A Photographers & Visitors Guide & Timeless Stories

The Horniman Museum

20 pics – The Horniman Museum and grounds are free to enter and include the lower gardens and wonderful flower beds with more spectacular flowers at the upper gardens⇐. The museum is a mix of natural history, unusual artifacts from around the word and a small but unusual aquarium (there is a charge of £4).

The museum and grounds are located just south of London near Forest Hill rail station and make a good day out at little expense.  Please click on information/events⇒ and/or the getting there map⇒.  The map shows the route from station to museum as quite short.  It is a bit longer than it appears and is better to take one of the buses (listed on the map page) up the steep hill to the museum stop.   The museum stop is just past this clock tower at the prow of the hill.

  2. I for one enjoy the pretentious fish. They are my favorite kind so long as they don’t get too snobbish.

    • Know what you mean. I think that one is pretending to be linoleum. 🙂

  3. I love Hornimans, as a local I’ve spent many days there. Did you venture up to the bandstand? It has a lovely view of the city including The Shard, and a mini farm.
    Great shots, I love the jellyfish!

    • Thanks for the visit. I didn’t go right up to the bandstand but did get e shot across the city. I’ll probably venture that way again this summer and give your suggestion a try. 🙂
