This Has Really Got Up My Nose!

I love London – and it has some fine buildings. The Admiralty Arch being one of them. It is one of the highlights of Royal Events to watch processions passing through the central arch.

I am a little miffed that the Government has sold the lease to a Spanish Hotel Company. I do hope the Spaniards do not remove the nose [story here] even if many of the stories surrounding it are myth

  1. I was there in 1981...sadly no nose then.

  2. Oh I didn't know about the nose, must read that now- breakfast can wait, I'm sure...

  3. I don't like it, Angela...and I didn't like County Hall (the Greater London Council building on London's South Bank) being turned into a hotel/aquarium/McDonald's either, back in the 1980s!

  4. Oh dear. Will now it be called the "Something or Other Admiralty Arch"?

    Must read up on the Nose as I had not heard of it until now.
