Centuries of science at London's Science Museum

The Science Museum in London's South Kensington is one of the capital's top tourist attractions where history and new tales of modern breakthroughs entertain both adults and kids.

Artefacts from science breakthroughs include Stephenson's Rocket and the Apollo 10. But historical exhibitions are more than balanced by modern-day displays and interactive labs.

Watch a 3D movie at the museum's own Imax theatre or experience flight through the ages as you view the aviation exhibits from aerial walkways.

Fuel your adrenaline on a jet simulator

If you've ever wondered what it feels like to fly an RAF jet, then the Science Museum goes one step further than explaining,

Hop aboard an action-packed flight, on the RAF's latest frontline Typhoon jet. Through simulation, you'll experience a rapid descent from 40,000 feet and the state-of-the-art audio-visual quality will make you feel like you're in the thick of the action.

Enjoy a picnic in Hyde Park

London's most famous park is just steps away from the museum. Take a sandwich and sit by the tranquil Serpentine Lake - an oasis from the bustling city traffic and crowds.
