  • This museum isn't for everyone. For those who have an interest in skeletons, and bottled specimens, however, it is quite remarkable. It is contained in just one room - is fascinating & at the same tim...  more »
  • Headed to the grant museum with big expectations. Boy were they met. A small museum with limited opening hours but if you are around it's worth the stop. Regardless of age there's something for everyo...  more »
  • For fans of science and history is a paradise: shelves and display cases full of fossils, jars with animals and parts of animals in formaldehyde, the classic human skeleton but also Python skeletons, dugong, bats. All in a beautiful setting, which seems to be the setting for a movie. And then when you get to see a jar full of moles?

  • An amazing little museum with thousands of fascinating specimens! We particularly enjoyed the exhibition of ordinary animals that gave a bit of insight to our most familiar companions. The museum is staffed and there are interactive displays to get hands on with. Expect to spend an hour here. If you are a fan of biology the nearby Wellcome Collection would be a fantastic addition to your itinerary too :)
  • One room that's packed with an array of skeletons and animal specimens in glass jars. Fascinating and educational - great for kids. The curator showed us some Roman villa tiles with animal footprints - fun to guess (and discover) what they were. Easy to spend an hour or two here - lots of specimens to see and books so you can discover more.
  • Great free museum that's well worth a visit if your in the area. It is only one room which will take around an hour to explore the exhibits. Not for the squeamish or young children
  • Honestly one of (or even the) best museum's in London. I feel like not enough people know about this place which needs to change! If you go to London make sure you stop off in this taxidermists heaven.
  • Small place with lots of dead stuff in jars. There is a good kid activity sheet thing and it's small and low key enough not to get mobbed, even in the holidays. One of my favourite museums.

Where to stay in London

Many of London's main attractions are spread out, so nearby public transportation is key. There is no downtown area as such in London, and some of the least expensive hotels have more convenient access to tourist sites than the costlier ones. For a quintessential London experience, consider staying in the West End. This part of town offers excellent theaters, historical sites, and eating and shopping options for every taste. Lodging won’t be cheap, but you’ll have the colorful variety of London life right at your doorstep. Look at Notting Hill or Chelsea for charming and less expensive boutique hotels and B&Bs.
