To my watchers....I'm going to London at the end of September and am wondering if anyone can give me info on the natural history museum or any other venues in the city to see dinosaurs. Send me a message if you can help.
thanks

A word of warning when visiting the NHM, it can get horrendously busy. The NHM in Oxford is smaller but has some good specimens if you get the chance, it's not that difficult to get to from London by train.

Thanks. Oxford's a possibility. Is there a day of the week you recommend for NHM?

I'd say probably middle of the week, so Tuesday to Thursday.

The Diplodocus is still there at the moment as the blue whale is still being built, i would recommend the natural history museum, on the last Friday of September you can stay behind for science revealed where you can talk to scientists and attend talks. As far as i can remember Isle of Wights museum isn't as good as BNHM but i was very young when i went there. Also if you have the chance visit Charmouth and Lyme Reigis on the Jurassic coast where you can go fossil hunting. There is museums and information there on the fossils. London Zoo is good as well.

I live here...
Well.....
You can go to the NHM, with free entry 10am-5:50pm. They've recently replaced the diplodocus in the main hall with a blue whale, but they still have an Allosaurus, Deinocheirus arms, Baryonyx, Albertosaurus, Stegosaurus, Triceratops, Camarasaurus, Iguanodon, fossilized Ankylosaur armor and a few (outdated) 3-D models, amongst other things. Then there's the non-dinosaur stuff.
Also, an anamatronic T. rex and raptors.
Also, there's a marble figure of Charles Darwin, to whom we evil baby-eating evolutionists can pray...
There's also Crystal Palace Park, where you can see the original dinosaur models from the Victorian era, free entry.

Thanks so much for your response! I knew they had taken down the Diplodocus, and wasn't sure if that meant the rest of the displays had been taken down as well. I am hoping to get to Crystal Palace Park as well -  seems like a "right of passage" paleontological, kind of like going through the Galerie de paleontologie et d anatomy comparee in Paris. 

Is there anything for museums or displays on the Isle of Wight?

Any restaurant recommendations?? :) (Smile)

Never been to the Isle of Wight, but apparently it has rich fossils, and there's the museum, Dinosaur Isle. I think entry is paid , and you can pre-book guide walks apparently, but I guess that's your stuff to look into there.
I don't have particularly good taste in restaurants, so I don't know much about recommended eateries.... but last I remember the food at the NHM London is crazy expensive compared to outside.

Yeah, museum restaurants are always outrageous. 
Thanks!

For the record, the animatronic raptors are *shiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiit*.
