Coronation Chair, Westminster Abbey Since 1308, when it was commissioned by King Edward I, all but two monarchs have been crowned in the chair. (repeat of an earlier pin, but I like the angle)
Middle Temple Lane - a special place, because it's not a building but a street. You go through the ajar door. I love it because on the other side, is a little piece of medieval London frozen in time. Temple Church and Middle Temple Hall are just beyond. HQ of the Knights Templar & scene of Shakespeare's first attempt to stage indoor plays. Most hurry past, unaware of what's behind. It's near Temple Bar, the old entrance to the City of London, where The Strand & Fleet St. meet.
The Museum of London, if you love London, it's a must on the itinerary. Deep within the older 'City of London', you need to 'seek it out'. The Lord Mayor's Coach or 'State Coach' is displayed there, and makes an annual outing at the Lord Mayor's show, in early November.
The Isle of Dogs - is a tear-drop shaped bend in the Thames. It officially acquired the name in 1987 after 500 years of use, but its origin remains curiously enigmatic. An abandoned farm may have been used to keep hunting dogs from the royal palace at Greenwich. By the 1980s the docks had closed & the area was earmarked for urban development. More than 20 years later, it's an established financial centre with a fascinating mix of traditional working London & 21st century bling.
