    These guys saved our lives at the Post station & at St. Ermins Hotel by diffusing a bomb which they blew up in the special container. I am forever thankful! Instead of picking on people, they work!

    I was informed by the door guard that the Crime Museum is not open to public in general. He said I should send an email to try to schedule the visit, but it was my last day in London.

    This is the old Scotland yard, now a climate change office

    Roland Biggerstaff · June 26, 2011

    The famous Metropolitan Police headquarters stood here between 1829 and 1890. The name is believed to derive from lodgings on this site used by visiting Kings of Scotland.
