London Photo of the Week: The Natural History Museum

David Bank shared this atmospheric photo of the ceiling of the North Hall at the Natural History Museum.

The North Hall ceiling has panels of intricate paintings inspired by botanical drawings. (If you were also completely hooked on last year’s brilliant BBC Natural History Museum documentary Museum of Life, you’ll know all about them!)

Don’t forget to add your pictures to the Visit London Flickr group and share the lovely things you’ve seen in London.


  1. I have always loved the Natural History Museum from a little child, what an excellent picture, now that I’m much older I have the wonderful pleasure of directing business people from all over the world to the Museum. A national treasure!

  2. I have never been to the NHM, and after looking at this fantastic picture, I now feel compelled get myself along for a visit.
