London, England

City of Museums


Visiting London, England, means an opportunity to visit a very wide range of tourist attractions and London's museums are amongst the best in England and indeed the best of British museums. The British Museum is one of the world's oldest but many people love the smaller museums with which the London map is covered.

As the capital of England and the United Kingdom, London has more than its fair share of treasures for the visitor as well as great shopping, nightlife, galleries and things to see and do.

London Canal Museum is one of those medium sized British museums which is not such a well known London attraction as the Science Museum or other big names. However in a charming urban setting this museum repays the little bit of extra effort to visit, and is in an easily accessible location near a major transport interchange at King's Cross and St. Pancras International. Open six days a week, it tells a social history story of life on the capital's canals, and preserves a forgotten part of our heritage. The huge ice well beneath the building is unique in preservation and the museum also tells the story of the forgotten trade in natural imported ice and how it was supplied to Victorian London.
