Knowledge is freedom
Why locals love it
London’s dedication to its past, present and future is exhibited perfectly in the Museum Quarter. The Victoria & Albert, Natural History and Science museums are all free, setting an example to its citizens that knowledge of where we've been, where we’re going and what we should celebrate now is a right every Londoner should freely access.
Why you should visit it
Museums are touristy I’ll admit, but to have three world class museums within metres of each other is something to be celebrated and explored. Being slightly outside of Central London the quarter is often neglected by the majority, so chances are you’ll bump into more locals than you would tourists.
My advice would be to explore on your own if you can, you’ll get a lot more out of each museum by going at your own pace.
