Take a Virtual Museum Tour of London

November 01, 2020
Going to London would be so good right now, won't it? The beautiful autumn leaves sprinkled throughout the British capital? Now that's a sight for sore eyes right there! Not to mention the cool breeze, even amidst such a bustling metropolis. There's nothing quite like London, period! Unfortunately, however, visiting the city, especially if you're from overseas, isn't exactly the best thing to do amidst a global pandemic. So why not go to London virtually instead? More specifically, many museums in the British capital. A good number of them provide digital platforms to let you see what's inside, even when you're not in London yourself.

British Museum 

There is, of course, the British museum! A grand structure that's essentially a walk through time. Each space covers a specific point in world and British history, giving you an introspective look into the past. It helps that the building itself looks like a Grecian building from eons ago, fascinatingly standout out in Bloomsbury, one of London's best neighborhoods. Though if you really want a closer look at that's inside here, go to the museums' website and check out their virtual tour. Unlike in real life, you'll be able to zoom in and see the artworks and artifacts up close!

Natural History Museum

Speaking of history you can see the planet's history in the city's Natural History Museum. Dinosaur bones, ancient artifacts, recreations of all sorts of extinct animals. There's practically no end to what you can discover in this place. All placed within an equally historic space in the British capital. Though, since you can't go to London right now, how can you visit it? Virtually, of course! The museum offers a lot of interactive online tours to those who want to explore what they have to offer. There's even one that's guided by none other than Sir David Attenborough himself!

The National Gallery

Holstein, Van Gogh, and Titian—these are just some of the most historic names in the art world whose pieces are displayed in The National Gallery. One of the best museums in London, it boasts a stunning collection of artworks made by some of the most influential and important artists in history. And thanks to the gallery's website, you can see all of them without having to step foot in London yourself. The best part? Their virtual tours offer 360° views of most of ts prized possessions. You won't be able to do that when you're actually in the gallery yourself, wouldn't you?

Tate Modern

It's safe to say that, out of all the European capital cities, London is one of the biggest appreciations for modern art. In fact, the city even houses four separate spaces for one big museum dedicated to contemporary and modern art: Tate Modern. Here, you can expect works from the biggest names in the art world today, as well as some that are up-and-coming, all in their present-day glory! And talk about modern, you can even see them online through the museum's virtual tour! From its standard collection to upcoming exhibitions, there's many to explore, albeit virtually, here in Tate Modern!

Courtauld Gallery

If you're a huge fan of Impressionist art, then The Courtauld Gallery is your kind of place! The works of Van Gogh, Manet, Cézanne, and more are displayed here, ready to take any spectator's breath away. But you have to admit, just seeing their works through your screen is just as good! That's why going on a virtual tour of the gallery is a great alternative to actually visiting the place. Most especially now that the world is experiencing a global pandemic! From the comforts of your own home, you can still appreciate the works of such masters just by logging into the museum's website!

The Postal Museum

Admittedly, a museum about the country's postal service doesn't sound all that exciting. So to really get the people riled up about visiting it, The Postal Museum in London actually incorporated its own trains underground, undoubtedly thrilling addition to the whole experience.  And you know what? Even you can ride the train yourself even when you're not in London! The Postal Museum's virtual tour includes a ride in their in-house train, transporting you to different parts of the gallery. Sure, there's no replacing actually riding the said train in-person. But fr these troubling times, even something as novel as this is good enough!

Buckingham Palace

You read that right! You can actually tour the iconic Buckingham Palace virtually as well. Just don't expect the Queen herself to make an appearance. She's not into online messaging or social media herself. But her home is just as grand, just as beautiful, and just as historic online as it is in real life. You get to see all the wonderful halls, rooms, and more that hosted some of the most prominent people in the world. Some highlights include the throne room and the many ballrooms in the palace. Unfortunately, however, you won't be able to visit the best hotspots near the palace after your tour!

Virtually visiting London is now a lot more fun and exciting thanks to the many museums in the city. With the help of their online platforms, you'll get to see all the historic artifacts, the most beautiful artworks, and even the home of the Queen of England, from your own home! 


When you do get a chance to visit London yourself once the pandemic is over, you'd do well in going for a luxury rental for your accommodation!
