With the Bank Holiday weekend almost upon us, millions of people will be intending to take the time to visit one of London’s many great museums and exhibitions.
There are, of course, a huge array of these dotted across the city – and if you’ve never been to some of these top attractions in the past, it is an opportunity that you cannot pass up.
However, one of the challenges facing families in planning a trip to London is the task of fitting in so many planned activities into such a tight timeframe.
Thankfully, then, a number of the top attractions are actually open until late to accommodate for this reality.
Here, we’re going to look at two of the best of these…
The London Transport Museum
The local economy is still hugely dependent on the public transport network, which takes millions of people around the city every day.
The underground network is equally important to commuters and tourists, and has evolved enormously since it was first created just over 150 years ago.
If you’re travelling with young children, this exhibition is sure to further their understanding of how the city has changed through the decades and how the transport network has changed accordingly.
On May 16th, the museum will open a new exhibition which focuses on London during the First World War.
Museum of London
Another of the city’s museums that is open late into the night, this attraction will house the Digital City on May 15th.
The capital is one of the most famous and historic cities in the world, and this is a great place to visit if you’re interested to learn about how London has changed through the years.
It is located by the Barbican, which is within reachable distance of the Montcalm Hotel in central London.
