Fascinating fact!

Stand on Embankment pier and look to your right and you will see the so called 'Cleopatra's Needle'. Actually nothing to do with Cleopatra, it was gifted to the UK in 1819 by Egypt to commemorate the defeat of Napoleon Bonaparte. It had a tough journey over here and was close to sinking when a rescue boat was sent out. Unfortunately treacherous weather overturned the rescue boat and 6 crew lost their lives. Their names are inscribed on a plaque at the base of the pillar.

    “Apologies for the delay in getting back to you (I've had a couple of days off to recover), but just to say everything went really smoothly and, as I'd hoped, the trip up the Thames was a perfect thing to do following a day of intense presentations and discussions.  The staff were great and really helped set the atmosphere.”
