Conde Nast August

Condé Nast Traveler says:

"Londoner McCrum's strength is her personal connections—primarily with members of the aristocracy who open up their personal homes (manors and castles, these) exclusively for you to visit or perhaps even overnight in, and with heads of museums, palaces, and royal residences to gain access far beyond what the general public can see. What we love about McCrum is that—even though she can usher travelers right past the six-year waiting list to view Prince Charles’s gardens at Highgrove, get them into Buckingham Palace outside of visiting hours, or secure VIP access to the most quintessential of British activities, such as major horse trials or rowing regattas—there's not a highfalutin bone in her body, so you needn't deal with any attitude. For lodgings, she favors converted castles and atmospheric country houses." Read more ...

 Wendy Perrin says:

"Jane’s speciality is providing exclusive access to the United Kingdom’s most prestigious events and enviable addresses. She’ll score you prime seats at Wimbledon, get you into Prince Charles’s gardens at Highgrove, and set up private visits to any number of royal residences, from Buckingham Palace to Highclere Castle (better known as Downton Abbey)". Read more ...

“I just wanted to thank you for an amazing, once in a life time trip to London.  We were beyond pleased with our accommodations, tour guides and drivers--and I don't even know where to begin to express my appreciation for arranging for the tour and private lunch in London, and coffee at Windsor Castle.  We will be talking about this trip for many years to come!”

Sunrise in London

Watch the sun come up from London Bridge, and then walk along the River Thames as the early sunlight glimmers on the water.

 Spring sees layers of colour spread across the Gardens as trees and flowers come alive. It's an enchanting time to visit Kew, with a photo opportunity at every turn.

London Season 2017

London doesn’t hibernate in winter – the fun just moves indoors. The arrival of spring definitely witnesses a change of pace in the city. April showers herald the start of warmer weather and a host of outdoor events that see Londoners and visitors alike shedding their sweaters and enjoying the longer days.

 

London’s green spaces look their best in spring. Everybody’s favourite floral indicator of the change in season is the daffodil, and the best places to see them are St James’s Park and Green Park, where over 60,000 were planted to celebrate the Queens Jubilee in 2012 covering the lawns.

 Football Season Ends - FA Cup Final - May

 It can be said that English people in general were the ones who kept the tradition of football alive during the Middle Ages.

A very popular form of the sport in the mid-14th Century England was called mob football. It was played by an unlimited number of players. At that point, there was still no one who created football rules.

Players were allowed to go on playing as long as their actions do not lead to manslaughter. They played the games on the streets and turned towns into giant pitches.
Since anyone could join in the games and there were very few rules, medieval football often went out of hand and ended in riots. Playing on the streets also caused trouble to residents and merchants.
These forced rulers to issue decrees banning the sport. However, it has already become so popular that its playing was not stopped at all.

By the end of the 14th Century, the game has become deeply embedded in the English culture.

 

 Trooping the Colour – June

 The Queen’s birthday is officially celebrated by the ceremony of the Trooping the Colour .

   

 The tradition of Trooping the Colour:

Although The Queen was born on 21 April, it has long been the tradition to celebrate the Sovereign's birthday publicly on a day in the summer, when good weather is more likely.

Trooping the Colour is carried out by fully trained and operational troops from the Household Division (Foot Guards and Household Cavalry) on Horse Guards Parade in Whitehall, watched by members of the Royal Family, invited guests and members of the public.

This military ceremony dates back to the early eighteenth century or earlier, when the colours (flags) of the battalion were carried (or 'trooped') down the ranks so that they could be seen and recognised by the soldiers

 The Queen travels down The Mall from Buckingham Palace, by carriage, with a Sovereign's escort of Household Cavalry.
