Discover a world
of natural beauty

Bursting with displays and interactive exhibitions, the Natural History Museum is ideal if you're planning a day out during your stay.

 The attractions can be divided into four broad categories: the Earth, dinosaurs and prehistoric creatures, fossils and ecology, and the Darwin Centre and Wildlife Garden. With such a wide variety, you are sure to find something to interest you at this world-famous Kensington museum.

Our hotel is just minutes away from all of Kensington's brilliant museums, including the Natural History Museum. A short bus or tube ride will take you to South Kensington or you can take a walk through Kensington to reach the museum.
