London Things To Do: The Museum of London
One of my favourite museums in London is the Museum of London. It’s certainly not one of the top 5 museums that you have to visit when you visit London for the first time but can be safely placed into the 2nd tier of top London museums.
The Museum of London – as the name suggests – displays the history of London starting from the first settlements to today’s London as we know it. Walking through the different epochs of the museum, you will learn how London looked like during the Roman Empire and how the city was affected by the Great Fire and the Black Death.
Whilst every major epoch is displayed vividly, one of the my favourite parts of the museum is the Victorian Walk. The Victorian Walk shows a small part of London ‘rebuilt’ as it may have looked like during Victorian times. Here you can visit an old Victorian pub, look into a bakery, barber, tailor, toy shop, a pub and so much more. . I really love that part of the Museym as with just a bit of imagination you feel like you are set back in time :)
The museum is located in the City, London’s financial district and in walking distance from St. Paul’s Cathedrale. Hence both attractions can be combined on one day. Afterwards you walk along the Thames and even head over to London bridge and Tower Bridge which are around 30mins walk from St. Paul’s. If you start early in the morning with the Muesum of London you may even have time to schedule a visit to the Tower later in the afternoon.
