Newest Review: ... our tickets told us to be there at 1pm, but we were half an hour late as we lost track of time whilst noshing on our burgers. Woops. Thankfully, this wasn't a problem. There was no queue, and we were ushered in the direction of a dark opening, towards the exhibition. Upon entering, a plaque told us that the bodies and body parts contained within are used with the permission of their ... more

Yesterday, my flatmate and I decided to visit the latest Body Worlds (BW) exhibition, the Mirror of Time, at London's O2 Arena. BW sells itself as a lesson in anatomy using real bodies.
