Great Fire of London?

...people to see. Well, not really. More like 'we went to the Umbrella Museum in Ashby de la Zouch and it was GREAT.' If there is such a thing, that is.

Great Fire of London?

Postby Skippy2010 » 03 Aug 2014, 13:57

DH is working in London tomorrow, and like a crazy fool I've decided to go with him and take my 2 monsters. The thing is, we've been telling Evan about the Great Fire and he's really fascinated (like, "telll me more now Mummy!") Just wondering if anyone knows of a particular museum which tells you about it?l

The monument to the great fire of London! See http://www.themonument.info. You get a certificate if you climb to the top and it is relatively cheap. The views from the top are excellent.

Otherwise the museum of London probably has great fire stuff. http://www.museumoflondon.org.uk/london-wall/

Have fun!

Was just going to recommend the museum of London, lots of really good stuff there, although it's aimed at slightly older children and adults IIRC...

Thanks both, we had a lovely day. Spent the morning at the Diana Playground, then on to the Museum of London. The museum was a big hit, Evan went back 4 times to watch the film about the Great Fire! We liked the kids' activity bags which you can get from the information desk - a little backpack containing toys; pictures; a magnifying glass and torch to help them explore! Thanks again xx
