Ceremonial London

by zona85631

We will be in London from May 22 until May 27. We would like to see or take part in some unique ceremonial activities, something that involves costumes and a certain amount of pagentry. We've seen the changing of the guard and the horseguards parade. We would really like something quirky. Any ideas?

You may be too late to book for the dates you want, but there is the ceremony of the keys at the Tower of London, see http://www.hrp.org.uk/TowerOfLondon/WhatsOn/ceremonyofthekeys.aspx.
It's a shame you won't be there a month later when there will be a fabulous river pageant for the 500th anniversary of the coronation of Henry VIII. And Trooping the Colour, for the Queen's official birthday, is also in June.

If you fancy a day in the country you could head to the Gloucestershire village of Coopers Hill for the ancient cheese rolling races

I'm not sure if it's an everyday occurance, but there are often people dressed in costumes at Hampton Court. It's a beautiful place to visit and easily reached by train from London.. maybe a 50 minute trip. The gardens are fantastic as is the palace. There's a special exhibition on now because of the Henry VIII celebrations. Costumed people also cook in the kitchens - maybe just on weekends?

Cooper's Hill isn't a village. It's a hill.

Travel Tips for London

You must walk around the city....

by wayfarer75

You must walk around the city. If you just take the Underground to the major tourist places, you miss out on the beautiful neighborhoods, finding your favorite pub perhaps, and you also get very little idea of how the city is laid out. Just climb out of a tube stop and walk around!

London Tip

by heli

Be sure you carry no explosives with you when trying to get to the plane that's leaving from the Hearthrow Airport. I almost got late because of that! No one ever told me that I can't take my semtex with me... and I heard about a thousand comments and questions about me having relations to the IRA or me being some kind of terrorist! Me? How can anyone think I am a terrorist? I'm just a little innocent girl who has never done anything bad in her little life! I don't look suspicious! I carried just a sword-stylish letter-opener and a bottle of Dr.Pepper!!! Still they caught me and interrogated me! ..so, if you can, run away from mad terrorist-hunters like the people at Heathrow. (With all due respect...there are many people at Hearthrow, and so someone _has_ to be normal.)

Classic London

This pair of spiffy traditional telephone boxes can be found at Russell Square Gardens(east side). Instant postcard! Sadly, the insides of most of the telephone boxes I saw were quite grotty, so I recommend admiring them from the outside and using a mobile phone! :)

Monuments and Memorials (1) Edith Cavell

by gordonilla

As with many British cities, london has many memorials and monuments to those citizens who have shown valour and distinction, especially if they have been involved in battel or military conflict.

Many people are aware of Florence Nightingale, who may be considered as the founder of modern nursing; however few people have heard of Edith Cavell. She was born in Norfolk in December 1865, and entered the nursing profession aged 20. She moved to Belgium to work and follow her vocation and became Matron of the Berkendael Medical Institute, Brussel in 1907. During her time in Belgium, she made a major contribution to the modernisation of the of Belgian nursing service.

As a result of the Great War and the occupation of Belgium; Matron Cavell joined the Red Cross. The Institute was converted in a hospital for the wounded of all nationalities. With her active participation, many allied soldiers were treated and then escaped to neutral Netherlands. Arrested on 5 August 1915, Edith Cavell was charged with aiding 200 soldiers escape internment. After 9 weeks of solitary confinement, a confession was extracted from her - she and her colleague Philippe Baucq were found guilty and sentenced to death.

The sentence was carried out on 12 October 1915, without reference to the German High Command. The worldwide press coverage was very sympathetic towards her and just confirmed the view of the supposed barbaric treatment of the Belgians by the occupying German forces.

It's a vortex of strange weather

Bring a handbag with you that is discreet and also I highly recommend extra zippers.
I carried a simple black leather bag, and it didn't attract attention at all. Rain jackets are a must, as are umbrellas! For shoes, I recommend comfortable shoes that you can walk in (save the high heels for short nights out). If you want to stick out and have a big "TOURIST" sign over your head at all times, tennis shoes are great. However, if you want to make an attempt at looking local, a smart pair of comfortable and attractive leather shoes will be great. A simple digital camera will allow you to take a larger number of better quality photos. I suggest dressing nicely while in London, simply because the locals do. I have found the the people who dress sloppy and stick out are the tourists. It is easy to pick out tourists (ball caps, blue jeans, tennis shoes, backpacks) I honestly feel it's safer to dress nicely and try to fit in with the locals.
