    The science history in this place is simply awesome. Get a chance to see a lecture here, chances are it will be fantastic. Look out for Bryson Gore, an experimental legend and fountain of knowledge

    Despite the fact the entrance is very unwelcoming, this place *is* open to the public. There's a great little museum in the basement with Faraday's scientific instruments and such

    The bar at the Ri is a fab place for a cocktail and a decent bite to eat. In the evenings you can get a lovely platter to share whilst at lunch time they do great British gastro pub style dishes.

    10 chemical elements discovered here; 14 Nobel Prizes. A simply stunning history. But also a very welcoming, modern place with cafe, bar, restaurant and museum if you can get past the stuffy facade.
