Aldeburgh Moot Hall, built in the 16th century as the Town Hall, and still used as such as well as being the Museum. Built around 1550, it is one of the best preserved Tudor buildings in Britain, and originally had 6 shops on the ground floor. #historicbuilding #tudorbuilding #elizabethanbuilding #timberframed #suffolkcoast #aldeburgh #britishhistory

Kettner’s. The name alone brings to mind Oscar Wilde, Agatha Christie and Bing Crosby, all regulars at this Soho institution. Not to mention the badly behaved Edward VII. Opened in 1867 by Auguste Kettner, chef to Napoleon III, it was one of the first London restaurants to serve French food – considered exotic fare back in the day. Edward VII ordered a secret tunnel from Kettner’s to the Palace Theatre so that he could rendez-vous more easily with his mistress, the actress Lillie Langtry. In the early 2000s, I would dine here with my children when it was an upscale Pizza Express and champagne jazz bar – it was our go-to for a white tablecloth dinner without all the drama of having to eat anything too sophisticated. Kettner’s has just re-opened, this time with Soho House in the driving seat. Thankfully, the atmosphere doesn’t seem to have changed much. Chintzy furniture and white tablecloths are still in evidence, as is the smooth live jazz. I recommend the Champagne Martini. Or just the champagne, à la Wilde. Cheers! #kettners #oscarwilde #britishhistory #britishroyals #westend #coventgarden #lon#londonaurants #secretlondon #jazzbars #londonsbestbars #agathachristie #london #londoner #discoverlondon #explorelondon #anglophile #lovelondon #timeoutlondon #londonist #wanderlustlondon #culturetriplondon #londonforlocals #visitbritain #unlimited_london #londonblogger #visitlondon #londonbylondoners

As we come to the end of this historical month for women, I thought I’d celebrate it in my own little way. Over the next five days I will be posting about animated female characters that I personally think are underrated. First up it’s Chel from The Road to El Dorado. Chel knows what she wants, she has no shame, and she is even the one that initiates her relationship with Tulio. She is a character that the writers actually took time to develop well instead of leaving her to be a damsel in distress! #chel #theroadtoeldorado #dreamworks #dreamworksanimation #underrated #underratedcharacter #votesforwomen #100years #yearofthewoman #history #britishhistory #fineliner #finelinerart #animation #art #fanart #sketch #sketchbook #sketching #character #characterdrawing #drawing

When the New Model Army was formed in 1645, one of its most innovative aspects was that officers were chosen and promoted based on merit and devotion to the Parliamentarian (and 'Independent' religious) cause, rather than on their social standing (as had been the case before and became the case again after the Restoration). For example: Musketeer Langhorne has risen through the ranks to become the officer in charge of our musket, with his sons Daniel and Robert following in his footsteps. Here he is at @peterborough_cathedral . #reenactment #his#historicalreenactment #reenactmentlife #history #historical #17thcentury #englishcivilwar #englishhistory #britishhistory #newmodelarmy #soldiers #musket #musketeer #manchester #leeds #peterborough #weekendwarrior #instagram #photoadaychallenge #dailyphoto Photo by Allan Harris

#helenamay #helenamaybuilding #hongkonghistory #hongkongbuilding #dayoutwithmother #hostelforladies #britishhistory Went for a day out with my mother to a guide tour of Helena May Building, you have to book in at least a month advance to secure reservations for guide tour, and make sure your visit to HK include the day they do guide tour for public. The place was set up by Helena May the wife of fifth governor in Hong Kong, based on the sympathy she had of single women who came to Hong Kong for work and have little chances to find a decent place to live and enjoy the community, she built the place for ladies to have a place to stay. It has also provided for other functions like ballet lessons, balls for people to meet and a library that was originally part of the ballroom. The place was a mixture of English and Chinese style, as even the place was of Edwardian design, you can still see some Chinese element in the building (especially the arch windows if you look hard enough). Here the photo presented The Blue Room, where members and own family hang around, as well as with friends. In order to be part of Helena May one must become a member (women only) to enjoy the facilities, apparently you also have to be referred by another member or two before joining the party. If you have no wish to join, just keep an eye on their monthly tour of the place. :)

‘s art So for school, we are doing this project where we have to study a famous person’s life and we have to do a speech on it. We have to use some sort of visual aid for the speech so I decided to draw Mary Tudor, because she is the person I picked for my project. I’m actually really proud of the end result. I was going for an old painting sort of style. Hope you guys like it! Also, I didn’t know her birthday was six days ago, so happy birthday you killer queen 👏🏻👏🏻 Tags: #art#artoninstagram #art #doodle #drawing #coloredpencils #gelpens #sharpie #markers #realism #portrait #painting #old #history #britishhistory #que#queenmary #marytudor #bloodymary #maryofengland #1500s #queen #ruler #england

After a busy day, I’m settling down with a Scotch and one of my great political heroes: Lord Palmerston. Not least because he immeasurably enlivened my A-Level History lessons in my youth, a leviathan in an era of almost mythical great names in British politics (Gladstone, Peel, Disraeli, Salisbury, Bright and the rest). A patriot and a domestic conservative who championed England’s national interest while Europe was convulsing through spasmodic paroxysms of chaos, turmoil and tumult #palmerston #lordpalmerston #viscountpalmerston #lordcupid #lordpumicestone #nineteenthcentury #regencybuck #britishpolitics #victorian #georgian #williamite #greatbriton #greatenglishman #britishhistory #politics #politicalhistory

Year: 1936 Country: England Price(s): half British pound pence to two and a half British pound pence These stamps show the profile of King Edward VIII of England. “The King who never wore a crown” reigned for only eleven months, before he abdicated to marry Wallis Simpson, an American socialite and twice divorcée. As head of the Church of England, which then didn’t recognize marriage of a divorced person unless the previous spouse is dead, the King couldn’t marry Simpson and be the monarch. Edward’s refusal to give up Wallis led to his abdication in 1936. He was succeeded by his brother George VI. Edward was given the title His Royal Highness the Duke of Windsor and married Simpson the following year. #Britain #britishhistory #kingedwardvii #britishcrown #britishmonarchy

1921 - King George V - Florin - United Kingdom My second favourite of all the Florin designs... Lovely heraldic representation of our beloved union. In the centre is a garter star... The oldest and highest order of chivalry available. Often characterised by the diamond encrusted start worn on the right breast and the blue sash. A fascinating topic I could go on for hours!

In December 1861, within days of the death of Prince Albert, Queen Victoria had chosen a site for his mausoleum at Frogmore. The design was to echo that of the Prince’s father, Duke Ernest I, in Saxe-Coburg. Albert had helped to design this mausoleum, and the Queen wanted every aspect of the new building to reflect the taste of her dead husband. The designer, Ludwig Gruner, had been Albert’s artistic mentor. It was under his guidance that the Prince had worked so hard to promote Renaissance Italian art as a model for the decoration of the New Palace of Westminster, and this was the style now adopted for his mausoleum. . . The foundation stone of the mausoleum was laid in 1862; the Prince’s remains were placed in the tomb in 1868; and the interior decoration was finished in 1871. The Queen lived another thirty years before joining her husband in the mausoleum in 1901. Some alterations have been made to the interior; originally the dome was painted with stars against a blue background, but in 1909 this scheme was replaced by a more elaborate one designed by Ion Pace. At the same time Gruner’s patterned windows were removed and new ones introduced. . . The mausoleum is a centrally planned building with an octagonal drum and polygonal roof. It is constructed of granite and Portland stone and the roof is covered in copper. The building is entered via a triple-arched portico, its ceiling decorated with an early example of prefabricated mosaic imported from Venice. Inside, the magnificent central tomb is surmounted by the recumbent effigies of the Queen and Prince, the last works of the Queen’s favourite sculptor, Baron Carlo Marochetti, who died in 1867. The interior decoration is a lavish melange of structural and painted Italianate polychromy, with inlaid coloured marbles on the pavement and walls and painted decoration on the spandrels and dome. Almost all the sculptural and painted decoration was carried out by Italian or German artists working in the style of Raphael, the painter Albert most admired. . . #vic#victoria> #victorianarchitecture #victoria #victoriaandalbert #heritage #englishheritage #britishhistory #britishheritage #mausoleum #death

Descended from the Meakins, the brothers had pottery in their blood. Their work was so well received, that they attained Royal Warrant from both Her Majesty the Queen, and the Queen Mother.

Scotland, where they blow goats and speak English poorly. 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 - Scottish culture and history is actually quite interesting. Deep fried confectionary items aside, the Scottish have a long and interesting history. - Any settlements in Scotland that existed before the Neolithic period can’t be reliably traced, due to repeated glaciations, but the first traceable hunter-gatherers entered Scotland around 12 800 years ago, following the retreat of the ice sheet after the last glaciation of Scotland. The first permanent settlers followed 9 500 years ago, and the first villages around 6 000 years ago, i.e. Skara Brae in Orkney. - Written history of Scotland begins around the Roman conquest of Britannia, the province which encompassed England and Wales, but Rome only really conquered the South of Scotland, and for a short time, all whilst facing considerable resistance from the Caledonians (a collection of Scottish tribes), whom almost eliminated an entire Roman Legion division (specifically Legio IX Hispana), which was saved, eventually, by some cavalry. - In 83 - 84 CE, the Romans won the Battle of Mons, which is how the Romans conquered to the Highland line, but subsequently retreated, three years later, to Hadrian’s wall, along the border between Scotland and Britannia. The Romans did, of course, build Antonines wall along the Highland line, but they controlled it periodically, for the last time between 208 and 210 CE. - Most of Scotland’s history is tribal, and hence unrecorded. These tribal people, as of circa 150 CE, include: Otadini, Selgovae, Novantae, Domnoni, Otadnini, Damnonii, Epidii, Venicones, Taexali, Vacomagi, Caledoni, Creones, Carnonacae, Decantae, Lugi, Smertae, Caereni, and Cornavii, from South to North. - The Romans, despite only ruling a significant part of the country for a mere 40 years, would have a considerable impact upon the South (controlled by Brythonic tribes, whilst the Highlands and North in general were Pictish). - Continued below

SAS X-Trooper members shown as POWs in Italy (1942). All of the surviving members of X Troop would remain as prisoners of war until they were repatriated with the Italian surrender. * A total of 35 men consisting of seven officers and 28 other ranks were selected from the SAS Battalion in early 1941 to form a raiding force, which was designated ‘X Troop’. It executed the first British parachute raid of the war against the Tragino Aqueduct in Italy, code named Operation COLOSSUS. The plan was to blow up an aqueduct crossing a small stream called the Tragino 30 miles north east of Salerno. The aim was to disrupt water supplies to the ports of Taranto, Bari and Brindisi, which were embarkation points for Italian forces campaigning in North Africa and Albania. The raid was plagued with problems on the ground and in the end, a large contingent of the commandos were captured. Although it achieved little of military significance, SAS X Troop’s exploits raised morale during a dark period of the war in England and provided valuable airborne experience. 🇬🇧 #pagoda22sas ________________________________________________________#sas #specialairservice #specialforces #britishhistory #wwii #worldwar2 #ww2 #italy #pow #captured #prisoners #captivity #soldiers #whodareswins

How to have clothes from the most expensive postcode in the UK without paying the original pricetag.... buy from me! . . Not only would you be saving money but in equal measures, you'd be saving the environment too. Rethink how you buy your clothes. Could you get luxury brands for hundredth of the price? If so where from? Continue to buy from them to save money and go travelling. . . #resourcefultip always look at the labels, the style of fonts will tell you from your era the garment comes from. The 'Vintage Fashion Guild' has a great online pictorial label archive of designers, in alphabetical order! . . Remember if you're wearing a vintage garment you're wearing history. For me I'm more interested in the social history of the times associated with the garment.

Did a spell in the Pillory sort this miscreant out? Sadly, he soon went back to his schismatic and inflammatory preaching, stirring up trouble in the ranks during our event at @royalarmouriesmuseum. Most people would call this traditional punishment 'the stocks' but that's inaccurate - the stocks secured a ne'er-do-well's feet, the pillory secured their head and hands. As well as being extremely uncomfortable for long periods, the pillory was also a means of publicly humiliating them. The name stems from Old French pellori, possibly derived from the Latin for 'pillar' and was formally abolished as a form of punishment in England and Wales in 1837. #history #historical #englishhistory #britishhistory #historyteacher #reenactment #historicalreenactment #englishcivilwar #punishment #pillory #crime #law #criminal #reenactmentlife #royalarmouries #leeds #manchester

You've probably heard of the Iceni - most famous for their revolt against the Romans in 61 BC - and you've almost certainly heard of their leader, Boudicca, but did you know that they are the only ancient British group to produce coins bearing their own name? The Iceni lived in what is today the county of Norfolk and parts of Suffolk and Cambridgeshire, in eastern Britain. They began to produce coins c.10 BC, and these are most often found in hoards. The numbers in which they are found give a typology of their development that is almost unmatched by any other British group. They are also known to have produced other fine metal items: torcs made of gold and silver, horse fittings, jewellery, and other smaller metal objects. Noble's actions often feature ancient British coins - ranging from $50 estimates all the way to $5,000! Owning a piece of Celtic history is far easier than you might think!
