As a Londoner born and bred, I’m very familiar with the culture of the capital. I’ve probably been to most of the museums at some point, including the major ones such as the British Museum and the Victoria & Albert. What many people don’t know, Londoners included, is that there are dozens of small museums that are well worth visiting. Here are my recommendations.

Sir John Soane was the architect of the Bank of England, and also an avid collector. He built his house as a home for his collection, which includes everything from Egyptian mummies to drawings and engravings. Do not miss the amazing room with folding panelled walls, which was designed so that different paintings could be displayed simply by opening the panels.
