Memories of Aylesbury, the Bull's Head Hotel c1965
My father was also the manager of The Bulls head hotel in the 1950s, Mr Ronald F Williams. At that time Sophia Loren was staying and she joined us for tea as my mother is Italian also, they had a good long chat. I remember sitting with my corgi called Kim in that front bay window looking at the people passing by. How lovely to see this fantastic old Hotel again and what a shame it's no longer there.
My father Bill Thomas was one of the last managers of the Bulls Head Hotel. He helped the police when they stayed at the hotel working on the Great Train Robbery.
