"Museum of London" Museum of London Tip by Sjalen

Museum of London, London: 44 reviews and 89 photos

I went here when I lived in London, long before I was a VT member, so there is no photo, but this is in fact one of my favourite London museums simply because it tells the story of the city itself! From the days long before there was even a city here, and scatterings of people lived along the Thames, to Roman "Londinium" and onto the Medieval city and then the Great fire of London in 1666, followed by the sprawl of London into the city centre we know today in the 18th century when villages such as Knightsbridge ended up belonging to London. You get to know more about famous Londoners such as Samuel Pepys and Christopher Wren and well...put at least half a day aside to it if you love London like I do. Inside the museum you also get a good view of what is left of London's Roman defense wall (hence the museum address!).
