Monday morning saw my mum and I popping up to London to go to the Wildlife Photographer of the Year Exhibition at one of my favourite museums The Natural History Museum. If you are not familiar with this glorious building its situated in South Kensington and has been around since 1881. It’s the home to over 70 million items and has different exhibitions running throughout the year. Entrance to the museum is free but you may have to pay for some special exhibits.
I love just popping into the museum on a rainy day and seeing as Britain is a little miserable at the moment it was a perfect excuse. So we booked our tickets and headed off. My sister and I went to see the exhibition last year up in Bristol so I knew we were in for a treat. After re-living my childhood underneath the giant Diplodocus aka Dippy we proceeded to the queue for the exhibition.
We walked into the slightly darkened room and were greeted with the most breath taking sets of photographs some of which were taken by just a simple point and shoot camera. The competition is divided into lots of different categories and then there are two overall winners. The under 18 and the adult winner both of which were fantastic. I haven’t included any photos of these images because it was a no photo zone and I think everyone should go and see them for myself because they really are fascinating and quite beautiful to look at!
After a little grumble at the strange choice of postcards we headed out into the rain to find something tasty to eat and stumbled upon an old favourite Le Pain Quotidien – if you follow me on Instagram you will already know what yummy food I had.
Both of us started everything off with a raspberry lemonade both tucking into a little bowl of homous whilst we waited for our cheddar and ham tarts with a side salad. Good, honest and healthy (ish) food. After a bowl of creamy coffee we hurried to the train station for home.
