Not as dull as it sounds… because the London Fire Brigade Museum delves right back into the rich history of the city.
First off is an account of the Great Fire of London in 1666. It then proceeds through the Blitz in 1940 up to the present day, with old fire engines, pumps and uniforms.
You also get the personal effects of Captain Massey-Shaw – widely regarded as the father of the modern-day fire brigade. He was in charge of a team in 1861, and pride of place goes to his helmet and badge.
If you enjoy this then try: Museum of London (walk it in 22 mins or catch a train from Borough to Museum of London).
