Places To Visit in London On Fathers Day

London museums the old man will love this Father’s Day

In case you needed a reminder: Father’s Day is coming up, 16th June to be exact. Finding dad-friendly presents can be tough. You’ve done the “best dad” mugs, bought him countless novelty socks and enough shirts to last him a lifetime. So why not plan a day to remember this Father’s Day in the capital?

Whether your old man is a history fanatic, keen on culture or a lover of science, London is brimming with a fantastic range of museums that suit any interest.

British Museum

The world-famous British Museum might be an obvious suggestion but for good reason. Located in the Bloomsbury area, the British Museum is one of London’s biggest and most visited attractions. First opened in 1759, the British Museum exhibits rare and historic global artifacts, including the Rosetta Stone and the Parthenon sculptures.

The museum has over 8 million objects in its collection, with roughly 80,000 of these on display giving dad plenty to explore. For any dad who loves history, the British Museum not only offers wonderful artifacts to ponder but a wealth of education too.

Natural History Museum

Does your dad think of himself as a bit of a David Attenborough? Then the Natural History Museum is the perfect place to take him this Father’s Day. With the Dinosaur gallery and the spectacular blue whale model, the Natural History Museum will allow you and the old man to get lost in the history of life on Earth.

Based in South Kensington, the Natural History Museum is close to the Science Museum and the V&A museum, if you want to visit more than one attraction. They also offer private guided tours, so you can really make Father’s Day personal and give your dad memories he’ll cherish forever.

Victoria & Albert Museum (V&A)

As previously mentioned, the V&A is a neighbor to the Natural History Museum. Dedicated to art and design with 3,000 years’ worth of artifacts from across the globe, the V&A is sure to impress the old man.

From the Islamic and Asian art exhibitions to Medieval Renaissance galleries, the V&A is great for the culture and design lovers alike. There are also regular events held at the V&A as well as temporary exhibitions you can check out.

London Transport Museum

If your dad is a transport enthusiast, why not treat him to the London Transport Museum? Based in Covent Garden, the museum explores the connection of transport with the social and cultural history of London.

Highlights include the iconic red London bus and the world’s first Underground steam train. To top off the Father’s Day treat, stop off at the souvenir shop and treat dad, adding another miniature model to his collection.

Museum of London

If you’re looking to take your dad on a trip to London for Father’s Day, why not learn about the history of the city and stop off at the Museum of London? Packed with historic objects and exhibitions that take you on a journey of London’s past, making it a great activity for Father’s Day.

The museum is located in the City of London, next to other top attractions such as St Paul’s Cathedral and the Tower of London. Stopping over? Check out Dorsett Hotel, City, which is primly located between all three sites.
