Another Tulkinghorn exclusive. Well, not exactly. To be fair, the following astonishing revelation was made by Time Out in its recent feature 'London's 100 Best Kept Secrets'. Apparently, one of those best-kept secrets is magic circle firm Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer. Finally, the world wakes up to the allure of Alan Peck. On closer inspection, however, it seems that tourists are being directed to the firm's Fleet Street offices to see a rare 13th century crypt, the sole relic of a huge Carmelite priory that once occupied the site. The crypt, which was only rediscovered in the late 19th century after being used as a coal cellar, writes Time Out, has a small door in its west wall, which may have led on to a secret passage leading to a clandestine exit. So, Tulkinghorn is sorry to disappoint those Freshfielders thinking that their fifteen minutes had arrived, being greeted at work with a flurry of camera flashes from Japanese tourists. Fear not though, as Tulkinghorn already has plans for a little sideline upon his retirement - The Great Law Firm Tour. Starting at Bishopsgate, this would weave its way around the City, past Herbies, round to Ashursts and Shearmans, back down past Watson Farley and then on to Richards Butler via Petticoat Lane and away.
