One of the things I’ve loved most about my time in London is learning about London’s incredible history. From Roman occupation and Norman invasion to the Great Fire and the Blitz, I can’t get enough of learning about it all.
Luckily for me, there is a museum dedicated to London and if you haven’t been yet, you simply have to visit the Museum of London located within walking distance of St Paul’s Cathedral. Like most London museums, it is free to enter but special exhibitions may be charged.
I recently had some time on my hands after my final exam and I took a look at the World City gallery. Here two of my favourite obsessions collide: the 1960s and London. This exhibition is all about the explosion of culture, fashion and colour in post-war Britain and if you love retro or 1960s fashion and music then you’ll love it here. There are some jaw-dropping exhibits, especially for pop culture fans. Luckily the exhibits are behind glass so I couldn’t drool on the Mary Quant dress.
These were just some of my favourites but I am always happy for a return visit to the Museum of London so do let me know if you’re keen!
