Holiday October 2013 - The Natural History & The V&A Museums

As ever a busy weekend at Mum & Dad's ... but I realise that I haven't put the last set of photos from my London trip up ... so, here goes!

On the Thursday late morning I headed towards The Natural History Museum ... I haven't been there for years.

I have always loved the film "One of our Dinosaurs is Missing" ... well, as you can see, this one is still here!

Whatever I thought about my actual visit you have to admit that the building is truly stunning.

Does Harry Dresden know that Sue is here!

Sadly, not my favourite of museums ... but I will go back, to really explore it. So I went next-door to my favourite museum ...
A music box!

They have some new plaster casts of effigies ... I have never seen one like this with the knight having his legs crossed.

There are more photos here ... yes, I do love the V&A

So that's my trip to London finished ... and already waiting for the next trip!
