The UK has a long and interesting history and culture, and is proudly one of the top countries to preserve the heritage and share it with visitors.

ALVA, the Association of Leading Visitor Attractions, tracks the visitors to museums, galleries, and landmarks across the UK.

At the number 1 spot you’ll see The British Museum, which is in the Borough of Camden. It holds some of the world’s greatest historical pieces.

Camden Market is also one of the UK’s most visited tourist attractions, however it doesn’t feature on the list as it’s not a museum.
