The Postal Museum
London had the only mail train in the world. Its driverless trains ran below the streets of the capital from Whitechapel to Paddington enabling the city's people to get their post. Today, this museum tells the 500 year old story of how England got its postal service and you can ride those trains for yourself.
Sherlock Holmes Museum
This museum is dedicated to Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's fictional detective. Step inside the door of 221b Baker Street - if the policeman will allow it of course - and the Victorian era interiors will open up a world of memorabilia devoted to one of Britain's best loved characters.
Best Shops in London
No visit to London would be complete without a trip to the capital's most famous department store. Rivalled only by Oxford Street's Selfridges, this store once boasted there was nothing it couldn't source for its customers if they were willing to pay. These days there's plenty of tempting merchandise to keep souvenir hunters happy.
Fortnum & Mason
This department store is a stand out for one particular section - and that's its food hall. Established in 1707, it holds a Royal Warrant for the Queen and also for Prince Charles. In its long history the store has sent hampers to the suffragettes after they broke its windows and installed a quaint clock whose bells come from the same foundry as Big Ben.
