Giles' World No. 10: The British Museum shop

The world at your fingertips

  • Where: The British Museum Shop

  • What: Art prints, accessories and homewares inspired by ancient artefacts.

  • Why we love it: The British Museum shop is where wonders of the antiquities are translated into stuff you can remove from the building without getting arrested. Where else could you find an ornamental Viking helmet, Athenian owl coin cufflinks and Egyptian mummy pencil case all in one place?

  • Discover: Great Russell Street, London, WC1B 3DG
