To be honest the NHM is not somewhere i really go often, but with a toddler, we thought it would be a great place to go see dinosaurs and see grandparents at the same time.
I was expecting it to be busy, and i was right, however it is possible to book advanced tickets (free) for entry to some of the exhibitions such as the dinosaurs one. The exhibition was in a long room, with a raised walkway running down the middle. You start by going on the walkway and can view lots of dinosaur models suspended from the roof, as you walk down over the other visitors you cna get a idea of the layout. Once you reach the end you come face to face with a “living” T Rex. This is the highlight for many people, sorry but as i said this is not really of interest to me. Children love it though and it kept a 20 month old entertained and slowed him down enough to let the adults catch up with him.
The NHM is huge and we only looked at a few things, but I still find all the pickled and embalmed animals creepy and disturbing. For example in the mammals room there is an embalmed giraffe and you can see the stich marks….
lovely day visiting the Tate, one of my favourite places in London. It is also great for little people.
A little secret of some london galleries and museums are the friends program, not only does this get you free entry to the exhibitions but there are members rooms which are often less crowded and great places to meet.
The Tate Britan, friends room has lots of high chairs and a good kids meal deal, plus the bright and unique room with an open middle and domed room is a great distraction for little people.
As an Easter treat I thought I would try Jura Superstition limited edition single malt whisky.
My first thought on sniffing was i could hardly detect any smokyness. It claims to be lightly peated but and eventually i could smell some of the peaty smokyness but it was so light and a little disapointing.
Let’s see if it improves, but i suspect i will be getting another Laphroaig next time.
