A short film from the early morning after QEDCon in London, February. This is one of my favorite parts of the city – listening to the bells at St Paul’s Cathedral, walking across the Millennium Bridge and then down the Bankside Jetty to visit Shakespeare’s Globe.
Here you can see the wrought-iron gates, called the Bankside Gates. Each emblem is inspired by insects, animals and characters from Shakespeare’s plays and were created by the best blacksmiths from around the world.
A key to the emblems is featured here: Key To Motifs On Southwark Gates.
Finally – the paving stones around the Globe list sponsors features a joke by two members of the Monty Python’s Flying Circus, John Cleese and Michael Palin.
