The Natural History Museum opened in 1881 and the stunning architecture makes it one of my favourite buildings in London, with its impressive entrance and animal figurines climbing the building. Of course it's what's inside that most visitors come for and with over 80 millions items there's plenty to see! It also hosts the inspiring annual Wildlife Photographer of the Year.

The parts were often taken from dead soldiers or prisoners. Some monarchs even opted to extract the body parts directly from the corpses themselves to ensure they were as fresh as possible. #History England, Genealogy, Queen Of England, British Royal Family Tree, British Monarchy, Royal Family, British Royals, Royal Family Trees, History Of England
