Museum of London

London Wall London EC2Y 5HN

Situated in perhaps the City’s least historic and evocative corner, in the middle of perhaps the capital’s most misguided bit of 1960s planning, the Museum of London is one of London’s least well-known and most underrated museums. Comprehensively telling the story of the city from Prehistoric times to the present day, its two floors do a great job of bringing London to life. It’s a great story, and brilliantly told, with sections on the Romans, Medieval London, the Great Fire, and modern galleries including a new extension for the Lord Mayor’s Coach. Downstairs, the Pleasure Gardens are a treat, as is the Victorian Walkway. There’s also a popular shop, perfect for London-themed souvenirs and gifts. It’s very family-friendly too, with regular, usually free, events in school holidays and at weekends, as well as free gallery tours for adults.
