Discovering the Household Cavalry Museum

On my endless search to dodge crowds when out discovering the city I’ve come across some absolute gems.  The latest of my finds is the Household Cavalry Museum.  It isn’t hidden at all though, in fact is it in one of the busiest tourist areas.  You will always find crowds around the corner from the…

Discover the Largest Collection of British Art

Rather deceptively the British Museum houses art and artifacts from around the world, not British art as the name might suggest.  For that you’d have to head to Tate Britain.  The gallery, located in South London on the Thames at Millibank, is a part of the Tate network of galleries in England, including Tate Modern,…

I visited more than a month…

Love London – Museums

My first year in London I was broke.  Like really broke.  I was studying and not working.  So with no steady funds coming in I was limited in what I could do, well so I thought.
