Wednesday - day 5 (continued)
Leaving Harrods, we took the Tube to Holburn Underground Station. On our walk over to the British Museum, we stopped in Bloomsbury Square Gardens and enjoyed the strawberry flan from Harrods.
I had toured the British Museum during my first visit to London in 2002, but Linda had never been there before. With over seven million objects in the museum, it is one of the largest collections of antiquities in the world. We couldn't begin to see all of the British Museum in one visit, but we did enjoy seeing monuments, sculptures and ancient inscriptions such as the Rosetta Stone and Elgin Marbles, as well as the new Sir Harry & Lady Djanogly Gallery of Clocks & Watches.
We also made a couple of serious rounds of gift shopping in the British Museum gift shops.
