The Best Central London Museums You’ve Never Heard Of

If you’ve been to London a few times before, chances are you’ve just about had your fill of the British Museum, The Science Museum and The V&A. And fantastic as these museums might well be, there’s a good chance that you’ll want to try something new for your next short stay in Mayfair.

So here’s a quick roundup of some slightly more intimate, yet equally fantastic, artistic, historic and cultural destinations for you to enjoy.

Sherlock Holmes Museum

Since his creation by acclaimed author Sir Arthur Conan Doyle in 1887, the character of Sherlock Holmes has shot to worldwide prominence. And now you can visit his fictional address of 221b Baker Street right here in London, to enjoy this fantastic museum dedicated to all things Sherlock Holmes.

The Victorian setup means you’ll be magically transported into the world famous tales as soon as you walk through the door.

The Cartoon Museum

Cartoon art hasn’t always received the recognition it deserves in the art world – which is why we’re so delighted that The Cartoon Museum collates some of the most fantastic examples of British cartoon heritage. From Private Eye to The Beano, the Cartoon Museum is certainly a memorable, if alternative, way to spend an afternoon during your short stay in Mayfair.

Grant Museum of Zoology

For those looking for something a little more historical during your stay in our London serviced apartments, check out the Grant Museum of Zoology, for London’s only remaining zoological museum. Opened in 1828, this fantastic space features specimens such as the Dodo and the Quaggo. It’s quite a different experience from the Natural History Museum.

London truly is the museum capital of the world – and it would be truly impossible to list every possible destination for every person. One thing’s for certain, however – whoever you are, whatever you’re interested in, there’s a museum in London for you. So why not take some time to find out what your perfect destination is?
