One of London’s finest green spaces, the park surrounds a Jacobean mansion, Holland House, named after its second owner, the Earl of Holland, whose wife (fun fact!) was the first person in England to successfully grow dahlias. They’re still grown within its 55 acres, which also houses the Japanese-style Kyoto Gardens with its koi carp and bridge at the foot of a waterfall. In summer, open-air theatre and opera are staged in the park.

When the British Museum opened in 1759 it was the first of its kind: the only national museum open to the public in the world. It was – and still is – free to visit so anyone can go in and marvel at the weird and wonderful objects on display. Nowadays, the British Museum is home to the most significant finds made by British explorers, like the Rosetta Stone and the Parthenon sculpture from the Acropolis in Athens. The extensive galleries are organised by location and time period. If you get overwhelmed, you can follow a free eye-opening tour or book onto the Around the World in 90 Minutes guide.

London’s handsome Natural History Museum is home to 80 million plant, animal, fossil, rock and mineral specimens. Visitors to the institution, which is also a thriving research centre, can expect to come face to face with animatronic dinosaurs, a man-sized model of a foetus, an extinct dodo, a Giant Sequoia tree, an earthquake simulator, glow-in-the-dark crystals and much more. It had also been home to London’s most beloved dinosaur, Dippy, since 1905 but the 26-metre-long plaster-cast replica of a diplodocus skeleton is currently on a nationwide tour. A diving blue whale skeleton named Hope has taken up his spot in Hintze Hall – and she’s made quite the splash.
