When it comes to tourist attractions, London has some of the very best, including a number of impressive museums for those who love history and culture. With so many to choose from, most of which are packed with unique artefacts you won’t be able to see anywhere else in the world, it can be tough to decide where to spend your time.
If your trip doesn’t allow for several days of museum hopping, you’ll want to focus on the very best to maximise your time. If there are three museums you can’t afford to miss, they are the Natural History Museum, The Science Museum and the Victoria and Albert Museum. Though they all offer something a little bit different, they remain to be some of the most popular year after year. Plus, they’re not too far from any of the hotels in Liverpool Street London.
