London Culture: Just a few years ago the first cartoon museum opened to the public. Situated at 35 Little Russell Street, a stone's throw from The British Museum, The Cartoon Museum exhibits the very finest examples of British cartoons, caricature, and comic art from the 18th century to the present day.
London's Clubs have been central to London life since the late 17th century. The Cartoon Museum has been granted unprecedented access to the collections of thirteen private London clubs for its exhibition A Peep into Clubland. On show are around 100 original cartoons and caricatures, many on public display for the first time. Each club reflects the professions and personalities of its members and over time has acquired its own distinct character. The clubs, which range from Boodle's, founded in 1762, to Harry's Bar, which opened in 1979, draw their members from many walks of life: artists and actors, barristers and clergymen, politicians and sportsmen, scientists and country gentlemen.
