- Anne Boleyn?
- Crown Jewels?
You’re right, of course, but it’s so much more than that. Its traditions and value to the UK history are something that the Yeoman Warder (aka Beefeaters) manage to maintain to this day.Tags: Kids in Museums, London, Tower of London
Charlotte and I had a fun filled weekend in London.
After a lovely journey on Virgin Trains, we headed over to Bloomsbury Thistle Hotel. The last time we went to London we were a little disappointed in this hotel as the elevator and key lock stopped working. This time, they more than made up for it! The room was large, with all the amenities you expect and then some.
We barely put our bags in the gorgeous room before heading back out as we were meeting Laura Porter from GoLondon.about.com and her daughter A at the Science Museum to see the Hidden Heroes exhibition. The exhibition explores everyday items that we use almost everyday and invites you to think of where you’d be without them. Most of the items (if not all) have been mentioned in Justin Pollard’s book Boffinology (which is a brilliant book).Tags: #savelibraries, Covent Gardens, ice skating, museums, Natural History Museum, Science Museum, Tower of London, V&A
