It’s been a quiet weekend on the whole, bar a walk around Bloomsbury that you’ll read more about tomorrow, a quick visit to the British Museum and a few drinks at home on Saturday night. I’ve spent the majority of this weekend catching up with some favourite blogs and indulging in the ultimate pre-Christmas activity – circling the programmes I want to watch in the TV guide! Midsomer Murders, Mrs Brown’s Boys and celebrity University Challenge are all on my list.
A few Instagram snapshots from my weekend:

London museum of the week
The Charles Dickens museum is the only attraction that I’m aware of that is open in London on Christmas Day. The museum is a Georgian terraced property in Bloomsbury that Dickens called home between 1837 and 1839.
Tickets for the Charles Dickens museum on Christmas Day will set you back £18 but you will (supposedly) be transported back to Dickensian London for the price. Expect film screenings, authentic decorations and naturally readings of the author’s Christmas stories.
Cocktail of the week
Warm yourself up with a hot toddy.
- Transport for London have a new website in Beta. They are currently testing this nearby function.
- Wouldn’t commuting be better with Christmas decorations on the tube?
- Test your London transport knowledge with this quiz from the London Reconnections blog.
A bit transport heavy this week! I’m sure I’ll be back with more frivolous links next week.
