Every year on The Daily Constitutional, as the high season for visitors to London hots up, I spend August sharing a few archive posts. This year I'm reposting recommendations from our If You Do One Other Thing In London slot (a regular feature of our Saturday London Spy posts) and updated posts from the Best Museums In London series, in which the London Walks guides shared their best London museum tips. 

If theres' a London Walks tour starting or ending nearby I'll add the details at the bottom of each post. I hope you find these posts helpful over the course of the summer.

Keep in touch - I'm not going into hiding! - I'll be posting throughout August and, of course, I'll see many of you "out there" on London Walks tours. All of our regular features – and some new ones, too – will return in September.

#London Summer #SchoolHolidays - The Museum of Brands @MuseumofBrands We’ve all said it: “Oh, I always meant to go to such-and-such-a-place but never quite got around to it.”
For me it was the Museum of Brands. And how delighted I am to be able to say “was”.
I finally visited recently and was met with not only a vividly colourful, but also a lovingly detailed history of our consumer society stretching back to the 1890’s.  Founder Robert Opie has amassed a collection numbering nearly 12,000 items – amongst which I can guarantee that everyone will find their own advertising Madeleine moment. Informative and lots of fun.
