British Museum

I spent the weekend in London meeting up with my daughter who had a 3 day stopover whilst transiting from Canberra to Washington. I spent Saturday afternoon in the British Museum - I make a point in visiting there every time I'm in London. The clear blue sky really showed off the Great Court.

Re: British Museum

I came to this the 3rd of your threads.
I was beginning to suspect a break away.
Fine sets of shots. Some good strong geometric pictures.
I've heard the British Museum roof leaks. I wonder if the Gherkin does too.

I've often fancied visiting many things in London. The shame is they are in London.

Re: British Museum

Thanks Dave and Duncan.
There's no worries of me moving down to London - I don't think they'd have me. I do enjoy a visit though - particularly to the museums. The Sir John Soanes Museum in Lincoln Inn Fields is an amazing display of one man's passion for collection. I most enjoy wandering through the British Museum though I do wonder if we should petition the curators for a change in display


I would however return the Elgin Marbles and of course the Lewis Chessmen - I can't get a decent shot of them because of all the sticky fingered glass

Hi Duncan, I love London, it has so much to offer for tourists from my side of the ocean but so does Edinburgh that I have visited three times. There seems to me to be more interesting places in the UK that show our (Canadian) history or should I say where history began for us. The castles, the cathedrals, the small towns and villages with their own charm and then I look at what we have to offer and it bales with the UK except that we have so much land, huge lakes, great mountains mixed with all the cultures that have immigrated to our side of the pond. I look forward to revisiting London this May with anticipation of meeting a lot of the people from this site that have indicated they may come down for a meet.

Re: British Museum

I often walk through here if I have the odd hour to kill before meeting my friends for a pint in the West end.

I find you can do one area or room at a time like this.

Also reminds me of when we had an E system day out here some years ago.



Well worth the visit.

Re: British Museum

Really good shots, particularly the second. You should visit more often.
