Economist's Walk in London

The website of the 2005 Econometric Society World Congress at UCL describes five walks for economists through London. For instance

The [third] walk starts at the Hunterian Museum (entrance free, closed Mondays) inside the Royal College of Surgeons on the south side of Lincoln’s Inn Fields (1). Here can be seen the preserved left hemisphere of Charles Babbage’s brain (in Gallery 4 on the lower floor). Babbage, best known for his role in the history of computing, also wrote innovatively on the economics of production.
