Beasts of LondonLondon may seem like a civilised place (unless you're on a crowded tube in rush hour) but, as Beasts of London shows, animals used to roam freely in the city. The Museum of London, together with the Guildhall School of Music & Drama, brings this menagerie of animals back to life through an interactive digital installation. There are nine rooms to explore and, with a lion as your guide, you'll meet Thomas the horse, voiced by Nish Kumar, the fox, voiced by Kate Moss, and even the bacterium, voiced by Brian Blessed. A polar bear, sheep, elephant and eagle all tell their stories about life in this great city. Your journey begins before London was created and takes you through the history of the city and significant moments like the arrival of the Romans and the Great Plague, all seen from an animal's perspective. The stories relate to objects from the museum so you can listen to the animals talk and look for the special artefacts connected to them.

About Museum of London

Experience the real flavour of London life from the prehistoric to present day when you visit the Museum of London, a modern museum boasting over 1.1 million objects. Following a £20 million redesign, the five lower Galleries of Modern London take you through the history of the city from the Great Fire of London in 1666 to the present day.
