Tired of London, Tired of Life - One thing a day to do in London

A website about things to do in London

See a model of old London Bridge

The Museum in Docklands holds countless interesting items, but one that particularly caught your author's imagination on a recent visit was the 1:50 scale model of Old London Bridge.


The model shows the bridge in two different eras, representing how it looked in 1440 on one side, with the other side hidden until visitors enter the next gallery, when they see the bridge as it looked by 1600.

It's just one of many interesting exhibits at the Museum. For more, see http://www.museumoflondon.org.uk/Docklands/

  2. I love it! I discovered this model during Jack the Ripper's exhibition a couple of years ago.

    By the way, I love your site, I'm always taking notes for my next trip to London ;)

    Regards!
