The Monday Photoblog… Wimbledon Off-Season

DC Editor Adam Scott-Goulding writes…



Monday is ALMOST mute here on The Daily Constitutional. I always launch the week with a few London photos, grouped on a theme or neighbourhood.


This week: A few shots from Wimbledon as we don't see it on the TV - off-season, in the dead of winter.

I snapped these pics a few years back on a visit to the fantastic All England Club Lawn Tennis Museum.

Wimbledon begins next Monday 1st July 2019…


I could look at that scoreboard all day long

The Monday Photoblog will return next week. In the meantime, if you'd like to share a London photo with me, please do! Perhaps you joined me on a tour and snapped a great shot. Drop me a line.

A Busy London Day From West To East

Adam writes…

Midsummer Day 2019 has been a great London day to be a tour guide.

It began with The Changing of the Guard in the company of some German students…



My footage is not the best, but the music is spectacular. The Band of the Brigade of Gurkhas, Nepal's finest, playing Scotland the Brave at double march time.

The day ended on an open top bus with a Midsummer Night's sunset over Shoreditch

Ascot In Numbers

Karen Pierce-Goulding writes…

It was a bit of a bunfight getting in to Windsor Castle on Monday morning this week –  on the first day of the races at Royal Ascot. 



It reminded me of the inimitable Alan Jay Lerner’s take on the English Aristocracy in My Fair Lady 🎼 What a smashing, positively dashing spectacle the Ascot Opening Day! 🎼








Here’s a round-up of Ascot in numbers…

Something in the region of 279,000 people will attend Royal Ascot

Ascot has more private boxes that any other sporting facility in Europe – 222

330 Chefs will be on duty

The Bar Bill:

51,000 bottles of champagne
125,000 glasses of Pimms
174,000 pints of beer


Which will be mopped up by…

5,000 kilos of salmon
7000 Cornish and Folkestone crabs
2,900 lobsters
2,400 kilos of beef sirloin
3,700 rumps of English lamb
10,000 Angus steaks.
