This museum is one of my favorite places to photograph interior shots in London — especially when the weather isn’t nice outside. Spend the day exploring all of the exhibits and don’t forget to ride the escalator that emerges from this giant glowing globe!

How to get there

N51° 29′ 48.4584″W0° 10′ 27.0876″

This photo was taken from the second floor of the Earth Hall, looking toward the Globe Escalator. After you’ve entered the side entrance of the museum from Exhibition Road (not from Cromwell Rd, which is the main entrance) follow the signs that lead to Earth Hall. Take the escalator up and then head to the opposite side of the hall near the gems. From there, you’ll have this perspective of the Globe Escalator.

By London Underground: – Closest Station: South Kensington (via Piccadilly, District or South Kensington lines) – Head east on Thurloe St toward Exhibition Rd – Turn left onto Exhibition Rd and the museum will be on your left Address: Natural History Museum, Cromwell Rd, South Kensington, London SW7 5BD, United Kingdom
