National Gallery
Trafalgar Square, London WC2N 5DN

In the following review, Stephen from Genk, Belgium, talks about his experience at the National Gallery. “Excellent place! You could spend a whole day here or a couple of hours and come back again and again. What better way to spend a rainy day, and many people thought so too today, so went upstairs to the second floor which seemed a little less people and checked out the Stuarts and religion. Love the history of the Kings and Queens of Britain, and especially the Stuarts reign for over a century is a really exciting and interesting time. Also great to place King James I of the famous “King James Bible”, an English translation of the Christian Bible for the Church of England.

Saskia754 from Hamburg, Germany, gives their verdict of their recent visit to the British Museum. “THE KEY TO THE ANCIENT WORLD!” Saskia754 continues by saying, “Visting the British museum is an enriching experience, it took me back to the ancient ers of human civilization. it holds one of the richest and ecltctic public art collections of the world. I’ve been very affascinated by the Parthenon sculptures and the Mummy of Katebet. The collection is just breathtaking! Don’t miss the Invention of porcelain, Room 95 The gallery has more than 1,700 examples of breathtaking beautiful ceramic objects, both practical and fanciful.

V&A – Victoria and Albert Museum
Cromwell Road, London SW7 2RL

Laurie from Grafton, Vermont, visited the Victoria and Albert Museum whilst on holiday in London. This is what they had to say, “If you like stuff! I enjoyed the museum, it’s beautiful and full of fascinating stuff. The special exhibits are very popular, and they sell out, so you cannot go on a whim and expect to get it (sadly). I did not spend as much time as I had thought I would, because just looking at stuff gets old.” Laurie goes on to say, “I enjoyed learning about the history of the place. Bravo London for preserving your history, the history of applied arts, and keeping it fresh. I’d absolutely go back, and this time I would plan ahead and get tix for the special exhibits.

Churchill War Rooms
Clive Steps, King Charles Street, London SW1A 2AQ
Website: https://www.iwm.org.uk/visits/churchill-war-rooms

To learn more about what happened during World War Two, especially at the heart of Britain’s roll, you must go to the Church War Rooms. Darcy from North Tonawanda, New York, did just that. Darcy starts of her review, “Long line – great experience!” She continues, “Since the movie, The Darkest Hour, was released, interest has increased greatly for this location. It was included in the London Pass, so we thought that would help us get in. False! They allow enough people to reach capacity in the morning, then the line stops, and often, only the people with paid, scheduled tickets are allowed in. We waited over an hour, on a cold rainy day, 4 positions from the door, while the ticketed people kept being let in. They need to reevaluate how they let people in, selling fewer tickets, or flat out telling people, they won’t have a chance.

Though queuing was a problem, she finished off by saying, “Once we got in, the museum is fascinating and interactive. So many room preserved just as they were, and lots of info about Churchill himself. Snack station had some yummy, historical or at least local options. And they let us eat the packed lunch we brought, while we bought drinks there.

St. James’s Park
Horse Guards Road, The Storeyard, London SW1A

Not everywhere in London you have to pay for, there are some places where it doesn’t cost a penny to enter. St. James’s Park is one such place, and especially if it happens to be a sunny day. Ferg from Chelmsford, United Kingdom, decided to visit St. James’s Park whilst visiting London. Here is his verdict, “Fantastic park!
This is a must visit. Great green space with wonderful lake and great selection of water birds. The duck house is lovely. It’s a great park right next to Buckingham palace so you spend an hour relaxing before doing more sightseeing. In the summer it’s great to take a picnic in and stretch out on the lawns. There are food kiosks in the park as well. You can easily access Horse Guards parade admiralty arch and then through into Trafalgar Square. I come here regularly when in London in the summer a special place.
