Natural History Museum- must see The Science museum and Victoria & Albert Museum-Art/Design just a short walk away. All museums are free (donations are appreciated but not necessary) the night life part of NHM is chargeable but not worthwhile. There is lots to see and it can easily take up…
The Natural History Museum in London is a natural history museum that exhibits a vast range of specimens from various segments of natural history.
Amazing building and with great exhibits all year round. enjoy the ice rink in the winter and the butterfly garden in the spring.
Landmark museum of animals and natural phenomena, with hands-on exhibits and animatronic dinosaurs.
One of the most extraordinary buildings in the country. Even if you have no interest in animals or natural history, it is worth coming here - it's free! - to look inside at the architecture. It was built as a 'cathedral to nature', and it's a delight.
“All science, all the time. You'll find space ships, engine parts, interactive areas and more. Free (except for the special exhibitions) and worth popping into, but of the three South Kensington Museums, this is my least fave, but it's still good. If you have kids, though, it's a must! 10-12 minutes' walk from the flat.”
“The Victoria and Albert Museum is the world's leading museum of art, design, and performance. Their immense exhibition programme has seen them bring exhibitions such as: David Bowie, Frida Kahlo, Alexander McQueen, Dior… Either a 50 min walk, for those who love to stretch their legs, or a 25 min tube ride on the District Line from Hammersmith tube station to South Kensington.”
“Elaborate shopping emporium with glittering Egyptian Room and acclaimed Food Hall.”
“Hyde Park is a major park in Central London. It is the largest of four Royal Parks that form a chain from the entrance of Kensington Palace through Kensington Gardens and Hyde Park, via Hyde Park Corner and Green Park past the main entrance to Buckingham Palace. (Wikipedia)”
