History Museum
“The IWM London has had on a major refit - by Foster & Partners architects - which opened in 2014 to coincide with the centenary of the start of World War I. The Central Hall is still the attention- grabbing repository of major artefacts: guns, tanks and aircraft hung from the ceiling (not least a Harrier GR9 that saw action in Afghanistan). Terraced galleries allow this section of the museum to also show a Snatch Land Rover from Iraq and an Argentine operating table from the Falklands. The already extensive World War I gallery has been expanded, and leads into the original displays for World War II. The museum’s tone darkens as you ascend. On the third floor, the Holocaust Exhibition (not recommended from under-14s) traces the history of European anti-Semitism and its nadir in the concentration camps. Upstairs, Crimes Against Humanity (unsuitable for under-16s) is a minimalist space in which a film exploring contemporary genocide and ethnic violence rolls relentlessly.”

Galerie d'art
“Based in Trafalgar Square, the National Gallery is one of the most popular Art Galleries in the city. Dating back to 1824, the gallery is home to a massive collection of 2300 paintings, some of which are as old as the 13th century. Whether you’re looking for the works of Turner, Holben or Van Gogh, you’ll find some recognisable classics dotted around the gallery. One item of note about the national gallery is in the fact that it was not taken from an existing collection from royalty or nobility but was instead stemming from a collection of 38 paintings which were bought from John Julius Angerstein, a patron of the arts in the 19th century.”

“The Clink was a prison in Southwark, England, which operated from the 12th century until 1780. The prison served the Liberty of the Clink, a local manor area owned by the Bishop of Winchester rather than by the reigning monarch. As the Liberty owner, the Bishop kept all revenues from the Clink Liberty, and could put people in prison for failing to make their payments. As the Bishop, he could also imprison heretics. The Clink prison was situated next to the Bishop's London-area residence of Winchester Palace. The Clink was possibly the oldest men's prison and probably the oldest women's prison in England.[”

“Dean's Yard is built on the site of The Elms and the former monastery farmyard. Since the 18th century there have been three rows of trees and a central green here, but the high railings surrounding it were removed in 1967. The yard now features a number of large trees, including London planes, a red horse chestnut, a tulip tree, maple and sycamore. Smaller trees include silver birches and a medlar. The surrounding buildings are in an attractive ‘collegiate' style. The site is used by Westminster School as an occasional football pitch.”

“Changing of the Guard Some kids find this a little dull, others love the pomp and tradition. The best place to see the guards is on The Mall, near St. James’s Palace. If your kids are small they won’t see much squashed in with the crowds at Buckingham Palace. There is also a Changing of the Guard at Windsor Palace (35 minutes outside of London by train) that sees far smaller crowds but offers more pageantry. ages: 2+ tube: St. James’s Park, Green Park, Hyde Park Corner times: 11:30 but be in place by 11:00 am at the lastest. It takes place every day May through July and alternating days otherwise – check the schedule. costs: Free.”

“The Royal Mews forms part of Buckingham Palace and houses the carriages and horses used by the Queen and the Royal Family for State and ceremonial occasions. A visit provides an opportunity to see the Royal Household in action. For much of the year the stables are also home to the 30 Windsor Grey and Cleveland Bay horses who serve the Queen on official duty when required. Visitors can also see the Gold State Coach which is used for Coronation and State Visits, weddings and the State Opening of Parliament. As they may be on duty, undergoing training or having a well-deserved rest away from London, the horses are not always on view.”

“This is a members-only library, but they have free guided tours for the public a few evenings a month. I owe my theatre directing career to it, because I do my research there. It was founded in 1841 and has over 1 million books. The science and miscellaneous section has some funky subdivisions like a surprisingly large selection of flagellation books. It has a ridiculous roll call of famous members: Dickens, Pinter, Kipling, E.M. Forster. I’ve seen Tom Stoppard, Andrew Marr, and Simon Callow there. You’ll come across books donated by Bram Stoker and Forster, and if you’re a member, you can check them out.”
