London City Airport Car Hire

Airport Car Hire

One of the most visited cities in the world, London is home to an absolute wealth of famous attractions, including many world-class museums. Increasingly interactive, curated at the highest level, and often free to enter, they offer some of the best ways you can spend time in the city, especially when it’s ‘London weather’ outside. While it would be impossible to list them all, here are three gorgeous museums of London:

  • Horniman Museum and Gardens. Situated in the Forest Hill area of South East London, Horniman is often mentioned among the most famous anthropology museums in the world. Celebrating its 120th birthday in 2021, the museum has fascinating exhibitions about traditional world cultures and their music, natural history, and modern ecology. The Horniman is surrounded by large gardens where you’ll find a famous  Alaskan Tlingit Indians totem pole. 
  • Sherlock Holmes Museum. Dedicated to the famous literary character of Arthur Conan Doyle that has experienced a resurgence in popular culture during the last decade, this is one of the most interesting niche museums in London. The museum features a large collection of memorabilia associated with the famous private detective, objects from theatre and TV productions that brought Homes to life, as well as tours which explain the wider context of Victorian London in which the stories are set. Just like Holmes’ residence in the stories, the museum is on Baker Street which is in the City of Westminster, the central part of London. The museum charges an entrance fee, although rates are reduced for children.
  • Museum of the Home. One of the lesser-known national museums in London, this fascinating institution explores the domestic lives of Londoners and other British people over the last 400 years. The museum consists of two main collections, Homes Through Time and Gardens Through Time, showing changes in arrangement, style, and family life over centuries. The Museum of Home is in the borough of Hackney in East London.
