  • We went to see the Egyptian exhibition and it was well presented with lots of information. There's also a really good quiz/exploring activity for children too. The building itself is also stunning and it's worth asking one of the staff to talk you through the history and carvings. There is a small cafe which is lovely and good value, and though we didn't have a piece of quiche or a cake they all looked stunning.
  • This is a really good example of Victorian architecture with ornate stair and wood panelled rooms.
  • An interesting permanent collection, but they also have good touring exhibits. Well worth a look. The cake in the cafe is generally very good too
  • This old office building is so gorgeous and interesting - the very rich designer spared no expense and the place is covered with carvings from literature and Shakespeare (I especially loved the carvings on the stairs of the three musketeers). The Egyptian exhibition, while interesting, takes a back seat to the beauty of the place itself.
  • This is an amazing place that opens to the public all too rarely so, when it does open, be sure to get inside. Built as a medieval palace by the first Viscount Astor in the early 20th century, its interior is both impressive and homely and you feel like you've stepped into a mini stately home located miles outside London rather than, as is actually the case, just of the busy Embankment. One of my favourite things here is the sight of the two cherubs one speaking into an old fashioned phone and the other listening on the end of the receiver. You might easily miss them as they're on the foot of the lamps at the base of the steps that lead up to the entrance.
