Who is looking forward to the new Renaissance?

From May 17th indoor hospitality reopens, including most of the U.K's amazing museums and galleries.

Almost a hundred years ago in 1922 Ada Salter became the Mayor of the then borough of Bermondsey. She was the first woman Mayor to be elected in London. Despite opposition she pursued a policy of greening the borough.
Her Beautification Committee planted thousands of trees, 10,000 tulip bulbs and built public baths, children's playgrounds and better, healthier housing.

@jparkersbulbs kindly donated another 10,000 tulip bulbs to local residents at the #bermomdseystreet festival, last year in Ada's honour.

This is our part of the picture. About to flower on #grangeroad. Thank you J Parkers and thank you Ada Salter. #ada100 #myjparkers

Is there any better view of London than from the top of a public bus?
Totally Tailored founder Charley is doing live-streamed virtual tours from the top of a double decker every Sunday. They are free to join and a great way to witness lockdown London.
The route changes each week and is only announced at the start of each 45 minute tour! Link to book in bio. Come ride with us!

Tomorrow marks the start of Women's History month.

Have you considered brushing up on your 'herstory'?

Jasmin and Totally Tailored have teamed up to develop a one-to-one fully interactive (and fun!) video call course on four amazing and historical women.

Four one-hour private video call sessions with Jasmin can be worked out around you or your kids' schedule. And as no two learners are the same, your course content can be #totallytailored
to you.

NB: For those who joined my 'Live', the fountain intruder was escorted to safety by police just after our tour and just before this photo was taken.

Props to @terrydougherty1 for his impromptu ditty!

Charley is bringing the outdoors indoors with regular virtual tours of London.

These are live, roaming (that is Charley walks through London she presents) and she interacts with a live chat feature too.

2020 was a challenging year for us and many others. But we're grateful for the unique lessons it has taught us and the amazing support of all our followers.

Here's to a bright and expansive 2021!

Always something new to see at Borough Market. ...

Did you know that during a day London's River Thames goes up and down up to 25 feet?

At low tide these muddy 'beaches' are exposed. Weird and wonderful things can be found which all tell a story about the city's 2000 year past.

Our most modern discovery today was this half buried and battered #Santander hire bike, known to Londoners as a 'Boris bikes' after the Mayor who instigated them.

New *Virtual Tour* announcement!

This Wednesday 2nd December at 2pm founder of Totally Tailored, Charley will be giving a virtual live streamed tour of this - her favourite stretch of the river Thames.

This 30 minute tour is free to join from anywhere in the world.

See bio for link to book.

This picture was taken this morning by @stinkmonebuttshaw and features just one of the delights you'll encounter with Charley on this virtual 'London Bridge to Tower Bridge' tour.

Travel may have stopped, but we haven't.
