Last night I visited one of London's lesser-known attractions: @thelasttuesdaysociety 's Museum of Curiosities. This tiny basement archive contains things like a two-headed lamb, a gold-plated hippo skull (which apparently belonged to Pablo Escobar), and Amy Winehouse's poop. It felt a bit like going inside the mind of Noel Fielding. Top tip: entry only costs £2.50 on a Thursday evening—and you can booze while you wander around. . . . . . . . . . . . . #viktorwyndmuseum #museumofcuriosities #viktorwynd #cabinetofcuriosities #wunderkabinett #lasttuesdaysociety #secretlondon #hiddenlondon #discoverlondon #discoveringlondon #explorelondon #exploringlondon #london #londonlife #mylondonlife #thisislondon #londonlove #london_is #visitlondon #gramminginlondon #londonbylondoners #seemorelondon #visitbritain #lovegreatbritain #stillswithstories #everysquareastory #momentsofmine #wonderfuleveryday #lifeunscripted #littlestoriesofmylife

Covering 350 acres between some of central London’s most affluent districts, Hyde Park is one of the most common destinations for tourists. Whether it’s for a spot of lunch or just a gentle wander, Hyde Park in the sun can be a magical place. • • • #hydepark #kensingtonpalace #summer #londonsummer #kensingtongardens #knightsbridge #mayfair #explorelondon #visitlondon #citybreak #londonflowers #london #londonlifestyle #flowerdesign #londonflowers #luxurylondon #londoner #londonist #londra #gardendesign #londonsummer

Dad. Circa 1876. ⁠ ⁠ We were reminded of this genius photograph earlier today. ⁠ ⁠ Ignore the cigarette kids. Smoking definitely isn't cool. However wearing a kimono during the day and having a large selection of brandy to coupe glasses on your dressing table is. Copy that. ⁠ ⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ ⁠ #Tooting #londoneats #eaterlondon #southlondon #foodpornshare #explorelondon #londonevents #londonlife #timeoutlondon #squaremeallondon #bestfoodporn #bigeats #favefoodpics #bestfoodlondon #londonhiddengems #londonsbestpics #foodpics #lovefood #foodie #foodporn #instafood #londonfood #bao #nomnom #foodgasm #londonfood #EEEEEATS #family #cooldad ⁠ ⁠

There is such a wide range of architecture that tells the story of London over the last 2000 years. Founded in 50 AD by the Romans, London has evolved to host over 8 million residents today. The area has suffered from the plague, famine, the Great Fire of 1666, and the Second World War. As you travel through greater London master pieces still stand from 600s including St Paul’s Cathedral, 1065 Westminster Abby was consecrated, not to mention Castles, Palaces, and new age architectural works of art. Grab your camera and get lost, you won’t be disappointed. 📸 Did you know most churches ⛪️are open to the public? Peak your head in and always look around back for a secret garden 🥀. If you plan to tour Westminster or St. Paul’s go first thing in the morning to avoid the queues. • #travellondon #explorelondon #westminsterabbey #cityscape #oldworld #londoninstagram

Peter Pan at @troubadourwcity was just... magical, mesmerising... I don’t think I’ve ever seen a show like it. Tbh The first scene I thought oh this is going to be a snooze fest but then it just blew up into the most innovative, full on, cool show unlike any other. I won’t give too much away but def go see it if you can. I managed to get a steal on tickets so look for discounts! It doesn’t matter where you sit with this show either. That’s a toy bunny in a blanket Flo’s holding. The blanket came in handy on the drive home as we went to the evening show which didn’t finish till gone 10 but she made it through! #peterpan #bristololdvic #nationaltheatre #troubodour #whitecity #theatre #theatrekids #londontheatre #londontheatrereviews #mumsofinstagram #londonlife #londonist #culturetrip #timeoutlondon #motherhoodthroughinstagram #parenthood #explorelondon #mblogger #pblogger #thisislondon #mylondon #londonmum #prettycitylondon #londonevents #whatsonlondon #wanderlustlondon

Круизный лайнер и Тауэрский мост - лучшего сочетания не видел. Наконец то я решился съездить туда рано утром 🙈😂 Увидеть развод моста, а заодно и прохождение лайнера через него - обязательная туристическая программа. Кстати отправится в круиз тоже можно прям отсюда. Одно из направлений - Канада, Америка - 36 дней туда и обратно. #londonguru #mysecretlondon #londonbylondoners #mylondon #secretlondon #londonsbest #sunnylondon #londonliving #londonlifestyle #londongram #londonphoto #londonphotography #explorelondon #itssolondon #thelondonlifeinc #londonarchitecture #londonisopen #londonwalks #londoncitylife #igotlondonskills #londondecanted #mylondonlife #exploringlondon #humlondon #hg_uk #loves_united_london #londonbuildings #londononly #goingoutlondon

Not really a South Ken secret - you can’t miss it - but it’s pretty impressive up close. The Albert Memorial was built for Prince Albert after his death of typhoid in 1861 (he was only 42!) The idea was to bring his many interests together - he’s holding the 1851 Great Exhibition catalogue, each marble carving represents a different continent (Europe, Asia, Africa and America - Australia got lost), the upper figures represent industry and agriculture - then there’s angels up the top - and the frieze around the base is all about the arts with famed musicians, poets and painters depicted (187 in all). Nice. #weekend #weekendwanderings #southkensingtonsecrets #southkensingtonwanderings #explorelondon #princealbert #princealbertmemorial #royaklparks #santilondon #santispa #sthkensington #southkensington #chelsealondon #chelsea #londonlife

DISTRICT WINE 🚇🍷 At Kew Gardens you can sit in comfort with a glass of wine as you watch another home bound train go by.  This view is from the Tap On The Line ( @tapontheline ). I wonder if there any other pubs with london underground platform views?

I choose my friends carefully. One of my best friends happens to be only 4 years old 💕 Everytime we meet, she showers me with so much genuine love and affection...and chooses to spend her precious time with me even when we're in a large group of people by putting her hand in mine and saying "You're my favourite Tata". How did I get so lucky to get a niece like you Chou Chou..Tata loves you long time ❤ #NieceLove #UnconditionalLove #LoveLikeAChild

Bad news has always sold well and disasters often feature on early postcards like this one from New York in 1905. Ironically, it occurred on September 11th when a high-level train jumped the tracks killing eleven passengers and one passer by. The driver was held responsible immediately went on the run being arrested two years later in San Francisco. Accidents involving all kinds of transport are a particularly prevalent theme from postcards in the early part of the twentieth century. The lack of safety features and an arrogant belief in our superiority over mere machinery would provide no shortage of subjects. Any number of picture postcards feature the aftermath of car, plane and shipwrecks, a bemused public gawking at a tangle of metal and scattered debris. Yet some of the more sought-after postcards actually show the ‘before’ picture of notable disasters. Cards featuring the Hindenburg or the Titanic in their pomp have particular appeal. https://charingcrossmarket.com/blog #militaria #deltiology #postcards #london #charingcross #collection #villiersstreet #explorelondon #visitinglondon #embankment #londontourist #charingcrossstation #collecting #market #londonmarkets #londonmarket #antiques #stamps #coins

Boy meets dog. . In the form of @southwarkparkgalleries current exhibition: Dog Show, a show curated by dogs for dogs and humans. . The exhibit was a joy to see and I’m pretty sure Milo enjoyed himself, considering his love/hate relationship with dogs. Not too long ago, out for a walk, some overzealous puppies (although same size as him) ran towards him, toppled him over and proceeded to lick his face. I thought it was endearing but it scared the living daylights out of him and thereafter any time he’d see a dog. Anyways, needless to say, I think he’s done a turn around and actually had fun. The exhibit is spread out between the two galleries, both within minutes of each other. And our ‘best in show’ was the dog room with the poodle heads (it’s a lot more fun then it sounds), there is also a film clip of people trying to wrangle some dogs for a photoshoot, much to a comic result. It felt like they were doing a documentary of my life. . Currently the gallery is holding a summer workshop, today was led by the ever so patient Alexa Lowe, who managed an impromptu photography lesson with Milo, I believe she’s there tomorrow. . Next week is the last week for the workshops, but it’s led by @abigailhunthuntabigail , whom I met at a workshop at Tate Britain earlier this year and is brilliant (her words of wisdom and advice on how to navigate a toddler around a gallery still resonate till this day). I’m really hoping to catch her. The exhibit is on until 8 Sept. . . . . . . . . . . #kids #kidsinmuseums #whatsonlondon #wanderlustlondon #londonmum #thisislondon #explorelondon #museums #lovemuseums #parenthood #timeoutlondon #culture #explore #art #fashion #travel #travelphotography #photooftheday #photography #wanderlust #artgallery #exhibition #londonart #artwork #artblogger #artoftheday #gallery #ihavethisthingwithmuseumpics #rockthatmuseumkid
