London Calling – Tips from Dr. Doug’s travels in England

After nine days in London I have recommendations for your bucket list. It’s a great trip for educators, parents, and children of any age. Museums are amazing and free, but some special exhibits have entrance fees. Below are links to pictures from those I visited. All cater to school groups as every museum should.

I also recommend Golden Tour’s day trips from London. I took two and each stopped at three sites. I was dropped off on my own so I didn’t have to walk about with a crowd. Prices were right and tour guides were excellent. Check my Facebook album for pictures from my trip. I stayed with my niece and her family, but if you don’t have relatives in London, see if some of your Twitter followers are up for a visit. For my regular readers there are some of my Net Nuggets at the bottom.

London Museum of Natural History – This is much bigger than it’s counterpart in New York City with lots more dinosaurs.
Science Museum of London – The best science museum I have been to and I have been to many.
V & A Museum of London – This is more like a smaller version of the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City but it’s by no means small.
Tate Modern Museum of London – If you like modern and abstract art this is the place for you. Even if you don’t it is a pretty cool space.
Tate British Museum of London – This place is chuck full of great paintings. I liked it better than the Tate Modern. You can go from the Tate Modern by boat.
