the river, then climb up Fish Street Hill on the opposite side of the road.
Fish Street Hill is the first road northwards for traffic coming east from Westminster after crossing under London Bridge. Keep to the right-hand side of the road the short way until the road bends left. On this bend to your right is the Monument. In there was the Great Fire of London, destroying much of London. The Monument is a memorial to that event, its height ft, is the same as the distance to the bakers shop in neighbouring Pudding Lane where the fire started.
The Monument is the tallest stone column in the world, topped by a vase of flames. It was designed by Christopher Wren who also was responsible for St Paul’s Cathedral which we visit later in the walk.
