I found out about this fascinating place by chance despite living in London most of my life! Located in the heart of Mayfair, it has a free and very interesting museum with exhibits about Davy and Faraday’s work. There’s also a nice cafe!
Oh dear. While there is no charge to enter, the museum could be so much better. First of all it has my pet hates: very dark in places which is extraordinary bearing in mind Faraday's discoveries about electricity, and the descriptions of the items are...More
Came here as part of a school trip to watch the International Speaking Competition final (very interesting!) the building was really lovely and very nicely decorated. Great facilities including a cafe, good number of toilets etc. No complaints about the building at all
We popped in here for a quick visit as my husband was keen to see the Faraday exhibit. It was really interesting and it is great that all of his possessions from his laboratory had been preserved so well whilst it was used as a...More
Our first time here on Monday evening. Having recently enrolled my son as a young member we chose a talk by Sean Carroll of Cal Tech as the subject was one he was particularly interested in.
Dr. Carroll's presentation was excellent. Engaging, funny and thought...More
Seeing it from the outside I was expecting something more grand on the inside which is not the case.
The 'museum' is a bit small but enough to have a sense of all the important research that took part in there over the years. And...More
My husband gave a keynote speech in the Faraday Theatre for a conference. The Theatre was packed. I arrived after the conference had started just to hear him speak. So, I sat at the top level in the far back. I have to say that...More
Went to listen to the talk by Harari based on his new book Homo Deus, a History of Tomorrow. Very stimulating with Harari taking lots of questions.
Did not visit museum but it is worthwhile attending one of the public talks. Very stimulating and, as...More
This is a great place for adults and children (young and old ) to see world class lectures.
We have seen them on Black holes to life on planets and the technology (as it was last night) of Star Trek.
Always informative and really good...More
I was expecting a breadth of scientific discoveries in this museum, from physics to chemistry to biology and so on. Instead, it was a floor dedicated to the discoveries of Michael Faraday (one of the museum's founders). I suppose I should have gone for one...More
Set beside some of London's best parks and home to world-class galleries, luxurious hotels, and famed thoroughfares, the ultra upscale Mayfair is one of London's most exclusive haunts. Here the shopping is haute, the dining is exquisite, and the nightlife is vibrant. A casual stroll through the area’s chic streets will reveal that Michelin stars and chauffeured cars are practically the norm here. Even
if you're on a tight budget, this exceptionally well connected swath of Central London is worth exploring, if only for the chance to take a peak at the goings on of upper crust English society.
