  • V & A – If you are an art lover then you simply cannot visit London without taking a trip to V & A. this museum houses a truly magnificent collection of decorative art. The British Galleries 1500 – 1900 are a particular highlight.
  • Natural History museum – This museum contains over 70 million specimens of mineral, plant, rock, animal and fossil. That’s right; 70 million!!!

Most museums in London are free. However, you don’t need to spend your whole time exploring museums in order to have a fun-filled vacation. There are lots of things to do whilst in the city. You can take a trip to Somerset House. This Georgian building is a vision; elegance at its finest. If you are looking for an unusual day out then the Barbican Centre can provide this. From hidden gardens to baffling walkways; there is nowhere else like it. St Bride’s Church is another place you may want to add to your list. The church dates back to 1672 and its famous steeple is actually believe to have inspired the first tiered wedding cake. Or what about the British Library? Quirky yet brilliant!

So there you have it; if London appeals to you then there are plenty of fantastic things to do to make sure you get the most from your trip.
