We think it’s fair to say London is a fairly quirky city. Full of eccentric characters and enticing tales, London truly is a city like no other...

The capital’s quirks are what make it such a wonderful place to live, work and visit and the people who call it home wouldn’t have it any other way.

At the Museum of London, their job is to capture, chronicle and champion all the incredible peculiarities that make London the place it is. The Museum of London embodies and reflects those quirks through their exhibits and spaces.

Whether it be through the immersive Victorian Walk area or the iconic London 2012 Cauldron, their mission is to help people connect with this incredible city through all the weird and wonderful stories that have shaped it into the place it is today.

You’ll be hard pushed to find a venue as diverse and unique as the Museum of London. As well as being the largest urban history collection in the world, with more than six million objects, the museum is also home to some of the capital’s most historic hidden gems. From the Art Deco splendour of the original Selfridges lift to the slightly less attractive ‘fatberg’! The Museum of London offers the side of London rarely seen in a tourist’s guidebook but firmly planted in the minds of Londoners everywhere.

With all these amazing elements differentiating them from the rest of the pack, the Museum of London would be the ideal candidate for the ‘Best UK Unusual Venue’ award at the upcoming M&IT Awards! If you agree, get voting for them here.
