London rivals New York with its myriad places to see and visit. The famous London Eye offers visitors spectacular views of England’s capital from 443 feet high in a giant moving Ferris wheel. Buckingham Palace, the Queen’s London residence, is worth a selfie or two. Westminster Abbey, the church for Royal coronations and burials, and the famous wax models at the Madame Tussauds, which opened its doors more than 200 years ago, are popular attractions to see.
Those looking to get their cultural fix will surely be satisfied in London. The British Museum, only a short walk from the SNL 2016 meeting, holds a vast collection of world art and artefacts and is free to all visitors. The largest museum in Europe, the British Museum houses more than 8 million works of art illustrating and documenting the story of human culture from its beginnings to the present, the most famous artifact being the Rosetta Stone.
The National Gallery has a collection of paintings dating from the mid-13th century to 1900 and is the fourth most visited art museum in the world, after the Louvre, the British Museum and the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. The Victoria and Albert Museum, known around town as the V&A, holds the world’s largest collection of decorative arts and design (4.5 million objects).
If natural history is your passion, then a visit to the Natural History Museum is a must. With over 80 million life and earth science specimens, this world-famous museum is particularly known for its dinosaur skeletons.
