City of London’s Leadenhall Market is hosting a Corgi Cam pop-up as part of its Platinum Jubilee celebrations.
The Queen has owned corgis since she was 18, and has referred to her beloved stumpy-legged pets as family, so it’s fitting they too have a moment in the spotlight this Platinum Jubilee Bank Holiday.
The free event, which takes places on Wednesday, June 1, sees punters pose on a comfy sofa set up with a variety of backdrops to choose from and dress up in regal costumes including hats and tiaras fit for a monarch, and cosy up to the most royal of dogs.
Once Corgie Cam closes, visitors can delve deeper into the pomp and pageantry associated with the monarchy with a limited-edition walking tour through Leadenhall Market, which will be dressed up in Jubilee décor, purple crown bunting and quintessentially themed flowers.
Walking Tours take place every Wednesday, and throughout June they offer the opportunity to hear about Leadenhall Market’s early links with the monarchy of the 12th century, when it became an established market.
The walks will also look at the market and the City during the lasts 70 years and The Queen’s links with the development of the ‘Eastern Cluster’ of financial services towers that overlook Leadenhall Market, among other facts that might come in handy at your next pub quiz.
Corgi Cam is a free event and no booking is required.
Date: Wednesday, June 1
Cost: Free, unticketed
Address: Gracechurch Street, EC3V 1LT
