Mr Monkey caught a train to London and checked into the Russell Hotel. He scampered across Russell Square towards the British Museum. Outside the museum, he paused to look at the Museum Tavern. According to the Oxford edition of The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes, this might be the Alpha Inn from The Blue Carbuncle. Mr Monkey considered going in to see if he could buy a goose with a famous gemstone inside it, but Mr Rik pointed out that it wasn't actually a very good idea.
