Be mock'd and wonder'd at

What visit to London would be complete without a cold drink outside Shakespeare's Globe?

Mocking on heaven's door

Down the hill from Windsor Castle, this Tudor*, at Eton (you know the place, it's the home to that finishing school for the born-to-rule) looks like it's on its last legs.

One thing you can say about Western Australia's Tudors, I suppose, is they sure don't build 'em like that any more.

Meet the Mockers

There I was, visiting Queen Elizabeth and her merry family of blueblood inbreds at Windsor Castle a few weeks ago, when I stumbled upon what at first looks like an absolute Mock masterpiece.

However, since Henry VIII's bones lie in a chapel not 200 metres away, I suspect this one may well be a real Tudor.
