Tired of London, Tired of Life - A website about things to do in London

4 June 2012

See the Diamond Jubilee Beacons

As another way to mark this weekend's orgiastic celebration of leadership-by-birthright thousands of Jubilee Beacons will be lit around the UK and the Commonwealth this evening, including many in London.

For South Londoners, a number of beacons are being lit with a possible highlight being the one by the Friends of One Tree Hill, which if your author has read it right will be lit at 10.26pm, whilst for North Londoners a beacon will be lit at Kenwood House at 10.01pm, because that is a place where a member of the aristocracy once lived and is therefore deemed more important than a public park.
