The tour of the British Museum that RS suggests is about 2 hours in length. The museum website indicates that they offer a "Blue Guide" tour that is 90 minutes long, cost is 8 GBp. The cost is not a concern. We are taking our kids (12 and 16). They can't wait to go see items they have learned about. Is this tour worth going on? How much time would you actually plan for seeing the highlights of the museum indicated in the RS London book?
As for the British Library, how much time would you plan for seeing the exhibition gallaries? We want to see the Magna Carta (I understand one of them is off display right now)and items shown on the map on p.213 of the London book (2007). RS says it takes an hour, is that reasonable?
We have a train leaving from Kings Cross between 12 and 2 (will get tickets in 3 weeks when they become available). Can either of these sites be reasonably done prior to our train?
Thanks for you help,
