"When the weather outside is frightful, and the fire is so delightful" switch it off, pull on some clothes and check out these five things to do in London. Not only will they keep you warm and dry, but they're free.
I don't get modern art at all so this is a strange choice from me. Nevertheless, when I've been afflicted by extreme rain induced lethargy, fresh air and exercise are the only remedies. Seen as fresh air isn't a big option when it's pouring, exercise will have to do, and the Tate Modern is so huge that you can ensure that you can spend hours walking around inside it. Cardio - check. Culture - check. Click here for more information
4. The Grant Museum of Zoology If the gross and bizarre take your fancy, you can find the likes of pickled moles (yes, that's right) and other random things in formaldehyde at The Grant Museum. A word of warning for the weak stomachs amongst: treat this museum like swimming, wait at least 30 minutes after eating before going. Click here for more information
3. National Portrait Gallery If, like me, modern art doesn't interest you, then the National Portrait Gallery will be more to your taste. It's full of history and beauty, and you feel extremely cultured after going, even if you're not. No one else needs to know that though. Click here for more information
2. The Natural History Museum It's free and there is a lot of dinosaur related information. That's all I need. For those of you who have no interest in dinosaurs, there are plenty of other things to see too. Click here for more information
Without further ado, ok with a little ado, my all time favourite thing to do in London whether it is raining or not.
1. The British Museum
It's beautiful, it's vast so you get your exercise, and it's interesting because there are so many different things to see: from the Ancient Egyptian exhibition to the Assyrians and the Aztecs plus much, much more. I could spend all my rainy days at the British Museum. Click here for more information.
Hopefully one of these five will make a rainy, London day another happy day in the Capital.
