The Vikings exhibition is open at the British Museum. It’s expensive, there’s a big queue, and when you get in it’s packed with people. But it has brought together some amazing stuff. This is an iron and silver sword hilt found in Dublin which is 1100 to 1200 years old.

These flats are in Ming Street. The street names of old Chinatown live on just behind Canary Wharf. There were once opium dens here, mentioned in the writings of Conan Doyle (Sherlock Holmes), and Dickens.
Let’s civilise London. I found this No toilet poster at Canada Water station which is an interchange of two train lines. There is a similar poster at West Ham which is an interchange of three different lines. At key stations like these I think there should be facilities for customers. Why deliberately make life hard for people? Let’s make this city a joy to use and navigate. Wake up Boris.
Free exhibition under Centre Point, London.
