London Museum & Galleries 6th Edition

London is home to some of the best museums in the world.  Cultural icons like the British Museum, the National Gallery and the Natural History Museum are rightly on everyone’s must-see list but the capital is rich in less well-known local and specialist museums that can be just as rewarding.  

Whether you’re a long-standing resident, a returning or first time visitor, London’s inspirational museums are a brilliant way of exploring the capital and this newly revised pocket guide provides all the information you’ll need to unlock this city-sized cabinet of curiosities.

Product story

Everyone knows that London is the place to see the Crown Jewels, marvel at Magna Carta, and puzzle over the Rosetta Stone but did you know it’s also where you can find the world’s oldest dress, the Laughing Cavalier, Winston Churchill’s dentures, and JMW Turner’s catflap? 

There are museums all over London, from the centre of town to the furthest suburbs and sometimes in the most surprising of locations, from venerable historic houses to ancient church crypts, windmills to wartime bunkers, hospitals to flower markets, and from palaces to pumphouses.
