The British Museum was open yesterday evening until 6.00 p.m. Even then, they did not appear to be in a hurry to get people out. The shops were open late in the city as well, but it was a bit surprising that so many people wanted to take advantage of the Museum being open late.
We caught a bus to Victoria from near the Museum and it was interesting to see the crowds in the streets. The more expensive stores such as Selfridges were brightly lit up, we are not sure if this is normal or because of Christmas.
As it was getting late we had a meal in town before heading home on the train. We canvassed the options at Victoria Station. There is a shopping and restaurant mall to one side of the station and there we checked out a variety of options, but settled on a French style cafe. They had a good 2 course option, which we shared. The food was tasty and plentiful and the service was excellent.
I took a couple of photos of the Camera Cafe, plus a few in and around the Museum.
We don’t have anything planned today (Saturday), but might do some shopping later. It’s probably not that bad outside but it looks very wet and windy from our apartment.
