Selected Recommendations to Visit in London
Here are just a few selected recommendations for places in London that busy project managers may wish to consider:
- For one modern collection of modern materials, designs and systems: Design Museum – Kensington. Free except for special exhibitions. European Museum of the Year 2018.
- For one concentrated collection all about London: Museum of London – largest urban history museum in the world – Barbican, EC2Y 5HN and Museum of Docklands (East) West India Quay, E14 4AL – free.
- For transport and infrastructure in London: London Transport Museum, WC2E 7BB – Covent Garden – plus tours of secret and disused sections of transport system.
- For regeneration and sports: Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park – Lee Valley.
- For just one from many art galleries: say National Portrait Gallery, WC2H – in Trafalgar Square – it’s about people.
- For everything technical: Science Museum, SW7 2DD.
- For just one open space or park from so many: Postman’s Park.
- For one unique, impressive, esoteric, unmissable demonstration of London: Sir John Soane Museum, Lincoln’s Inn Field, WC2.
- For all-in-one citadel, royal palace, prison, execution yard, barracks and garrison headquarters, museum, armoury and arsenal, with Crown Jewels, previous Royal Mint, Royal Menagerie, with ravens and Yeoman Warder (beefeaters) – it has to be the Tower of London.
- For one 360 degree view of the whole of London at no cost: standing at the centre of Waterloo Bridge whatever the weather.
Some have “Free” entry; but that does not mean to say that donations are not possible or appreciated; and in fact are encouraged. For free events, activities and locations visit www.londonisfree.com. For even wider information there is www.londonist.com.
