When visiting London, don’t miss the British Library. A lovely building and the museum is a joy to any lover of the printed word. Among the many exhibits is the precursor of OneNote. Free entry, you don’t need a renowned ‘ticket’ to see the public areas and museum. Right next to Kings Cross/St Pancras Station, tube and buses run right past the front door.
