A real gem. The British Museum has played host to an array of artifacts from Ancient Egypt to the Chinese Terracotta Army.
As one of the most famous museums in the country, The British Museum is most definitely a must-see when visiting the big city. Since its establishment in 1753, the museum has dedicated itself to human history, art and culture from all over the world. With an expansive collection of more than 8 million works, it is one of the largest in existence, and with free public access, be sure to not miss out on all the attraction has to offer in its story of culture from the present day to over 2 million years ago.
With only a 40-minute stroll south of the hotel (or a 20-minute tube ride), the museum stands very close to Holiday Inn London - Camden Lock. Why not make a morning of it and have lunch in the museum restaurant before moving onto the next destination!
The British Museum is free to everyone and multimedia guides are available in 10 languages.
