    Then, do visit the Design Museum. Which is in Shad Thames close to the Eco houseboats. They have good taste at the DM.

    Charles Dicken occupied rooms in the narrow dark house. He wrote 2 books here, one of which was - I understand - Great Expectations.

    Photos are not allowed in the exhibition, but I managed some crafty ones. All images are from NASA.

    I was just going to ask you about the Cutty Sark when I saw this post. I saw the pictures of the burned out hull and this restoration is nothing short of amazing. The only good thing about that fire is that the ship had been stripped of her fittings during restoration and were not on board during the fire.

    Did they have to add internal bracing to the hull to support it in the dry dock without keel blocks?

    Yes, she is supported on a system of 24 tubular lega and with tensioned stainless steel wires inside. The whole installation is non obtrusive.

    Can you see this from inside the ship? In the hold, maybe?
