This wasn’t my first time in the science museum and it probably won’t be the last given how little there is to do in London when it’s absolutely freezing. I love the the first few sections about space and innovation but after a while it...More

Large, easily to find from Sth. Kensington tube and free although they do ask for a donation on entrance. I prefer to view and donate what I feel it was worth. £5, in my case. It is large with a very good selection of exhibits...More

Excellent exhibition about the Tsar. Very interesting to read about where the family were buried and how they were found in recent years. Prince Philip even gave his DNA to help with this.

We went in early January and honestly spent about 2 hours in the “Who am I?” exhibition. So many activities to do, and so interesting. We visited around midday on a weekday and it was very quiet, apart from a few school trips. Always a...More

South Kensington
With its ivied mews, row upon row of Poppins-esque
white washed mansions, and placid garden squares, it's
easy to see the charms of South Kensington. And with
superb access to Hyde Park, Holland Park and
Kensington Gardens, as well as the largely
child-friendly and mostly free Museum Quarter (not to
mention more major attractions like Royal Albert Hall)
such charms are easy to make the most of. As welcoming

It’s better to go on weekdays first thing in the morning (opens at 10:00 am). That gets you in early together with whatever people might be there at that time and lots of time to take breaks and get around the entire museum... More
