Fronted by a pair of intimidating 15inch naval guns and a piece of the Berlin Wall, the Imperial War Museum in the London borough of Lambeth covers over 100 years of war history. It tells the tales of those who lived, fought and died in conflicts from WW1 to the present day. The museum's vast collections encompass a wealth of objects – from uniforms to photographs, vehicles to films, weapons to works of art – each with a story to tell. It’s a place filled with the power to move, surprise and inspire and with free admission too – it’s well worth a visit. The nearest tube station is Lambeth North and the museum is just a short walk from there.
