Consistently under-rated, in my opinion, but then there is some some serious competition when it comes to museums in London! But do not let this place escape your attention. The setting is outstanding and the attention to detail impressive. In the midst of the Roman...More

From the moment we entered the Museum to the moment we left we loved it. As soon as we walked in the door we were greeted by a friendly and welcoming lady. It was a Sunday morning so fairly quiet, perfect after a busy Saturday....More

Easy to get to , very well laid out, very informative, friendly staff. Particularly liked the recreated Roman rooms, the Selfridges lift, and the Victorian street. Fascinating, we will happily return.

Nicely laid out, with lots of artefacts found in London, all presented in chronological order. Also the remains of the London Wall. Full of schoolkids, so you might want to go on a weekend.

A great variety of stories about London told with a diversity of quality Interpretation media. Really liked the incorporation of contemporary children's artwork and poetry used to tell ancient stories.

This museum covers the history of London in 3 floors of an old dockside warehouse. Very interesting with tons of material. A pleasant way to pass a rainy afternoon.

I really like this museum a great deal and always try to visit it in when I'm in London. I took my mom to London for her first time and we visited this museum. Some of the exhibits definitely felt overly dated during this visit.

If you invest the time here, you really can learn a great deal about London. Information is densely packed in here, but presented very well. The amount of details and information is mind blowing. The history of London is incredible!

City of London
From its ancient past as a Roman trading outpost to
its 21st century status as the wealthiest square mile
in the world, the financial district known simply as
“The City” is one of London's most historic and
fascinating neighbourhoods. Here high rise office
towers such as Norman Foster’s Gherkin mingle with
Roman ruins and architectural marvels from virtually
every era in between, including Christopher Wren's

approximately how much time should we allow to visit ? two adults, no children. We are trying to decide if we would have enough time to also tour St. Paul's when we finish. Thank you.

Hi, we recommend at least 2 hours for your visit. We are less than a 5 minute walk from St Paul's, so it makes perfect sense to fit in both attractions on your itinerary for the day!
