As a museum of “stuff the empire stole from the world,” this is hard to beat. It appears throughout A.S. Byatt’s novel The Children’s Book, which is set in Edwardian London and which describes the ceramics in Rooms 140-146 in luscious, sumptuous detail. The museum always has that former empire vibe for me. The scones with cream and jam are pretty great in the downstairs cafe, which also feels very E.M. Forster. If you know a member, or decide to become one, you also get access to an amazing secret cafe hidden at the back of the glass collection.
Amazing free entry museum and historic architectural building in South Kensington. Only a 25 minute tube ride from the flat. Also worth popping to the Natural History Museum next door!

“One of the most popular, large and beautiful Royal Parks in London. It has tennis courts, gardens, rowing, playgrounds, gallery, restaurants, cycling and lots of swans to feed. ”
“If the shopping on Oxford Street, Regent Street and One New Change wasn’t quite enough for you, don’t worry, we have London’s most iconic shopping mall up next on the list! While the prices might not be for all pockets entry is free, and I personally always enjoy exploring the food hall of Harrods. The outside of the building is also beautiful and the perfect backdrop for Instagram photos. If you’re visiting under Christmas time they also add loads of lights to the facade, making it an even more Instagrammable shot.”
“An evening out that you'll never forget is guaranteed in this world-renowned concert hall. With 390 shows on offer each year, you'll be blown away by any spectacle held here regardless of the genre.”
