Cockney

The term Cockney does not, as is often thought, mean a person from London's East End, but someone born within the sound of the bells of St Mary le Bow in the Strand. Traditionally, many Cockneys lived in Southwark. The cockney family of Dogget, and an introduction to cockney rhyming slang, are to be found in LONDON: 'Gin Lane'.




 

 

 

Did You Know?
Until World War II, France was on the same time zone as London. After occupying the country in 1940, Germany forced France to conform with Berlin time, and this change has never been canceled.
