British Museum - The Great Court

Not exactly a haven of peace and quiet, but a very good place to meet, if not a place to tarry for too long, particularly at busy times. The glass covered courtyard meets all the basic needs: toilets (muzac-free, I think, but correct me if I am wrong) and somewhere to sit and have a coffee and snack. And, if you arrive early, you can slip through thee Portland Stone porticos into the wonderful galleries (the fourth, South, portico is, notoriously, of the wrong stone). The light under the huge glass roof can be extraordinary enough to warrant the visit.
