It’s not often that you’re allowed to stand in a room surrounded by millions of pounds’ worth of treasure, but that’s exactly what you get to do at Holborn’s Silver Vaults.
Originally intended as a storeroom for wealthy Londoners’ more high-end items, the London Silver Vaults is now open to the public and it contains the largest retail collection of antique silverware in the world. From shining trinkets to overblown furniture, it’s got basically anything you could hope for made out of the precious metal in this place.
Can’t quite afford that giant silver lion yet? Well, at least it’s free to have a nose around.
