My 11 year old and I loved this museum. Not overly familiar with the history of London, it was great to walk through the displays and get a good picture of life in the city and its major events and catastrophes. We spent about an...More

We liked this museum and spent about an hour there. It was informative and interesting but not exciting (as if a museum needs to be that). So we spent our time, learned quite a bit, then took the tube home.

Very well thought out museum, I felt like I was walking around London of old, travelling through time with the clothing & transport exhibits. Thoroughly enjoyable day out, and definitely something for everybody.

The museum, in chronological order takes you through the long and wavering history of London, from amazingly preserved neolithic tools, right up to Vespas and the Spice girls. This museum isn't one of those 'lets dress up a freaky mannequin and that will do' sorts...More

City of London
From its ancient past as a Roman trading outpost to
its 21st century status as the wealthiest square mile
in the world, the financial district known simply as
“The City” is one of London's most historic and
fascinating neighbourhoods. Here high rise office
towers such as Norman Foster’s Gherkin mingle with
Roman ruins and architectural marvels from virtually
every era in between, including Christopher Wren's
