Classical v Modern...

I will whisper this to you: I visited the British Museum on Saturday for the first time.

Is it shameful considering I have lived in London my entire life?

The classical pediment above the entrance is familiar despite never having been there before.

Walking through the doors, my breath is taken away by the rotunda and glass ceiling of the Great Court.

The mix of classical and modern sit together perfectly.


  1. It is a magical place - hope this won't be the last visit!

  2. Oh! But I want to know what you saw when you were there! How tantalising...

  3. Beautiful, thanks for sharing. It's funny, we travel all over, but don't visit what is in our own backyard.


Hi! Thanks for leaving me a comment, I really enjoy reading them and I will try to reply if I can find an email address for you...
