    Queen's Guard

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Be careful when "asked" to exit the cathedral at times other than closing, especially by large uniformed gents. As I was beginning to photograph a completely empty cathedral (and wondering why it was so empty of tourists) I was unceremoniously told to remove myself from the premises.

    As I'd been inside for some time photographing nooks I'd not seen the signs being put up that the facility had been closed. It seems the Queen Mother had arrived and wished to attend.

    While cordial, the guards made it known my presence was not wanted.

    White belly. Fine 2/6d

    by TheLongTone Written Aug 24, 2009

    Kings had a draconian dress code. We were, after all, gentlemen, and had to disport ourselves as such. Edwardian style. A wing collar was rig of the day, and if one was not wearing a waistcoat (I kid you not) or a pullover (a concession to modernity that probably caused some controversy) you had to keep your (black) jacket buttoned. If transgression was spotted by the trusties.....bang went half-a-crown. Which would have bought ten smokes and a cup of tea back then.

    If you have to take your car into the city then watch out for the traffic wardens, they are everywhere and they are ruthless as well, i have been caught 2 in Canterbury and it does ruin your day. Wheel clamping is also in operation in the city, so bewhere and don't outlive your parking ticket. Leave your car in one of the park and ride services as seen in my transport pages, it will cost you less in the long run BELIEVE ME
