Somewhat irked about this as I only found out yesterday – because my tracking software broke – but the Royal Navy Frigate, HMS Westminster is visiting London for a week, but leaves on Monday morning.
Sadly, unlike when its sister ship, HMS St Albans visited London last year, the general public can only look at it from the dockside and not go on board – but if you are in the area, it is still quite an impressive sight.
Doubly irksome was that they carried out the Ceremony of the Constable Dues on Friday afternoon at the Tower of London which I have been wanting to photograph for several years (glares at the Tower’s PR department).

SUPPORT THIS WEBSITE
This website has been running now for over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, it doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.
It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.
Whether it's a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.
