Savoy

The Savoy, associated with Gilbert and Sullivan, remains one of London's most renowned hotels. But it began its life as the medieval palace of John of Gaunt. The story of the palace and the Peasants Revolt is told in the 'London Bridge' chapter of LONDON.




 

 

 

Did You Know?
The first Armistice Day observances, which included a two minute silence, were held in London at Buckingham Palace on the eleventh day of November 1919, exactly a year after the last day of World War I. That same day, in America, President Woodrow Wilson signed a proclamation commemorating the day as Armistice Day. In Britain, Canada and many other places, this date is now called Remembrance Day; in the US Veterans Day.
