Unusual museums day; Huntarian and John Soane's Museum, with lunch

EXPECT THE UNEXPECTED


10.45 - 11.20   Meet for coffee and social at The Edgar Wallace pub, just off the Strand. 


Named after the crime-writing regular, the Edgar Wallace has coped well with the demise of nearby Fleet Street. Much of its daytime trade now comes from the Royal Courts of Justice, and the legal trade’s patronage helps to ensure standards remain high.

Framed mementos upstairs tell of the time when Wallace ran a writers’ club there, while the hallway contains a potted biography of the man. 



11.25 - 12.25  Huntarian Museum


12.30 Lunch at Lincoln Inns, Fields Restaurant - We get a 10% discount

14.00  Booked our group into John Soames Museum- EXPECT THE UNEXPECTED.


If you've not been before, quite simply, trust and come along and be prepared for a surprise.


No words can adequately describe this museum!   Guides in each room/

Coffee and social after if anyone fancies

Meetup fee: £3

    Very unusual indeed never quite see a museum like it, most interesting items on display if a little macabre, and the video of the brain operation was fascinating, I just couldn’t stop watching, trouble is I now know what’s done!!!!!

    Hi Dee,
    I'm really sorry but I cannot make it tomorrow. I have to go into work to cover one of my colleagues who has become very ill. I hope to meet you and everyone else very soon. Sandra

    Really looking forward to attending first meet-up. Visited Sir John Soane museum about a year ago, but had splitting headache so didn't really enjoy. Hoping for better luck tomorrow.

    Would it be ok to bring my grandson, 6 years old, along to the museum visits?

    • Dee K.

      Maroulla, I think no on this occasion but once you see where everything is you could take him yourself some time.
