Parking for British Museum
Although it was founded in 1753, the British Museum wasn’t opened to the public until six years later. In its early days, it housed items collected by the doctor and scientist, Sir Hans Sloane. Since then, it has expanded to act as home to an astonishing assembly of artworks and artefacts from across the globe. Even those with only a faint interest in history will find something fascinating, such as Egyptian mummies, the Rosetta Stone and the outstanding Parthenon Sculptures. A superb attraction for the whole family.
