London Bridge

Though London Bridge makes many appearances in LONDON, from Roman times onwards, it is the central focus of the 'London Bridge' chapter, set in the high Middle Ages of Chaucer and the Black Prince, when, supporting two rows of gabled houses, it was at the height of its glory, and witnessed many scenes, including the Peasants Revolt.




 

 

 

Did You Know?
The first escalator England had ever seen was installed at Harrods in London on November 16th, 1898 to much fanfare, fascination and fear ! The moving staircase was such a strange and scary experience for people that Harrods began offering smelling salts and Cognac at the top in order to calm people after their terrifying ride.
