My whole family has been a fan of the MoL for decades, and this remains the case. However, the Beasts of London exhibit was disappointing. The sound was poor and needed raising. This, coupled with a lack of anything terribly interesting to see or interact...More

towers such as Norman Foster’s Gherkin mingle with
Roman ruins and architectural marvels from virtually
every era in between, including Christopher Wren's
