National History Museum London

macuser's picture

Entrance to the Natural History Museum is free, though tickets may be needed for some temporary special exhibitions. The building itself is impressive both on the inside and it’s exterior with a cathedral like structure. The world-famous Waterhouse Building is a London landmark containing the marvelous central hall and its grand staircases; it’s simply stunning. There are endless photo opportunities; I found a particularly effective shot was to be had if you can capture the shafts of light coming through the glass roof. Remember it can get extremely busy so go early or late in the day and avoid school holidays.

The Natural History Museum is great for architectural photography in and out.

You are allowed cameras and tripods in the building although tripods should have rubber feet so they do not damage the floor, a Guerilla-pod would be handy here to get interesting angles.
