City Walks with Grethe


Lord Mayor Show

Posted by [email protected] on November 5, 2012 at 7:40 AM

It is that time of year again when the newly elected Lord Mayor will take to the City's street to show himself to the crowds. If you go to the Guildhall, you will be able to see his golden coach on display in a large glass case just outside the offices. And if you go into the splendid Guildhall Art Gallery, you will see several historical paintings depicting the Lord Mayor's procession  - either in the coach or on a barge on the Thames. The Lord Mayor used to travel on the river to Westminster to swear allegiance to the Crown. This was a fabulous sight with many other boats on the river. This tradition continued until 1856 after which time the Lord Mayor has travelled by coach from The Guildhall to the Royal Courts of Justice (just outside the City boundary) to swear allegiance to the Queen. His entourage consists of many colourful floats, soldiers, members of the livery companies etc. and the procession takes 1.5 hour to pass through Fleet Street, and back along Queen Victoria Street to the Mansion House, his official residence. The new Lord Mayor Roger Gifford is the 685th Lord Maylor of London.

If you are in the City next Saturday when the Show takes place, you will find me, with many other guides, at No. 1 Poultry at 3pm from where we will lead free walks around the City of London. Do come and join us at this spectacular event.

The other day, while I was at work, my cousin stole my apple ipad and tested to see if it can survive a 30 foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My iPad is now destroyed and she has 83 views. I know this is totally off topic but I had to share it with someone! tavlor med text pÐ?Ò? svenska
