The Great Museums of London
Whatever you are interested in, there is probably a museum on this topic in London. Yes, sometimes it rains in England’s capital. Not as often as you might think, but in case it is pouring down, there are great ways to spend a great day indoors.
Take advantage of the versatile cultural offer and head to one of the museums - most of them with free admission! In South Kensington, prestigious museums present historic exhibits which amaze young and old from all over the world. One of the most popular places is the Natural History Museum which lights up not only children’s eyes with its fascinating collection. Just a bit further down the road, is the Victoria&Albert Museum which presents all sorts of fine arts.
If you prefer more curious exhibition venues, pay a visit to the Golden Hinde, a reconstruction of a traditional English galleon or the Graffik Gallery and participate in a workshop on graffiti.

Evenings in the City
If your feet are still not tired from exploring London throughout the day, get some tickets for Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre - it’s a one of a lifetime experience! The venue is based on traditional theatres from the 16th century and the companies perform traditionally William Shakespeare’s plays. Of course, you can get seats up in the gallery, however, the view from the crowd, right in front of the stage is great and the feeling even better. The downside to this is that there are no seats. During the whole performance, which can be as long as three hours, you have to stand. But you won’t even notice because you will immerse into the scenes of the play.
If this is not for you but you are still into philosophizing over the stories of British authors then step into the Sherlock Holmes Public House and Restaurant and solve the riddles together with Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s cult figure.
From the stars of British literature, we move on to the stars of the West End. London has many different shows to offer - you will definitely find something that is your taste. Immerse into the magical world of Harry Potter while watching The Cursed Child, classic musicals or new dazzling shows.
