Took two of my sons-in-law there by the first-class London Red Bus service. It was a complete thrill for the three of us and we spent most of the day there, deciding to walk back to our Mayfair hotel through the well-police-protected streets (on high alert) of this wonderful city. One of my boys was an active submariner at the time and he seemed to be fascinated by the World War One exhibits most. The other boy was very keen on the Second World War stuff ... particularly The Spifire, The Holocaust, Maps, Papers and all the other related stuff. For my part, I was very impressed with and interested in the truly moving artwork produced by many of the artists I have always admired...

My first trip to the HMS Belfast was in the 1970's as a child. I took my 11 years old son for his first trip yesterday. I wasn't expecting much, but it was brilliant! I thought I would whizz round in an hour and how wrong I was. I think we were there about 3 hours and I am not sure we saw it all. The location is superb and the views across London in all directions are amazing. The boat itself is very interesting. It was refreshing to go around an attraction and not have guards saying 'do not touch' or having signs up about not being able to go up narrow stairs as dangerous. There was lots to see and you were able to go up and down the narrow ladders to all levels. I really recommend this.

Tucked away near Borough market, this was a great find and really gave you a good feel for medicine in the 19th century and earlier. Sure, it not a flash museum and the information is purely the objects themselves and signs in English but it was quite thorough and took you on the St Thomas' hospital journey from circa 13th to about end of the 19th century, covering ,any aspects including medicines, surgery, anaesthetics and antiseptics amongst others. The museum has an old world feel which adds to the overall feeling of the place. The operating theatre is brilliant and anyone who has seen the US TV show 'The Knick' will immediately relate to it - as well as much of the rest of the museum.
