EXHIBITION ROAD, LONDON – NATURAL HISTORY, V&A, SCIENCE MUSEUMS

This post may contain affiliate links

Exhibition Road in London is one of my favourite roads in London – mainly because of the museums and buildings there. This is found on the circle line (Yellow one) and you exit at South Kensington Tube station. It is well signposted – you follow the subway under the street and take which ever exit you require for the different museums. If you do this, you do miss out on the beautiful buildings that London has to offer.

The Natural History Museum

The museum is home to life and earth science specimens comprising some 80 million items within five main collections: botany, entomology, mineralogy,  palaeontology, and zoology. The museum is a world-renowned centre of research specialising in taxonomy, identification and conservation. You could easily spend a day in this museum. There is so much to see and experience

The Victoria and Albert Museum

The Victoria and Albert Museum (often known as the V&A),  is the world’s largest museum of decorative arts  and design, housing a permanent collection of over 4.5 million objects. This was founded in 1852 and named after Queen Victoria and Prince Albert. I visit this museum for the temporary exhibitions that are held there. It is a beautiful building.
