Beasts of LondonFrom the soaring eagle to the infectious bacterium, Beasts of London shows the history of London, seen from the perspective of the animals in the city. The Museum of London, together with the Guildhall School of Music & Drama, brings a menagerie of animals back to life through an imaginative and interactive digital installation. Of the nine rooms to explore, our favourite was the carousel where you get to sit on fairground horses and meet Thomas the army horse, voiced by Nish Kumar, and King Henry VIII's favourite horse, Governatore, played by Stephen Mangan. Each of the animals is given a voice by a celebrity so you can hear the fox, introduced by Kate Moss, and the bacterium behind the Great Plague, spoken by Brian Blessed. A polar bear, zebra, sheep, elephant and Tiny the Wonder dog, killer rat catcher, all tell their stories about life in this great city. Tours are in groups of up to 12, the experience in each room takes around five minutes and you only have to wait a couple of minutes in between. During this time you can explore objects from the museum, go swimming with the ducks, walk under a giant pigeon or spray paint the walls so your children won't get bored while they're waiting. Highly recommended.
