We usually go on a wet day. Indoor window shopping. Art & book shop - fabulously laid out. The kitchen shop is ultimate window shopping - great look but don't touch and the prices - OUCH!

It wasn't memorable at all for us. We had been wanting to go for a couple of years and when the opportunity came we were disappointed. In fact I can't remember much about it at all.

Not a huge lot to see. We did the entire building and the surrounding area in probably less than two hours, taking our time. Then we moved on to the BBC Museum which is not far away. We were staying in a Hotel in the centre... More
