5. THE MUSEUMS

London has world class museums. The British Museum’s collection covers prehistory to the present day and has objects from every part of the world. I also recommend the Victoria and Albert Museum, one of the best for art and design, 2000 years of human creativity in virtually every medium for all over the world. For art there is the National Gallery, western European art from 1250s to early 1900s and Tate Britain which houses British art from 1500s to present day and the Courtauld Collection with an outstanding collection of Impressionists and Post Impressionists paintings. Don’t overlook the small museums, the Wallace collection is an real gem, an outstanding collection of European works of art, paintings, furniture, porcelain, arms and armour, originally the collection of the Marquesses of Hertford and displayed in their former home. There’s so much to see in these museums they can seem overwhelming, if you book my as your London tour guide I will show you the best on a guided tour.
