What we're about
Upcoming events (2)
We will visit the British Museum, controversially home to the Elgin Marbles and the Rosetta Stone.
This is the UK's most celebrated museum, and indeed the world's first public museum. The Great Court is a fantastic piece of architecture and the Museum is packed with some of the world's most beautiful and incredible exhibits: all house in an incredible setting.

You must book your visit with the Museum here:
The British Museum is free to visit. Meet at the totem poles in the Great Court at 10:00 on Saturday, December 4th.
On arrival, we will head straight to the Parthenon Marbles.
We visit Southall on December 18th.
Southall is one of the world's most distinctive neighbourhoods.
Located in the borough of Ealing, Southall can fairly be called an enclave of London, overwhelmingly populated by Indian and ethnically Indian residents.
According to Wikipedia:
"From the 1950s the town's local factories and proximity to Heathrow Airport attracted large numbers of Asian immigrants; the town eventually became home to the largest Punjabi community outside the Indian subcontinent and is today a major centre of South Asian culture, having gained the nickname Little India."
We will visit the modern temple on Havelock/Guru Nanak Road before enjoying some authentic cuisine and the delights of Southall's market and high street.
The Gurdwara is a fantastic piece of architecture.
Don't leave London before you've seen Southall.
You should be at Southall station for 11am. Bring comfortable footwear for walking, your appetite and a willingness to experience Indian culture and society, right here in London.
