Tips / Destination

London is a cultural powerhouse of a city, but there are also lots of great museums elsewhere in the United Kingdom. Here are some of the best ones to visit.

Royal Armories, Leeds

This huge museum tells the story of weapons throughout the ages with some truly fascinating exhibits. You could easily spend a whole day in here, but it’s easy to dip in and see some of the big-ticket items, such as an armored elephant, if you haven’t got much time.

Ashmolean Museum, Oxford

Owned by the University of Oxford, this is the first university museum in the world. It’s also the world’s oldest public museum and houses artifacts from ancient societies around the world.

Surgeons’ Hall Museums, Edinburgh

Take a look into the history of surgery at this award-winning museum, not for the squeamish. The old tooth extraction methods will make you shiver for one.

Imperial War Museum, Duxford

The Duxford site of the Imperial War Museum is home to a huge collection of historic planes, including the Spitfire, a famous WWII fighter that kept the Nazis at bay during the Battle of Britain.

National Football Museum, Manchester

Soccer fans will adore this huge new museum, home to the English football hall of fame. Take a look at trophies, classic kits and other memorabilia and test your skills on the interactive exhibits.

Ristorante Consorzio, Turin, Italy

Ristorante Consorzio is almost as famous for its selection of fine cheeses as its delicious wines. After one evening dining here I understand why. The selections of both are extensive and top-notch, and feature a variety of each from around the country.

Work and Play in Italy

ONCE THE FINAL MEETING WRAPS and the last contract is signed and sealed with a handshake, what’s next? Do you catch a flight back home or do you take advantage of the destination? If your next business trip is to Italy, we suggest adding a few more days to explore the country’s most amazing hot spots. Make time for more than a mouthwater- ing Italian meal in these three cities.
