#7

Is it a tourist attraction?


#8

are you going there and looking for things to do?


#9

Like Kew?


#10

Yeah, its either the Seed Vault or going to one of those Escape Room places.


#11

I went on a cruise with my parents to Svalbard a while back and they dropped us off in Ny Alesund for a whole day. We walked slowly around the entire town and it took us about an hour. We looked at every building so I’ve probably stood outside it


#12

I’d go seed vault, I don’t fancy going somewhere you’re expected to get back out of as soon as you can.


#13

SVALBARD GLOBAL SEED VAULT ROCK CITY!


#14

Wait ignore me, it’s in Longyearbyen. We went there too though, try and get a kebab from the most northerly kebab van in the world if he’s not packed it in and moved yet


#15

is this a protracted ‘i did yer ma’ joke?


#16

Driven past it


#17

Always been tempted to pop in but never bothered.


#18

No but I have been here! https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Millennium_Seed_Bank_Partnership

Lovely gardens too. Well worth a visit if you get the chance. I believe they do a lit lantern walk in the summer.


#19

Is this a new bistro in Hoxton?
