With this week’s Business Travel News being the monthly cruising edition we thought we might mention a rare open day at Trinity House, close by the Tower of London. Saturday 17 May 10:00-15:00.
Trinity House is the general lighthouse authority for England, Wales, the Channel Islands and Gibraltar, responsible for the provision and maintenance of navigational aids, such as lighthouses, lightvessels, buoys, and maritime radio/satellite communication systems. Trinity House is also an official deep sea pilotage organisation, providing expert navigators for ships trading in Northern European waters.
First granted a Royal Charter in 1514 by King Henry VIII the present building dates from 1794 and houses valuable paintings and antiques from the nation’s remarkable nautical heritage. Reflecting the on-going patronage of the Crown, the current Master of the Corporation is HRH The Princess Royal, filling a role held in former centuries by, amongst others, the diarist Samuel Pepys, the Duke of Wellington, William Pitt the Younger and, more recently, The Duke of Edinburgh.
It is available for private hire on an exclusive use basis and throughout the year is a popular venue for prestigious corporate and social occasions and is licensed for weddings and civil service ceremonies. www.trinityhouse.co.uk
