We took the Tube to King's Cross Station. While we didn't get the picture of Platform 9 3/4, we did get one of the outside of the station. Yes, we're geeks.

From there we walked to the British Library. The Magna Carta was fascinating and Patti was really excited to see Jane Austen's writing desk, a copy of Persuasion in Jane Austen's handwriting, and Jane Eyre in Charlotte Bronte's handwriting.

After that we took a bus to the British Museum and had lunch at the Museum pub across from the museum.

We also toured the Enlightenment gallery. Patti found a tea set that matches her corn mug.

We spent the evening shopping in the Oxford Circus area, and then took our third Original London Walk, "Ghosts, Gaslights, and Guinness".
