One of my favourite things about London is how much there is to do that’s free! By now I’ve worked my way around most of the museums here, but I was shocked to discover that there were a few that Sam hadn’t been to. (Including my favourite, the V & A.) Even though we’d been before we decided to go back to the Tate Britain and wander around the 500 years of British Art collection.
Another amazing thing about London is the sheer amount of history that you’ll stumble across when wandering around the city. For example, just walking by T.E. Lawrence’s old home on your way to a museum. (I’d love to see inside… to live anywhere nearby…) I do recommend that you try to stay in Central London if you’re just coming for a quick visit, that way you can make the most of your time in town and have to spend as little possible commuting. (There are some lovely hotel recommendations here.)
