Newest Review: ... turns out not to be from a Hollywood blockbuster but the legendary flop live-action version of 'Thunderbirds'. There's a beautiful set from 'Sherlock Holmes', but it's from the ITV television show, not the Robert Downey Junior movies. And there's a large exhibit about Charlie Chaplin showing some of his more famous costumes. Only they aren't his, they're from Robert Downey Junior's biopic of ... more

The London Film Museum is located near Westminster Bridge on the South Bank of London's River Thames. It sits in the shadow of the London Eye on the first floor of County Hall, which used to be the home of the Greater London Council. As such, it's a very ornate building and seems an unusual setting for a film museum. It struck me as a little strange to see horror and science fiction movie props set in miles of wood-panelled walls and sculpted high ceilings but I guess they're using the space available.

My husband and I recently spent a weekend in London, at the Fan Fest convention. This was a two-day event featuring actors from the James Bond films and the venue for this was the London Film Museum, so while we were there, we had a look round the museum (as it was included in our £35 event tickets).

It is right near the London Eye and across the Thames from the Houses of Parliament. It costs £12 for adults and £10 for concessions and is open from 10am to 5pm in the week, 10am to 6pm ...
