LONDON | The Imperial War Museum London has the remit of including all conflicts in which British or Commonwealth forces have been involved since 1914, and aims “to provide for, and to encourage, the study and understanding of the history of modern war and ‘wartime experience'”. The museum has occupied the former Bethlem Royal Hospital (once known as ‘Bedlam’) on Lambeth Road since 1936 and underwent a major refit designed by architects Foster & Partners in 2014.

The central hall features an assortment of war machinery – guns, tanks, aircraft and the like and leads to the other sections of the museum. Exhibits on World Wars I and II are extensive, while the Holocaust Exhibition and Crimes Against Humanity space are thorough and confronting. Uniforms, posters, photos, video and more all come together in this very well curated museum to try and convey a true understanding of the horrors of war and its wide reaching effects on those fighting in war and the lives of everyday people not directly involved.

The museum also has two other branches in London (HMS Belfast, Churchill War Rooms), one in Cambridgeshire (Imperial War Museum Duxford), and on in Manchester (Imperial War Museum North). All are worth visiting.

Paul founded The City Lane back in 2009 as a place to share photos of his travels around Europe with friends and family. The City Lane might have changed quite a lot since those early days but one thing that’s remained constant is Paul’s passion for food, travel and culture, and a desire to photograph and write about his experiences. Paul has a strong inquisitive nature that drives him to look beneath the surface in order to discover what really makes a city and its people tick, and what better way to do this than over a good meal or drink, with a city’s locals, at places that people who live in that city actually frequent. Paul is also a co-host of The Brunswick Beer Collective, a podcast that may or may not actually be about beer.
