Visited at a friend's suggestion and we were blown away by the beauty and quantity of the silver on display and on offer. Whether a serious buyer, or just a looker, this is well worth a few hours of your time while in London!

You can spend half an hour having a look around, if you like silver. It's not just jewelry, in fact that's just a small part of it. It is deep under ground, with amazingly thick doors!

“The City” is one of London's most historic and
fascinating neighbourhoods. Here high rise office
towers such as Norman Foster’s Gherkin mingle with
Roman ruins and architectural marvels from virtually
every era in between, including Christopher Wren's
