The British Museum, where I work, is hardly unknown, but there are so many unusual objects, and it is truly exceptional. And with over 8 million works relating to history, art, and culture, there are plenty of surprises. Visit the Clocks and Watches gallery on the hour, and you’ll hear an unusual array of bongs, tings, and tunes. The silver-gilt huntsman automaton in the Waddesdon Bequest gallery is one of the most unusual items. This 17th century drinking game was propelled around a table by a clockwork mechanism with a removable head to drink from. Look out for secret doors in the beautiful and fascinating Enlightenment gallery.

Most of the museums in London are free to visit including the British Museum seen below. This hall is huge, so to really capture it you would need a wide-angle lens. I actually used a GoPro for this particular shot.

Cafetería
“This building near King’s Cross is an amazing blend of modern architecture and ancient leather-bound tomes. It’s really pleasant to sit and use their fast wifi or have a meeting in the cafe or public area while gazing up at the King’s Library—65,000 volumes assembled by George III and displayed in a striking glass column. For the comfiest spot, look for the padded leather armchairs with coveted built-in electrical outlets. You’ll have to join the queue of regulars that forms before the library opens in order to nab one.”
