This is a fun little museum. It shows the London police through history. It is a fun stop. There are a lot of artifacts, uniforms and pictures to show the different periods. It is worth a visit if you are in the area.

A fascinating and free journey through the history of the City of London police. Nobody will spend too much time here as the museum is quite small but it is full of fascinating artefacts from the history of the force.
