We went to see their current exhibiton "Cotton to Gold" which I mentioned in a previous post but the building turned out to be as interesting as the exhibition.
The highlight of the exhibition was the books, from a rare Shakespeare Folio to exquisite Book of Hours. Like this one.
Their were coins, not something that usually grasps my attention but this caught my eye. A large but thin Charles the First £3 piece.
The staircase is decorated with carved characters from "The Three Musketeers", there is amazing carving everywhere. This is the most elaborate door to the "Ladies" I have ever seen. (It was quite grand inside too.)
We skipped the room with the taxidermy but I was amused by this.
We finished out day with a wander through Covent Garden and I don't like to end such a good day on a sad note but we spotted this little fellow.
