There's even a dedicated Design Museum, along with other notable attractions such as the Natural History Museum with its life-size blue whale skeleton in the heart of the hall. Most of London's museums are free to enter.
  • London offers great sightseeing from Big Ben to Buckingham Palace – but there's also a host of majestic and sprawling green spaces including parks with resident deer and pelicans, butterfly houses and even dinosaur statues.
