Events in London - Thursday 9th January

Need some inspiration for 9th January? Admiral Nelson received a state funeral on this day in 1806, following his death at the Battle of Trafalgar. Why not go and see his tomb in the crypt of St. Paul’s Cathedral? And you can see the actual jacket he was wearing when he got shot at the National Maritime Museum.
