I have recently relocated from glorious South Wales to the Big Smoke; Londinium itself. Akin to the Washington D.C. page that I built up after an internship in an historic house, complimented by daily nerd-visits to museums, I have started to collect links to all the London sites on here. The museum visits won’t be quite daily (I’ve got a proper job working in collections! Huzzah!) but they should be regular, and so I thought I’d start a little collection of things to see and do in London. Again, as with the DC page, I’d like to get a map together at some point, but for now the list will do. Enjoy! Also, if you have any questions about London, do get in touch by leaving a comment on this page or the About Me page.
