Natural History Museum

Wow! Today's adventure was just another museum - or was it. The museum has seen a few changes since I last visited and today is in a league of its own when it comes to excitement factor for young minds. 

Once again entry was free for everyone - a very cheap excursion.  The first stop was the Dinosaur exhibition which blew us away, it was totally amazing. This was followed by the Mammal exhibition, a stop for lunch then the Earth Treasury (rocks, minerals and gemstones), the Creepy Crawlies and finally the Earth dome which included a volcano and earthquake exhibition.

A totally knackered biscuit bunch spent what was left of the afternoon in the Princess Di Memorial park, a cool kids playground at the Bayswater end of Hyde Park.

Tower of London

Damn this blogging business is hard work. I am falling behind schedule so apologies if this seems rushed.  Our adventure for Wednesday was the tower..  we were told this would take the best part of a day to get through and it did. The highlight was without doubt the Crown Jewels, these days you get a good close up look. No photography allowed unfortunately.

We hung around to join the beefeater tour.. which was well worth the 15 minute wait. Then we set off to the tour the many nooks and crannies available for public viewing. It was cool.
