K-On - The British Museum

In the K-On movie they visit the British Museum, so I also went there.

This Rosetta Stone replica is inside the Enlightenment Gallery (room 1).

I also had a look at the real Rosetta Stone in room 4.

These toilets are located near room 12 and the gallery café.

Near the museum is also Denmark Street that is shown in the movie.

In this street there's tons of music shops, including Hank's Guitar Shop.

The store window was shown in the anime. I've marked a path from the British Museum to Hank's Guitar Shop in the map below.

The insides doesn't match though.

The interior shots are supposedly based on another guitar store named Rockers that's been closed down. I found a similar looking shop for this shot at least.
