How To Travel Around London and Buy an Oyster Card - Important Tips!
 
05:26
Here are some very important tips on how to travel around London and buy an oyster card. Especially if it is your first time visiting London, if you aren't careful you can end up paying a lot more for your travel so it's important you pay the right fare. You can use your oyster card or contactless payment card for lots of different types of transport on London TFL services. This includes buses, trains, tubes, Thames Clipper boats, trams and even the Emirates Airline cable cars. My favourite thing to do is to travel on the old Number 15 routemaster buses. A real icon of London. I'll show you all the tips and tricks on how to behave like a true Londoner and not to be barged out of the way by the locals when travelling on transport in London. There are other ways to pay for London Transport including Apple Pay on your iphone or with a contactless credit or debit card. But I think it's easiest to get an oyster card when you first arrive. Try to avoid buying paper tickets because they cost more!! And the buses don't accept money so you must have an oyster or credit card or apple pay.

How to use TFL London Cycle Hire - Santander Cycles
 
02:13
The London Cycle Hire scheme is a great and affordable way to get around London. Joolz shows you how to use them in this video and gives some helpful tips on what not to do. Most Londoners call them Boris Bikes after Boris Johnson who was the mayor of London when the scheme was initiated and they have sponsors who change periodically. At time of filming it was called the Santander Cycle Hire scheme or Santander Cycles. If you do it right you only have to pay two pounds to hire it for 24 hours but you must only use it in 30 minute stages unless you want to be charged more money. Each 30 minutes is free but if you don't dock it you get charged another £2 per 30 minutes.

Ye Olde Mitre Pub - Where Queen Elizabeth drank - London
 
02:13
Ye Olde Mitre Pub is situated in Ely Court just off Hatton Garden. CLICK HERE http://joolzguides.com SUPPORT MY CHANNEL ON PATREON ➜ https://www.patreon.com/joolzguides for more videos like this about London. The whole area is called Hatton Garden after Sir Christopher Hatton, as I will explain. It was built in 1547 originally as a part of the palace of Ely, which was the town residence of the Bishop of Ely, which is in Cambridgeshire. Ye Olde Mitre would have been the servants' quarters and all part of the bishop's domain. However, Queen Elizabeth had a "favourite" called Sir Christopher Hatton and she wanted him to have a place to stay in London so she commandeered a gatehouse and a large amount of the ground including this building so that she could give it to Sir Christopher Hatton. When Bishop Cox refused the Queen is said to have replied, "Proud prelate, I understand you are backward in complying. I would have you understand that I who made you what you are can unmake you. If you do not faithfully fulfil your engagement, by God I will immediately unfrock you!" The pub was rebuilt in 1772 but remained under the control of Cambridgeshire until the 20th century and indeed the London City police could not arrest you if you entered the area. They would have to call the Cambridgeshire police force to come down and do it. In the corner of the pub there is a tree trunk which is actually a part of the building. It is a supporting beam which existed in Queen Elizabeth's time. She is said to have danced the maypole around it and it marks the boundary between the the bishop of Ely's grounds and those of Sir Christopher Hatton. The pub is not open on weekends but it has a lovely couple of enclosures you can book for private functions and it generally fabulous and old. This is where John of Gaunt does his famous speech in Richard II by William Shakespeare: This royal throne of kings, This sceptered isle This special stone set in a silver sea This blessed plot This earth This realm This England!

Borough Market: London's Oldest Fruit & Veg Market - 50 things to do in London
 
02:06
www.joolzguides.com SUPPORT MY CHANNEL ON PATREON ➜ https://www.patreon.com/joolzguides Borough Market is London's Oldest fruit and veg market and on Joolz's list of top things to do in London. Joolz tries out the best sausage rolls in London, organic iced tea and even award winning English wine! London Bridge used to be the main gateway into London when there was only one bridge across the Thames so a market sprung up here. Chaucer would have passed through on his way to Canterbury whilst writing the Canterbury Tales, as he set of from a pub nearby called The Tabard. These days it's a very popular place for Londoners and tourists alike to buy fresh produce which has all been ethically sourced. There is even a Borough Market panel of judges who make sure that everything is up to standard because it's run by a charity. If you want a London guide where you meet the actual characters of London Joolz Guides is for you. In Borough Market he introduces you to the stall holders as well as seeing where Bridget Jones lived. For more videos like this check out and subscribe to Joolz Guides - a London Guide for Londoners!

Covent Garden - Brothels, Performers and Prostitutes were all part and parcel of Covent Garden over the centuries. Joolz Guides website ➜ http://www.joolzguides.com (Contact me for private tours) SUPPORT MY CHANNEL ON PATREON ➜ https://www.patreon.com/joolzguides Joolz guides you through his old stamping ground where he worked for 7 years and introduces you to the jugglers, buskers and street performers who make up this colourful scene. Meet Terry St, Clair who has busked in Covent Garden for 30 years and see why My Fair Lady has the West Piazza the wrong way round. Also, where the sandwich was invented and Britain's first police force. It's changed a lot over the years, even since Joolz worked here but there is still the sense of theatre with all the performers and street shows in the heart of theatreland. Covent Garden is also where we get expressions like Being In The Limelight and Stealing One's Thunder and Jack Harris's book of Covent Garden Ladies is possibly one of London's most curious publications, detailing all the prostitutes that frequented the area over a 40 years period.

Hidden London - The Savoy - Joolz Guides
 
01:57
http://joolzguides.com SUPPORT MY CHANNEL ON PATREON ➜ https://www.patreon.com/joolzguides Ever wondered why we drive on the left in Britain? Actually, there is is one place where we drive on the right. The Savoy Hotel lies on an an ancient spot in London which was called Sauoy many years ago. The Strand was more of a muddy lane in those days. Now it remains the only place in Britain where we drive on the right. The roundabout at the end is that on which taxi cabs base their turning circle. It has to be able to get around that circle. For more Joolz Guides Videos please subscribe!

Ancient Historical London Sites -The Charterhouse
 
10:34
Here's a look at one of London's most ancient and historically important sites. The Charterhouse in Clerkenwell was originally a plague pit but has had many incarnations since medieval times. Julian McDonnell "Joolz Guides" takes you on a tour with one of the brothers. Subscribe on Youtube ➜ https://www.youtube.com/joolzguides After Sir Walter Manny acquired permission from the pope to build a Carthusian Monastery here it suffered greatly when King Henry Viii came along. One poor prior had his arm nailed to the top of the gate which still stands today. Queen Elizabeth I held her first court at the Charterhouse too! Later it was acquired by the richest man in England, Thomas Sutton, who opened a school for poor boys and a home for elderly men fallen on hard times. It was within these very walls that two of the rules of football originated. The off-side rule and the throw in rule. There is also a free museum and beautiful gardens. Many film productions have taken place at The Charterhouse (which comes from the French "Chartreuse") Why not organise a visit to the Charterhouse http://www.thecharterhouse.org/visit-us/ and don't forget to say Pip Pip Tally Ho so they know you saw my film!

Cabman's Shelter - London Guides
 
02:03
www.joolzguides.com SUPPORT MY CHANNEL ON PATREON ➜ https://www.patreon.com/joolzguides Dotted around London are these little green huts. They are actually cabman shelters designed so that Taxi drivers (and hansome cab drivers in the old days) could have somewhere to go and rest and have some reasonably priced refreshments. Cabman shelters are now listed buildings and you can still buy snacks at them but you are only allowed inside if you are a taxi driver. In this London Guide, Joolz discovers some curious stories about these shelters and talks to some taxi drivers about why having The Knowledge is important. One company even tried to knock a cabman's shelter down in order to build a hotel but they were faced with sterner opposition than they expected.

Tower of London to Wapping - London's Best Riverside Walk
 
12:52
Tower of London to Wapping - London's Best Riverside Walk. This is one of my favourite riverside walks which takes in some lovely old historic pubs too along the river Thames. Starting at The Tower of London see Dead Man's Hole underneath Tower Bridge where dead bodies used to wash up. Then past St Catherine's Dock where Shackleton departed Britain for the last time and down Wapping High Street. Then take a look along the shore of the River Thames where you might go mudlarking and find a Tudor shoe or some other ancient artifact. Continue to the Town of Ramsgate Pub and learn the history of Judge Jeffreys, the hanging judge and where Captain Bligh had his final drink with the crew of The Bounty. Past Wapping Pier Head and then to Execution Dock and the Captain Kidd Pub and Thames River Police. After that past Wapping Station and onto The Prospect of Whitby, one of the oldest riverside pubs in London called Devil's Tavern. Then in Limehouse and past the London Hydraulic Company and Captain Cook's house which used to be the old Chinatown and inspired Sherlock Holmes, Fu Man Chu and The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde. Then finish your walk at The Grapes where Charles Dickens used to drink and which features in Our Mutual Friend.

The Viaduct Tavern is a Gin Palace and was the first pub to be lit by electricity, but beware of the Viaduct Tavern ghost! This poor fellow in the red t-shirt saw it looming around in the cellar! Some say that the cells were a part of the infamous Newgate Prison which was across the road where the Old Bailey now stands. Condemned men would be taken from Newgate to Tyburn (currently Marble Arch) to be hanged, a practice that continued for hundreds of years. Famous inmates included Sweeney Todd.

London Fun Facts Walking Tour - Clerkenwell & Smithfield
 
13:22
One of my favourite walks is around Clerkenwell and Smithfield Market. I love this area of London! There is so much history here that I cannot possibly squeeze it all into one video but here is a nice walking tour which you could do starting at Farringdon. Farringdon Station was the terminus of the first subway (underground) line in the world, serving the area of Smithfield, London's oldest meat market, which has existed for 1000 years. It was famous for wife selling in the 18th and 19th centuries and also martyrdom. William Wallace (or Braveheart) was hung drawn and quartered here and many protestant martyrs were burnt. It was also where Watt Tyler's peasant's revolt came to a head in 1381 amongst many other things! For St Bartholomew's church see my other video on Splendid Churches https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pCoV0E969_4 Then head over to ST John's Gate, the only existing remains of the Priory of the Knights of Saint John and then on to Clerkenwell Green where you will see The Clerks' Well and where Oliver Twist gets blamed for stealing a handkerchief!

Dick Whittington Stone - Joolz Guides - London
 
02:14
The Whittington Stone commemorates Dick Whittington (or Sir Richard Whittington) who was from the Forest of Dean in Gloucestershire. Click here for more videos like this: http://joolzguides.com SUPPORT MY CHANNEL ON PATREON ➜ https://www.patreon.com/joolzguides He was born some time in the 1350s and was sent to London to seek his fortune where the streets were said to be paved with gold. He managed to get an apprenticeship as a mercer (or cloth maker). There is a famous fairytale which has been turned into a successful pantomime about how Dick Whittington ran away from his cruel master and then go a job on a ship because his cat was very good at catching rats. Apparently this made him very wealthy and he ended up becoming Mayor of London. However, this is not true. Legend has it that he ran away from his master, Hugh Fitzwarren, and reached Highgate Hill when he stopped to rest his weary bones. He then heard the sound of the Bow Bell drifting across the fields which he thought were saying "Turn again, Whittington, thrice Mayor of London". So he did return to his master who was a wealthy mercer and he married his daughter and became very wealthy and successful. The monument on Highgate Hill called Whittington Stone features a cat simply because of the fairytale but there is no evidence that he had a cat. Dick Whittington did go on to become Mayor of London and by all accounts he was a good mayor. He was actually mayor 4 times and was considered very generous and charitable! (He was not Lord MAyor of London. The Lord Mayor is the Chief Justice Admiral and General and takes precedence over the monarch in some cases. The City of London having its own government separate from the monarch since Roman times. He had once lent money to King Henry V and when the king came to visit him he built a huge lavish fire with fragrant woods and spices and threw £60 000 worth of bonds onto the fire announcing that he was cancelling the King's debts, to which King Henry V replied, "Surely never had a King such a subject!" and Sir Richard Whittington (now knighted) replied, "Surely never had a subject such a king!" He built St Michael's Church (where he is buried) in the city, restored St Bartholomew's Hospital and had many aqueducts built. He even fined breweries if they served bad beer! He also rebuilt Newgate prison and prohibited the washing of animal skins in the river Thames by young apprentices because they would often die of cold. Not a bad set of achievements for someone who died aged 48!

Sweeney Todd the demon barber of Fleet St. - TOP 50 THINGS TO DO IN LONDON - London Guide
 
01:44
Contrary to popular belief Sweeney Todd, the demon barber of fleet street, really did exist! 186 Fleet Street, London, was the address of his famous barber shop where he had a chair which tilted back and sent people into the basement. Some say he slit their throats whilst shaving them and some say they were sent off to his girlfriend's pie shop to be made into pies! Born in Brick Lane, Sweeney Todd did a stretch at Newgate prison where he had a job in the prison barbers. On his release he opened a string of barber shops, the most famous of which was the one in Fleet Street. He continued his gruesome trade for some time stealing the personal effects of his victims but in those days even seeing body parts, or false teeth in jars wouldn't have been out of place in a barber's shop window as they offered services like wart removal and other treatments which they wished to advertise. Sweeney Todd aroused the suspicions of the judiciary finally when the smell of rotten flesh pervaded the church above the tunnel in which some body parts were left. The shop was watched and a man went in but didn't come out so when the police investigated they discovered the clothes of 160 victims and wondered whose they were. They then discovered a tunnel leading to his lover's pie shop but it was never proved whether she (Margery Lovett) turned them into pies on not. Sweeney Todd was executed in 1802. https://www.youtube.com/user/Joolzybaby https://www.facebook.com/joolzguides/ https://twitter.com/JoolzGuides http://takemetopitcairn.com/ http://joolz.tv -~-~~-~~~-~~-~- Please watch: "Tower of London to Wapping - London's Best Riverside Walk" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oZs1kkqWwU8 -~-~~-~~~-~~-~-

St Saviour’s Dock In the 18th century docks were so busy that cargoes remained on ships for weeks attracting pirates and if they got caught they would be hanged at this dock The river at this inlet was called Neckinger after devil’s Neckerchief which was cockney for the noose used for hanging pirates. This is also where Bill Sykes falls to his death at Jacbs Island in Oliver Twist and Fagin lives with his pickpockets. Cherry Garden Pier is where boats sounded their horns for Tower Bridge to open. Samuel Pepys bought cherries for his wife here too and The Fighting Temeraire by Turner was painted from here of a barge being taken to the breakers yard which is discussed by James Bond and Q in Skyfall. Outside the Angel Pub is the remains of a big manor belonging to Edward iii The Angel Pub was built by monks of Bermondsey Abbey and has trap Doors and piles over the river useful for smugglers. Captain Cook and Pepys drank here and Judge Jeffrys watched executions at execution dock from here. St Mary’s Rotherhithe Church Christopher Jones - Mayflower Captain is buried here (unmarked grave) The Mayflower was the ship that carried Pilgrim Fathers to the New World from here in 1620. Mayflower rotted beside the Pub and it used to be called the Ship Tavern. They probably used the ships timbers to rebuild the pub at The Mayflower It is also the only pub licenced to sell both English and American stamps. Brunel Engine House housed the machine which pumped out the water from the first underwater thoroughfare in the world. Now a museum tells story of the tunnel. In 1843 it was constructed by Marc Brunel who showed everyone how to do it after seeing a worm in debtor’s prison - he invented a special shield for digging. He was French and his wife Sophia escaped the French Revolution after fall of Ropesbierre and was supposed to be executed but escaped. He also disrespected Ropesbierre and was lucky to escape. He is buried in Kensal Green and his technique is still used today. The Thames Tunnel was supposed to take traffic but there wasn’t the money to pay for the proper entrances so it was a foot tunnel. Like everywhere it became popular with thieves and it was sold to the railway. You can still see the original arches in Rotherhithe Tube station.

Henry Poole & Co - BEST PLACES TO GO IN LONDON - London Guides
 
02:04
In this London guide Joolz guides visits Henry Poole in Savile Row which is famous for the invention of the tuxedo and one of the best places to go in London if you want a bespoke suit made. Learn about how Henry Poole came up with the idea and why it's called a tuxedo. In 1886 an American gentleman called James Potter met the Prince of Wales (later King Edward VII), and was invited to Sandringham. So Potter went to Henry Poole and asked what was appropriate and Henry said, "well we've just made on of these for the prince" and Potter wanted the same. When he went back to his club, The Tuxedo Club, just outside New York, he was the envy of all his peers.

Noses of Soho - TOP 50 THINGS TO DO IN LONDON - London Guides
 
01:44
http://joolzguides.com SUPPORT MY CHANNEL ON PATREON ➜ https://www.patreon.com/joolzguides On the side of Admiralty Arch is a curious proboscis. The soho noses are a bunch of noses poking out of walls dotted all over the west end of London in odd places. I'm not going to tell you where all of them are because you have to find them for yourself, and there's even one ear! Become rich: Legend has it that if you find all 7 of them you will become very rich indeed. My favourite of the soho noses is the one on Admiralty arch because it was said that it was put there as a snub to Napoleon but the truth is that the soho noses are actually a work of art by Rick Buckley who wanted to make a statement about all the cctv cameras everywhere. If you want to tweak the nose you have to be very careful because it's high up and you can get hit by a car. If you like this london guide leave a comment or subscribe to the channel!

Hampstead and its amazing history
 
15:19
John Constable Grave, Dracula and Peter Pan - The cemetery at St. John at Hampstead is the final resting place of many famous people.

In Bram Stoker's Dracula Lucy is entombed here also. Then you can walk up Church Row to see how a street might have looked in the 17th century as it hasn't changed! Louis Patisserie - In the 60s Louis Permayer opened his Hungarian patisserie in Hampstead and it still retains its original features today and a lovely selection of cakes! There are several nice pubs, my favourite being The Holly Bush, an old coaching inn. Goldfinger - at number 2 Willow Road is Erno Goldfinger's house. He was an architect who didn't get on with his neighbour Ian Fleming who based his most famous James Bond villain on him! You can even go inside as it's a museum. Julian McDonnell takes you on a beautiful and nostalgic walk around this beautiful village including Flask Walk, Well Walk,Whitestone Pond and all the places mentioned above which make a wonderful day trip from London.

Captain Bligh's Tomb
 
02:18
Captain Bligh's tomb is my favourite thing about the Garden Museum in Lambeth. There are actually two reasons why this church is special to me. The two main documentaries I've made are about The Mutiny on the Bounty and Pedlars. By chance there is a "Pedlars Window" in this church because a pedlar who did very well for himself once donated an acre of land to the church of St Mary at Lambeth on the condition that they remember him here. The pedlar's acre is now where County Hall stands, the irony being that if you try to peddle your wares there today you get closed down by the council. In the garden is Captain Bligh's tomb and he really was a remarkable sailor and navigator. He witnessed the death of Captain Cook in Hawaii and was more famously known as the captain who was set adrift in the Pacific Ocean by Fletcher Christian and a gang of mutineers in 1790. He managed to navigate his way back to Timor in the Dutch East Indies with just a sextant and his memory. There were 19 in the boat and he only lost one man to a savage tribe on an unfriendly island of Tofua. The maps he drew were still in operation until satellite navigation came in.

Shrunken Heads, Death, Prostitutes Vaginas - Viktor Wynd Museum
 
02:11
Weird places to see in London - Episode 50 Viktor Wynd's Museum of Curiosities is probably the most peculiar place you will visit and definitely one of the top 50 MUST SEE places to go and things to do in London. It is quite unlike any other museum as it has the influence of Viktor Wynd jumping out at you whoever you look. Vaginas of Victorian prostitutes in jars of formaldehyde, Amy Winehouse's poo in a jar, David Bowie's mullet and Russell Brand's pubic hair to name but a few of the oddities on offer. Viktor Wynd, the head curator is the chancellor of the Last Tuesday Society which started life at Harvard and no doubt found its way to London after Wynd studied fine art in Florida. They put on masked balls, danse macabres, art exhibitions and even seances and if you like you can do a cocktail class in the bar of the museum where they have expert mixologists on hand. Viktor Wynd is a dandy from a bygone age, belonging more in an 18th century gothic novel than modern times and feasts on invertebrates amongst other odd behaviour. I would definitely recommend his personal tour of the museum otherwise you might miss some of the eccentric and remarkable stories connected with each exhibit. Each and every one has its own story attached and you could listen to him for hours as he recites poetry and speaks of his artist friends like Sebastian Horsley crucifying himself. If you visit nothing else make sure you see this extraordinary place at 11 Mare Street, Hackney, London.

Where to Have Afternoon Tea in London - The Langham Hotel

Afternoon tea is a tradition that dates back to the 1850s when the Duchess of Bedford was feeling peckish. Now many hotels offer this aristocratic repast but the original one was The Langham Hotel so we went to have some tea there. There are different types of tea though. Afternoon tea, high tea, low tea etc. The Langham was the first hotel to have hydraulic lifts, running water and was therefore popular with the literati. Even today you still see famous famous in there, especially as it is right opposite the BBC broadcasting house. Don't forget to book in advance if you want tea because they do get very popular and you can even rquest books and games for the kids as well as fun cakes and sandwiches for children.

London History Walking Tour - Royal Greenwich

One of my favourite day trips in London is to Royal Greenwich - where east meets west and Old historical Royalty meets new modern art and innovation. Greenwich has been at the centre of the world for hundreds of years and you won't want to miss all these lovely places to see. First there’s the peninsula where you can see modern art by Anthony Gormley, Alex Chinnek and more, stretching all along The Line as far as the Olympic park. Take a trip up the River Thames to the place where Admiral Lord Nelson’s body was taken after the Battle of Trafalgar, Les Miserables was filmed and the first observatory in England was built by Sir Christopher Wren. Climb the O2 centre for spectacular views of London or see a global sporting event or music concert inside the dome. Take an Emirates cable car for wonderful views of the river or visit the Now Gallery for new and innovative art installations. You can even hit a few balls on the driving range or walk by the tree where Queen Elizabeth the first played as a child and King Henry VIII got married.

Villa di Geggiano - Excellent Chiswick Restaurant - London Guide
 
02:04
http://joolzguides.com SUPPORT MY CHANNEL ON PATREON ➜ https://www.patreon.com/joolzguides The True Taste Of Tuscany Comes To Chiswick. In this Joolz Guide Joolz takes his mum for a meal to do the acid test. His mother is Italian so she should know! The Villa di Geggiano has for more than five centuries, under the auspices of the Bianchi Bandinelli family, been renowned for superb hospitality and generosity – as well as delicious food and sumptuous wines. Located in Chianti at the heart of Tuscany and surrounded by vineyards and stunning gardens, it has a history of exporting mouth-watering wines to England – having been possibly the very first to bring Chianti here in 1725. Now, all the elegance, style and – most importantly, flavours – of that region are to be found in Chiswick High Street at the new Restaurant Villa di Geggiano, London. The menu features true Tuscan cuisine, with many of the ingredients being imported especially from the Villa and surrounding farms to the UK for the first time ever. Prepared with passion by a hand-picked crew, these maestros employ traditional techniques to recreate the essence of Siena. The care which goes into the menu is matched only by the attention to detail with which this landmark has been transformed into an elegant yet comfortable place to relax and enjoy good food, great wine and excellent company. As in Italy, creativity is very proudly prized at the Villa di Geggiano London. There will be guest chefs offering tastings of truffles as well as classic Italian ice cream. And creativity doesn’t stop at the kitchen ‘pass’. The restaurant welcomes all those with creative skills and talents. Space is offered on the walls for local artists to mount exhibitions, and there will be poetry readings and live entertainment. The Villa di Geggiano also features a Deli (which you walk past on your way into the restaurant). There, you’ll find wines, cheeses, cured meats, pastas and preserves imported especially from the Villa and local estates. Plus there’s an excellent selection of breads and pastries – all freshly made and all waiting to be devoured either in the café, or at home. And at the well-stocked bar, you’ll enjoy classic Tuscan cocktails, not to mention the glorious wines for which the region is renowned. All in all, the Villa di Geggiano is a little corner of Tuscany, right at the heart of W4.

David Kirkaldy was a Scottish engineer who pioneered testing standards after the industrial revolution and his famous machine sits in a listed building which was built especially for the machine. You can ask for them to test the strength of most items, bags, umbrellas, rope and they even smashed a grand piano in it! You can have a tour, a talk with a video and a demonstration with audience participation.

Watch the video to find out how this came about! Many people always wonder about the golden grasshopper on top of the Royal Exchange. The royal exchange was founded by Sir Thomas Gresham in order that merchants would have a place to do their business. In this video Joolz explains about this grasshopper and also the emblems outside the buildings on Lombard Street. -~-~~-~~~-~~-~- Please watch: "Tower of London to Wapping - London's Best Riverside Walk" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oZs1kkqWwU8 -~-~~-~~~-~~-~-
Roman Bath - Top 50 things to do in London - Joolz Guides
 
02:02
Just off Surrey Street near Temple Station in London is what they say is a Roman Bath. there is some debate as to its origins but it is certainly an interesting place where one unfortunate politician died, called William Weddel. Charles Dickens also mentions it in David Copperfield. In this 2 minute video guide Joolz visits the bath and some a job convincing his friend of its importance. You can even just look through the window if it is closed because you need to make an appointment to go inside.

Marshalsea Prison - London's Debtor's Prison

St George the Martyr and Marshalsea Prison Click here for more videos like this: http://joolzguides.com SUPPORT MY CHANNEL ON PATREON ➜ https://www.patreon.com/joolzguides Diary extract of a young boy named Charlie - 1827 15th July 1827 5.30am and I am awoken by a kerfuffle outside my rooms in Bermondsey. I had almost forgot that yesterday was Bastille Day and this commotion that stirred me was nothing more than the drunken revelry of a group of French workers who had no doubt failed to reach their homes after last night's festivities. It was just as well as I must up and away to work this very morn which is a shoe blacking factory at Hungerford Stairs. I have to work to help pay father's debts. And all because he couldn't pay his bill to the baker! He was only a fortnight late in payment! Nevertheless he has been locked up in Marshalsea Prison ever since. I must walk past it every day as a sick reminder on my way to London Bridge to cross to the north side and get to work by 6.30. 5.45 am and it is already light. The prison doesn't look as foreboding as I first imagined. Rather more like a university college, except for one imposing wall on the north side. I am certain that even if this prison were demolished (which I wish it would be) then this wall would remain as some gloomy reminder of times past. It does not seem fair that the wealthier convicts are allowed numerous privileges. Cells of their own, decent food, they are even allowed day release in order to work to pay off the debts they owe! Most of the prisoners here are debtors although some are political prisoners or guilty of crimes at sea. Less fortunate inmates like Father are crammed into squalid tiny rooms with up to nine others and there are fees to pay even in prison! Oh yes, if you want to eat you must pay and if you can't pay your debt and you can't pay your fees your sentence is increased! This is the injustice my father must suffer. How can he pay off his debt if he is not allowed to work? Hence my daily trudge to the shoe blacking factory at Hungerford Stairs. I am by no means the only child working there but I don't like it. It's long, hard work and the only person who is nice to me is a fellow by the name of Bob Fagin. I must try to remember him somehow and reward him for his kindness. 10.50pm - I am allowed to leave the factory and am so tired I can barely put one foot in front of the other. I have scarcely eaten but for a crust of stale bread and insipid broth. So begins the walk back, up the Strand and Fleet Street, past St Paul's Cathedral and thence to London Bridge and past The George Inn, where I catch sight of the French revellers who awoke me this morning. They are still in good voice and greet me as their neighbour. The imposing north wall of The Marshalsea Prison hoves into view and I can tell that the hour approaches 11pm by the clock face of St George the Martyr. In the cold dark winter mornings I am unable to tell the hour as the clock face facing Bermondsey is perpetually dark. Father and his friends refused to pay the taxes in protest about something or other to do with the running of the parish so, as a retribution, it was decided that all the dwellers in Bermondsey should not benefit from the church's clock. Before reaching home there is just time for me to drop into the church to say hello to our family friend Amy. Her name is Amy Dorrit but we call her "Little Dorrit". I find her sleeping by the fire in the vestry and she tells me that she hopes to get married here one day and that her dream would be to have a stained glass window to remember her. With scarcely the strength to reach my door, a kitchen chair beckons me and I am once again left to my slumbers with little hope that tomorrow will herald anything different.

York House Watergate - TOP 50 THINGS TO DO IN LONDON - London Guide
 
02:06
http://joolzguides.com SUPPORT MY CHANNEL ON PATREON ➜ https://www.patreon.com/joolzguides In this London Guide Joolz explains how the streets got their names and how the narrowing of the river caused York House Watergate to be isolated. "Of Alley" is a part of the name "George Villiers Duke of Buckingham" for example and there is also George Street, Villiers street and Duke Street. York House Watergate was a part of a grand estate belonging to the Duke of Buckingham who was said to be the lover of King James and fictionalized by Alexandre Dumas in The Three Musketeers. Joseph Bazalgette was assigned the task of narrowing the River Thames after the smells got so bad from the effluence that Parliament was disrupted. The lovely thing about the street names is that you can still see a road which was formerly called "Of Alley" which may seem rather strange. This is because all the streets were named after George Villiers Duke "of" Buckingham, although some have now changed. Find out more about Joseph Bazalgette and York House Watergate by watching Joolz Guides.

Highgate Cemetery and Pub Walk - London Walking Tour
 
12:46
Highgate Cemetery and Pub Walk - London Walking Tour, including ghost stories, train robbers and other quirky stories. Starting at Swains Lane called thus because of Pig herders from the 1300s driving swine down to Smithfields. Sightings of the Highgate Cemetery Vampire were common in Swains Lane which is also a cycling mecca because of one of the steepest gradients in London. The Beatles also had a famous photo taken here. Highgate Cemetery - opened in 1839 (one of 7 cemeteries Parliament decided on) is home to Michal Faraday, Karl Marx, George Michael and Malcolm McLaren. In the 1960s reports of blood drained animals and spectral sightings led to claims of a Highgate vampire. Pond Square also has ghost stories, but one about a chicken! It is also where Sir Francis Bacon died and where many famous people lived like George Michael, Kate Moss, Terry Gilliam and Ray Davies all very nearby. The Flask pub is a lovely inn. Hampstead was popular for its wells and you could buy flasks here back in the old days. Dick Turpin, the highwayman, hid here when fleeing from the law and Hogarth drank here. So did Byron, Shelley, Keats and Coleridge who lived over the road. There is also a ghost of a Spanish Barmaid which haunts The Flask. Other pubs include The Prince of Wales, Highgate Village, which has the hardest pub quiz in London! Highgate School was founded in 1565 and in the chapel churchyard is buried Peter Heyward, one of the Bounty Mutineers. The Gatehouse pub dates back to the 14th Century. The Bishop of London owned the park and the name Highgate comes from the gates which provided access to the park that stretched down to The Spaniards Inn. The gate house was the toll gate and is the earliest recorded building in Highgate. There’s a boundary marker here too. The Wrestlers is the oldest pub in Highgate still doing business. Drunk people came to settle differences and fight. They liked high points for some reason, perhaps because places like Highgate had so many pubs. 16 pubs in total in Highgate which started up because they were on the sheep herders trail to London and people would stop to take a rest at the highest point. Maybe for the view! The Wrestlers still have the Swearing on horns ceremony which even Lord Byron was famous for doing. "You must not eat brown bread while you can get white, except you like the brown the best. You must not drink small beer while you can get strong, except you like the small the best. You must not kiss the maid while you can kiss the mistress, except you like the maid the best, but sooner than lose a good chance you may kiss them both." You would then become a freeman of Highgate.
