Our Blackfriars escorts love a bit of history and there are few places in London which have as much as Blackfriars. Between the river Thames and Ludgate Hill was once the home of Montfichet tower and baynard castle. These huge fortresses were built in the 11th century in order to protect the lands that sat alongside the river, however they were owned by families who opposed the King at the time, King John. When the King foiled the plots to overthrow him, he exiled the Lords and destroyed their castles. The 8 acres of land were eventually sold to the Dominican Friars who built their new establishment, changed the location of the London wall and proceeded to host several important government occasions for the next few centuries. It is said that the divorce proceedings for Henry VIII and Catherine of Aragon were heard here in 1529, such was this buildings’ importance.
The area became known as Blackfriars due to the colour of the friars’ robes. From the moment they built their monastery, the area had its name. When Henry VIII dissolved the monasteries, the friary grounds and buildings were sold off although much of these burned down in the great fire of London. Tourists visiting the area can see a reconstruction of the original however it is said that a small section of the monastery was saved and is include in one of the walls. For those who love a bit of history, there are plenty of tours which tell of all sorts of plots and facts about the Blackfriars area. Why not spend the day in the company of one of our beautiful Blackfriars escorts learning about it together?
The original monastery dominated the entire Blackfriars area and had several buildings for the monks and guests. For the time, they were elaborate and exclusive so when they were sold off by Henry VIII, there were plenty of takers. One of the guest houses was sold to the society of apothecaries, one of the original livery companies in London. Despite the early doctors’ best efforts, this too was consumed by fire in 1666 although it was rebuilt after and today can be visited and enjoyed in all its splendour. Whilst others are doing the usual tourist routes, why not book a date with one of our beautiful Blackfriars escorts and arrange for a private tour around the Apothecaries’ Hall.
If you prefer your entertainment to be a little more up to date then you will find plenty of bars and restaurants in the Blackfriars area, however you will have to look closely as many of them are located in underground cellars or off small cobbled alleyways. This is one of the oldest parts of the city where buildings have stood since the great fire of London. Our escorts in Blackfriars have many favourite places they love to visit including the Copa De Cava, a bodega styled cellar bar offering Spanish delights or perhaps the Blackfriar with its art nouveau style. Voltaire is a wonderful cocktail and champagne bar for those who want to impress however our escorts Blackfriars are more concerned with their client’s enjoyment and pleasure than their own.
