Really interesting museum. Takes you through the very early years, Romans, Saxons, Normans etc. Bringing you through the plague years, fire of London right up to date. Lots of artifacts and interesting things to see. Also, has a nice cafe.

My other half and I really enjoyed this museum. Follow 'London' right from 450,000 BC up to the present day. I personally found the Roman era the most interesting! We stopped just before the medieval section and headed to the cafe to break the visit...More

The Museum of London is the best place in London that gets overlooked by the tourists. I go there every time I go to London and spend more time there than I meant to. It is an excellent social history of London covering 450,000 year...More

Yet another brilliant museum. The Victoria Walk is especially enthralling with so many authentic features. There are free guided talks and walks at regular intervals and not limited to the displays - many venture into unusual topics e.g. the evolution of the London pub. Again,...More

We loved this museum. It does an excellent job of describing London’s development as a city from prehistoric to present.

Spend a few hours discovering the history of the city. As a former Museum Educator I appreciated the plain language text, accessible displays and engaging components. Watched families exploring with kids taking their time and focusing on components. I particularly enjoyed the Suffragette stories. Bravo...More

“The City” is one of London's most historic and
fascinating neighbourhoods. Here high rise office

every era in between, including Christopher Wren's

I'd budget at least 2-3 hours. There's quite a bit to see, so it's time well spent.
