Sunday Sights

Natural History Museum

Every Sunday I’m posting a photograph of an iconic building, location or view in London. As a tour guide, I take great pleasure in showing these world famous sights to visitors and this weekly blog series will serve as a virtual extension of my guided walks.

naturalhistorymuseumFollowing on from last week’s botanical theme, today we are having a look at the ceiling of the Natural History Museum. A South Kensington landmark this public institution was built in 1881 and often gets very crowded during half term. (Heed the warning!) Due to its very ornate architecture, the museum has often been described – and very accurately so – as a ‘cathedral of nature’.

Fun fact: Did you know that the central axis of the National History Museum is aligned with the Albert Memorial? Both buildings were once part of the area known as Albertopolis.
