A Memorable Museum

Last Saturday saw a fine body of Marketors assembled for a memorable private tour of the London Museum. This is the world's largest urban history museum with over 1.1 million exhibits

                                      The Roman Gallery                                   

The Museum has been completely redesigned and extended and now has nine galleries  of which five were opened in the summer last year. With only a morning available we did not see all 1.1 millon exhibits! But split into two groups with a guide each we were taken to see hand picked exhibits beginning with London before London; then Roman London, Medieval London; through the plague and great fire of London on through the expansion of the City in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries until we reached Victorian London and then from the turn of the last Century up to today. An absolutely fascinating tour leaving everyone wanting more.

In traditional style we then repaired for sustenance after such an arduous morning. A private area had been reserved for us in the Concerto Restaurant within the new New Exchange complex round the corner from the Museum, where a splendid lunch was consumed leaving those free for some retail therapy to explore the rest of New Change.
