KENTISH CURIOS

When we think of the River Medway we tend to think of Rochester and Chatham but in the Upper Medway Valley the river flows through some of our most beautiful countryside. We begin at an ancient country church with beautiful stained glass by Marc Chagall and end at the serene Carmelite Friary founded beside the  river by a crusader.


CORONATIONS & CELEBRATIONS

BRAND

NEW

Coronations & Celebrations

Kings, queens, statesmen and soldiers. Poets, priests, heroes and villains. Westminster Abbey is a living pageant of British history. The Abbey has been the coronation church since 1066, has seen the weddings of sixteen Kings & Queens, is the final resting place of seventeen monarchs and contains memorials to some of our greatest citizens.

From her first public appearances Diana, Princess of Wales, captivated the world. Twenty years on from her death, a new exhibition and a temporary garden celebrating her life will be opened at Kensington Palace.

THE FAME GAME - THE GEORGIAN CELEBRITY REVOLUTION

BRAND NEW

Eighteenth century London played host to the first celebrity revolution as a new showy class sprang up from the profits of the British Empire, new financial services like banking and insurance and (really nothing is new) from a rise in property values. The century also saw the rise of popular newspapers alongside publications like The Tatler bringing the gossip from the High Society and the coffee houses - the tittle tattle.
