The British Museum

One of the world's oldest museums, The British Museum is vast and its collections, only a fraction of which can be on public display at any time, comprise millions of objects. The Great Court, which is open Sat-Wed 9am-6pm, Thur & Fri 9am-8.30pm, is a vast and beautiful covered piazza, designed by Foster and Partners, surrounding the free reference library in the former Round Reading Room.

The Cartoon Museum

Combining art with humour, this addition to London's museum-cum-gallery scene is refreshingly vibrant. From political cartoons of Thatcher, Brown, Bush and Blair to rare originals on loan from The Beano.
