London’s museums are the best in the world. From art galleries to displays of significant historical and scientific discoveries and even more specialised collections of curiosities, there’s a venue for every taste. The museums here are always changing their exhibitions and temporary displays, so even if you’ve been before there’s bound to be plenty of new things to explore. Many now also run ‘late’ events, allowing you to discover their delights after work, perhaps even with a drink in hand! We regularly update this exclusive list of where to go and what to see, so you can keep track of all the latest exhibitions, attractions and lates. Tuck in!
