It is one of my favourite places, especially so since the creation of Norman Foster's fabulous glass and steel roof in the Great Court. The roof covers a two acre space, with the reading room at it's centre, and is the largest covered public square in Europe.
The contents of the museum are overwhelming. We all went our separate ways after agreeing to meet up later at a cafe in the court.
I went upstairs to the Japanese galleries, away from the bustle of the most popular rooms. It is nice in a quiet space to be able to take one's time, to peer closely and to feel uninterrupted.
Such a fascinating and stimulating place. We had all enjoyed seeing different things and we talked about them on the bus going back to the flat.
