The British Library and the British Museum


Our final day in London began with a trip through Kings Cross Station (to see the 9 3/4 Platform to Hogwarts) on our way to The British Library. There is a permanent exhibit of amazing printed documents in all areas of interest from music to politics to religious works.

We then went to The British Museum to see the Rosetta Stone, the Elgin Marbles (from the Parthenon in Athens) and a number of Egyptian items.

We took a ride on the London Eye with amazing views of the city including Parliament and Big Ben,then headed off to our Farewell Dinner at the Ebury Wine Bar. We traveled with a great group of people, sharing our interests and experiences along the way. Our guide was witty, knowledgable and wonderfully caring and inclusive. We loved our trip to London and look forward to visiting again.
