Science Museum
“South Kensington is London’s Museum Mile, and this is at its heart. A Victorian temple to learning, it was built by Alfred Waterhouse and now displays skeletons and fossils alongside temporary exhibitions and expert talks at the Darwin Centre. In the central hall from this summer, Dippy, the much-loved model of a Diplodocus carnegii which was donated by Andrew Carnegie, will be replaced by a 25-meter skeleton of a blue whale found near Wexford in Ireland. A classic museum for rainy days that is often packed with school trips; come close to closing time to a quieter experience. Late night programmes bring the museum alive for adults with silent discos mixed with light learning. ”

“The architecture of the British Museum is almost as impressive as the collection it holds. Entrance to the museum is free (with the exception of special exhibitions) and the building is a great rainy day activity when the weather is not so great in the capital. Head to the very heart of the Museum to capture a stunning picture of the British Museum’s architecture at its best”

“Pole position in London, the National Gallery is at the very centre of the Trafalgar Square. Started in 1824 and regularly refreshed through the centuries by strategic purchases and donations from the collections of impoverished aristocrats, the cut-off date for art works is 1900 (after which you need to visit Tate Modern or Tate Britain). Still, there’s plenty left to enjoy including a cluster of Leonardo Da Vincis, Botticelli and a superb capsule collection of Post-Impressionists, including Monet, Cezanne, Van Gogh’s Sunflowers and Seurat’s Bathers at Asnieres. ”

“Until 2000, this museum on the bank of the Thames housed the UK’s contemporary art collection. Always an attractive museum, the galleries were cramped and too much was held in storage but the opening of Tate Modern has solved the problem, leaving the original building to concentrate on British art. The start of 2017 has seen a hugely popular David Hockney exhibition (although this does cost extra) but the permanent collection includes a trio of paintings by Whistler, an unrivalled collection of Turner paintings, plus Stanley Spencer, Francis Bacon and Henry Moore.”

“The Globe Theatre hosts the most accomplished Shakespearean actors to be found in the world, and is only fifteen minutes' away. The venue is small, but tickets are often available at late notice and at a surprisingly affordable price - especially if you are willing to stand. Just be aware that longer productions can turn into a marathon when not sat - especially in the summer heat!”

History Museum
“The IWM London has had on a major refit - by Foster & Partners architects - which opened in 2014 to coincide with the centenary of the start of World War I. The Central Hall is still the attention- grabbing repository of major artefacts: guns, tanks and aircraft hung from the ceiling (not least a Harrier GR9 that saw action in Afghanistan). Terraced galleries allow this section of the museum to also show a Snatch Land Rover from Iraq and an Argentine operating table from the Falklands. The already extensive World War I gallery has been expanded, and leads into the original displays for World War II. The museum’s tone darkens as you ascend. On the third floor, the Holocaust Exhibition (not recommended from under-14s) traces the history of European anti-Semitism and its nadir in the concentration camps. Upstairs, Crimes Against Humanity (unsuitable for under-16s) is a minimalist space in which a film exploring contemporary genocide and ethnic violence rolls relentlessly.”

“Great museum with all amenities for parents with children. There's a great cafe inside and often lots of interactive options. Only a short 10 minute walk or bus ride and can keep small ones entertained for a long time on a rainy day.”

“Take a train to London Bridge, then change for a train to Charing Cross. You can now explore Trafalgar Square, the National Portrait Gallery. You are also close to the theatre zone, Buckingham Palace, and Chinatown.”
