Tomorrow I am a lucky bunny. Two inside jobs. Strictly legal of course.
In the afternoon I am leading the public highlights of the British Museum tour for London Walks. We meet outside Holborn tube for 2.15. You give me money, £9 or £7 in you are a full-time student or over 65. You retreat to the shelter of the station. I stand out in the cold until it is time to head off and you follow me like lambs. Couldn’t be easier.
Then we spend two hours or so in one of the best museums in the world, dry and warm, up close and personal with more objects of desire than you could imagine in your wildest dreams. There’s even time afterwards for coffee and cake in one of the museum’s cafés, or some shopping, then you can head to a local hostelry for something stronger, or some fish and chips.
What could be nicer?
On Saturday, I’ll be pounding the streets come ice or shine leading another public walk, one of my own creations, Denmark Hill and Camberwell at 10.45 from Denmark Hill overground station.
I’ll write some more about that one in the week.
