Mr Monkey scampered down to the Embankment, where he found HQS Wellington. This is the headquarters of the Honourable Company of Master Mariners, and it was only open to monkeys because it was Open House London weekend. Mr Monkey thoroughly enjoyed his tour of the ship, and was surpised to find that they'd turned the engine room into a fine meeting chamber.
You can read about the Company at the Honourable Company of Master Mariners website, and about the Open House scheme at the London Open House website.
