London is home to a huge array of museums and exhibitions, some of which rank among the most popular tourist attractions in the city, and no trip to the capital is complete without taking the time to visit at least one of these.
Many of them are, of course, open to the public free of charge and so if you’re looking for somewhere or something to entertain the kids on your break in the capital, this is one option that is well worth considering.
Here, we’re going to take a look at some of the best museum exhibitions in London.
Vikings: Life and Legend
The British Museum is already among the most popular tourist attractions in the city and this is one exhibition that you will not wish to miss out on, not least because it is the first exhibition of its kind in 30 years at the museum.
This fascinating show features loads of new archaeological discoveries and objects, which are sure to further your understanding of the Vikings.
Perhaps the highlight of the exhibition is the 37 m-long Viking warship – which is bound to capture the imagination of your children.
Bond in Motion
What’s more British than James Bond? The secret agent has been the star of numerous books and films, and his playboy lifestyle is encapsulated at this great exhibition.
It features lots of the most famous cars from the iconic movies, including the Honda CRF25OR off-road motorbike that was ridden by Daniel Craig in Skyfall, the most recent of the Bond films.
If you’re a fan of 007, then this is one exhibition that you will not want to miss out on.
The London Film Museum is located in Covent Garden and can easily be reached using the underground network from the Montcalm Hotel in central London.
