For some unknown reason my computer uploaded these photos in a random order ... so they will get posted as they are!!

They are basically from 4 museums ... I tend to visit the 3 of them each time I am in London, but however many times I visit, there is always something more to see.  Sometimes because they have added new displays, sometimes because I am just more observant!!

The Science Museum had some sort of display on the sun, which you had to pay to enter ... this was how they were reminding people.

I stayed at a different hostel this time, and it was above a pub.  We had breakfast in the bar ... and couldn't resist taking this photo of part of their bar sign

I do love both the V&A and the Wallace collection - I remember that court mantua dress.
