On our visit to London last week, we went to the London Film Museum – I never knew it was there either – it’s in the old County Hall Building next to the London Eye. It’s like museums used to be before they got all glitzy – dark and dusty. It really was wonderful, like wandering about in a giant attic, and was full of discarded props from famous movies. We loved it and there was about 6 people in the whole place. There was quite a lot of Harry Potter props and, of course, my favourite was Ron Weasley’s hand knitted sweater. I reckon eagle-eyed knitters could make a pattern from this picture and knit a similar one. It looked like it was made from double knit weight yarn.
My daughter was most impressed by the Tri-Wizards cup also from Harry Potter and Charlie Chaplin’s Hat and Cane. I liked the Original Dr Who Tardis and Daleks which really looked like they were “home made” and Mr Bean’s Suit. I highly recommend a visit.
