The British Museum
The British Museum was originally set up in 1753 and the first building was opened in 1759. The Museum was based on the collection of Sir Hans Sloane and has continued growing since the eighteenth century. The current collection is housed in a neo-classical building completed in 1852, located in Central London. The new Great Court was opened in the year 2000, with the central court of the Museum having a glass ceiling. The Museum houses collections from every continent. The Museum is most famous for the Rosetta Stone and the Elgin Marbles. The collection also includes numerous Egyptian mummies, Greek and Roman artefacts and the treasure from the Sutton Hoo burial. Entrance to the Museum is free. The Museum is open every day from 10 until 5.30 with later opening on Thursday and Friday. The Museum also has a programme of special exhibitions, which usually involve a charge for entrance. The Museum is also available for research and school visits.
King's Cross Station
King’s Cross Station, together with the adjacent St. Pancras Station and the Tube connection that serves them both, is part of a major transportation hub in Central London. Trains in and out of King’s Cross provide long-distance travel up and down eastern England through Newcastle and York and into Scotland. They also provide commuter service for London’s northern suburbs. Located at Euston Road and York Way, the Victorian-era station was designed by Lewis Cubitt and opened in 1852. Main features of the original construction include a 120-ft brick clock tower and two 70-ft high vaulted train sheds that now shelter Platforms 1 through 8. Platforms 9 through 11 are housed in a later (and less elaborate) addition built to accommodate commuters. King’s Cross takes its name from a short-lived and unpopular monument to King George IV. Urban myth also associates the site with Boudica, the warrior queen of ancient Britain, who many believed is buried near the present-day location of Platform 9 or 10. More recently, the station is notable for the fictional Platform 9¾, which services the Hogwarts Express in a series of popular children’s books by J.K. Rowling.
Liberty of London
Liberty of London is a luxury department store in the centre of London which epitomises traditional English style with particular emphasis on the Art Nouveau and 'Arts and Crafts' movements of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The firm was founded by Arthur Lasenby Liberty in 1875, originally as a shop selling fabrics, objets d'art and ornaments from the Orient. Since then the store and the Liberty brand has evolved into one of the world's most distinctive and recognisable style movements, characterised by the Liberty print fabrics. The building is an iconic black and white neo-Tudor Arts and Crafts movement building whose architectural significance is recognised by its Grade 2 listing. The layout of the store is rich in original features and shows the style that was typical of late Victorian era stores. There are several high atria surrounded by wooden balconies and the store has original decorative lifts rather than escalators. The store is open daily: Monday to Saturday from 10am to 9pm Sunday noon to 6pm.
Located in London's district of Soho, Carnaby street is close to both Oxford Street & Regent Street. The street became famous in the "Swinging 60's" when "mods" flocked to Carnaby Street for its independent record shops, boutiques & designers such as Mary Quant. Carnaby Street is now more mainstream, offering (higher end) high street chains & restaurants, but still very popular with young shoppers & tourists. Liberty's famous department store is close by. The nearest underground station is Oxford Circus.
